What's Included in TAME the Chaos?

LIVE ONE-ON-ONE COACHING SESSIONS & SUPPORT BETWEEN SESSIONS

Three one-on-one coaching sessions per month. How often are you the object of someone's undivided attention with the sole purpose of helping you accelerate accomplishment of your goals? You will come to your one-on-one coaching session wih your agenda not mine. While I have crafted a structure to guide you, at every step of the journey you set the agenda for the coaching. You are ALWAYS free and welcomed to bring any issue to the coaching session. In our initial 90-minute strategy session we will craft the program you choose, adding or removing areas of focus that fit you. Coaching works far better than training because it’s tailored for the individual and designed to meet you where you are. Plus, I will partner with you through the unique set of challenges you face when you face them. Additionally, I offer text and/or email support between the coaching sessions.

SELF REFLECTION EXERCISES

Understanding a topic intellectually is the first step but until you begin to do the work and apply these ideas to your life, you will not experience significant change. I will provide you with exercises to help you apply the concepts. You will not turn these exercises in to me. Yet these will serve an important role in your progress. Imagine your students only listened to your lectures, but never did any of the work and never tried to apply the theoretical concepts to real problems? You get the picture.  

SHORT TUTORIALS

When requested I'll offer you short tutorials to explain concepts and strategies. These are designed to use as needed. I never dictate to you but offer you the support you need. 

ACCOUNTABILITY

Accountability keeps you from struggling alone and keeps you moving forward. Motivation will wane. Hard times and even discouragement can emerge when you challenge yourself to change and learn new habits. Accountability keeps your goals front and center. When you endeavor to change by yourself you are more susceptible to the inner critic. In this program you are not alone. As your coach, I’m committed to your success. I will partner with you to accelerate your progress. Moreover, I have traveled this same path before you. I understand the challanges and have experienced the transformation.

Your Coach: Janet Hudson, Ph.D. ACC

My coaching is unique because I bring 25 years of experience guiding, encouraging, and leading students, faculty, staff, and administrators in higher education. As an educator, scholar, and leader at three very different institutions, I have honed the skills of juggling multiple projects, writing, teaching, publishing, acquiring tenure & promotion, building consensus, mentoring, organizing, designing courses, and coaching others to become their best selves. 

As a coach (Associate Certified with the International Coach Federation), I help clients bring a unique perspective to their challenge. With compassion and grace, I listen and reflect difficult truths when needed. Rather than use fixed formulas, I instead respect each individual's style, pace, and needs. Rather than tell you what to do, I help you discover what you need to do.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is this one-on-one coaching experience worth the money?

That depends on the value of your time. What’s the cost of losing your breaks and vacation time doing crunch time work because you didn’t get it done during the semester. What is the value of recaptured time you once lost to procrastinating? What’s the value of time you no longer lose paralyzed by perfection or whittled away with distractions? What is the value of time you make available to relax and connect with family and friends? Clearly, losing time is far more expensive. When you consider the value of your time, you will discover investing in TAME the Chaos will save you money.

How and when do the coaching sessions meet?

We will meet for your one-on-one coaching session 3 times per month via phone call, video conferencing (Zoom), or if you live in Columbia, SC the first month can be face-to-face. The initial session is a special 90-minute stretegy session to tailor TAME the Chaos for your particular challenges. The remaining sessions for the first month are 60-minutes. After that they will be 50 minutes. You will schedule these via an online scheduler so you can plan while relaxed and when you have access to your complex schedule. I find this works better than experiencing the stress of deciding on the phone or the frustration of numerous email exchanges. I'm also available for text and/or email support between sessions.

How much time will TAME the Chaos take each week?

Completing the exercises and reviewing materials I provide for you are an essential part of your progress. They are part of the change and new habit-formation process. These are not time consuming, but you will need 2-3 hours per week for the coaching call, as well as the preparation and reflection work. Consistency is more important than the amount of time you spend. Along the way you will be adding new actions and habits into your life. But much of this will not be new time but redirected time.  

Is there any value in one-one-one coaching if I’m not on the tenure track or if I’m already tenured?

Absolutely! No matter your job title, years of service, or unique collection of responsibilities, you have goals and aspirations. If you didn’t have goals and aspirations you wouldn’t be exploring the details of this program. Whether you are a graduate students, instructor, clinical faculty, associate professor, assistant professor, professor, or administrator, you can benefit from this program that takes a comprehensive look at how to create the foundation and support system for maximizing your personal and professional potential.  

If my primary responsibility is teaching rather than research, can I benefit from TAME the Chaos?

Absolutely! The pressures and high expectations around a career in higher education are not limited to those on the tenure track. Pressures to publish can feel overwhelming. Yet faculty positions with heavy teaching loads are also stressful. Often these positions require multiple course preps and significant service responsibilities, responsibilities that can become much less burdensome with effective productivity and planning strategies.  

Can I do this if my challenges with disorganization and procrastination are longstanding? 

Coaching focuses on the future. The goal is finding strategies that insure progress. We can work together to create a new story and help you let go of your earlier disappointments and failed approaches. Change is very possible! What's needed is desire and willingness to change. If you have that needed desire and willingness then all the past strategies that haven’t worked won’t need any attention.
