Students learn how to achieve life goals

Andrew Bek, a life coach in Marquette, will host an upcoming Skill Builder on life coaching to bring a new outlook on the
quickly growing career.

As a community mentor with a masters degree in public administration, Bek will receive his certification for life coaching in a
few months.

Life coaching is a positive way to recognize and maximize a person’s potential by focusing on their goals, Bek said.

He added that having a life coach is great for anyone who wants to live life to the fullest.

As students transition from college into the workforce, they want to strive for higher goals and sometimes need a little
coaching, Bek said.

“By the second or third session, progress is already being made,” Bek said. “People begin to feel better about their situations
and take action.”

Bek will demonstrate life coaching techniques throughout his session to give students a better idea of what life coaching does.

The Skill Builder will be held on Monday, Oct. 15 in the Back Room of the University Center from 4-5:30 p.m.

This workshop is free and open to the public; however, space is limited.

Students interested in attending can call 227-1771 or e-mail [email protected] to register.
