    Being successful in college means balancing competing priorities: academics, work, family, personal relationships and health. InFocus Success Coaches are available to help currently enrolled credit students manage that balancing act—and it’s FREE! 

    Coaching works to make you focused, stay motivated and get things done. Celebrities, CEOs and other successful people use Life Coaches. So can you!

    Let us help you find your purpose, cope with pressure, and follow the path to your goals. We want you to thrive, not just survive!

    Join small group conversations on topics important to you:

    • Balancing work, relationships and studies
    • Improving your academic performance and grades
    • Plotting a direction for your future—selecting a transfer college, a major or a career
    • Setting goals, reducing stress (e.g. though meditation) and overcoming obstacles

    "During my second semester at Carroll Community College I joined Stress Management group that is offered by the InFocus Success Coaching as recommended by my teacher. I was able to interact with a group of my peers who supported me and helped me. I was going through a rough point in the semester when I was attending this group. Not only was I able to get some incredibly helpful tips and tricks from my peers and advisor on how to deal with the intense workload but also I was able to find emotional support and the confidence to find therapy through the college. I am so thankful to have had this experience and it has benefited me immensely."
