This week on the podcast we continue our conversation about planning for your summer and identifying various types of support systems.
We have a powerful conversation about support for caregivers and parents with Caroline Sumners the founder and CEO of Empower Academic Coaching. She and her team help middle and high school students with customized strategies for learning and achieving their academic goals in a peaceful way. She also helps parents and family members step outside of the homework monitor role so they can build great relationships with their teens.
In this episode, Caroline joins us to share her insights on all the ways academic coaching can be a support system for your teen, you, and your family including creating space for you to step outside of the homework monitor role.
We also talk to Caroline about her own journey as an entrepreneur; where she finds support, the values that inspire and motivate her, the ways in which she’s centered inclusion and belonging, as well as her vision of the future of the type of work she does.
Join us as we explore the intersection of business and education and how we can prioritize learning and development in all aspects of our lives.
You find Caroline on instagram at @empoweracademic and on LinkedIn. And, as mentioned in the episode, you can find the Academic Skills Quiz on her website, Empower Academic Coaching, where you can identify whether your child would benefit from some external support on academics.
During this episode, Caroline also referenced Trudi Lebron and her book, The Antiracist Business Book as resources that have helped her in her DEI journey and approach.
We would love to connect with you!
