Creating life and college goals and having a plan to achieve them gives you a sense of purpose, builds self esteem and supports your resilience.

Top coaches use the GROW approach to help people achieve their goals.


It gives you steps to follow to get to where you want to be

GROW stands for:


Clearly define a goal


Take a reality check on where you are in relation  to your goal


Explore all the possible ways you can achieve your goal


Create the plan  where you work out  the steps to get to your goal

GROW created by John Whitmore,

Coaching for Performance





What do you want to achieve?



What is happening now?

How close to your goal are you now?



What can you do to achieve your goal?
What are all the different things that can help you get there?



What will you do? - the steps you will

take and when?
