Rodney Ziebol: Your Co-Active Life Coach
Rodney Ziebol is passionate about helping people, especially young people dealing with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Asperger’s Syndrome. Both of these disorders can cause families to feel a “disconnect” between expectations and realities with their affected son or daughter. As a Co-Active Life Coach, Rodney applies his personal experiences with ADHD and Asperger’s to tailor an effective guidance program that helps a young person get back on track and headed toward their own life goals.
Helping others is a Ziebol family tradition. Rodney’s father was a 27-year police force veteran who spent his career serving to keep the community safe. As a teenager, Rodney joined his local Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program, a volunteer non-profit auxiliary program of the US Air Force that teaches young people leadership skills while fostering a passion for aeronautics and the space industry. After high school graduation, Rodney enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard for four years where he continued to explore his desire to serve others.
Most people think of a coach in relation to athletics: that a coach tells a player what to do and when to do it. However, a life coach helps people define what they want to do and helps them develop a plan to achieve their goals. As a Co-Active Life Coach, Rodney starts out by helping the young person with ADHD or AS apply rules and discover the right tools to create a personalized framework in which to support themselves. This support from within, this living to their own strengths is what allows the individual to then define, transform, and ultimately achieve their personal goals.
