Learning to Adult

Adulting is hard. Learning to adult while transitioning from college student to young professional is even harder. You’re encountering a time of significant change and increased responsibility that makes it difficult to achieve a balanced, productive life.

Whether it’s learning to manage your time, better your health, improve your finances, or simply hone your resume to launch your career, a personal coach can guide you in making a successful transition into the world of adulting. Come prepared with questions about your resume, balanced living, stress/time management, and more.

The three strategies Brittany will share with you include:

1) Do you look up from your laptop only to discover you just watched cute cat videos for 76 minutes straight? Are you still pulling all-nighters as you try to crank out resumes and fill out applications?

2) Adulting is hard. Learning to adult while transitioning from college student to young professional is even harder. You’re encountering a time of significant change and increased responsibility that makes it difficult to achieve a balanced, productive life.

Presenter: Brittany Barden

Brittany Barden grew up across the U.S. (from South Dakota to New Hampshire to Kansas, Texas, and more) before settling in Colorado Springs. All that moving is likely responsible for her love of travel, which some years exceeds the amount of time she stays at home! Brittany chose to study her passions in college–politics, history, and psychology–and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences!

Brittany’s coaching adventure started right out of college when she began working as an Academic Life Coach for a higher education coaching company. She immediately knew coaching was the one thing she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Since then, she has worked with more than 200 clients and has over 3,000 hours of coaching experience. As a lover of learning, she has continued to pursue additional training and education, earning six certifications so far. Among them are credentials as a Certified Academic Life Coach and Certified Wellness Coach through CoachTrainingEDU and as a Professional Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation!

Brittany is passionate about walking alongside high school and college students who are making the transition to successful adulthood. She spends her summers volunteering at summer camps for teens and is a guest speaker on risk avoidance and whole-person wellness to freshman high school students around Colorado Springs. She also applies her coaching skills to a broader audience; training new coaches, launching a coaching program for non-profit directors through Save the Storks, supporting college students who are transitioning to the workforce. In her mind, there is no such thing as too much life coaching!
