Coaches’ Corner: Briana Graham
How long have you been a GLSLP coach? 2 years.
What inspired you to become a GLSLP coach? I became a GLSLP coach to help college students from rural counties understand the value of their education and the opportunity to help improve rural North Carolina. I want to make sure they thrive in college and become leaders in their communities.
What learning objective or activity utilized at conferences (i.e. DAC, Values Explorer, etc.) do you think is most beneficial to the scholars? I think the Values Explorer activity is the most beneficial at conferences. It requires the scholars to think about what they value in a leader and to make sure they also exhibit those qualities as they progress.
What is something you may have learned at conferences that has been particularly useful in your day-to-day life?Conferences are beneficial to coaches because they also experience the leadership activities. We learn how to communicate effectively with our scholars and ensure they are progressing through the program.
Where do you hope to see the scholars in your coaching group five years from now? Years from now I hope to see my scholars happy. I hope to see them in the jobs they love and fostering healthy relationships in their career and personal lives.
