In the realm of TANF coaching, the allocation of a coach’s time is a critical factor in determining the effectiveness of the coaching process. One key metric that sheds light on this is the percentage of time spent on administrative burden versus actual coaching. TuaPath, a leading SAAS platform in this space, has significantly transformed this landscape, allowing coaches to dedicate more time to what truly matters – coaching.

Understanding Administrative Burden

Before delving into the impact of TuaPath, it’s essential to define what we mean by “Administrative Burden.” In the context of TANF coaching, administrative burden refers to the necessary work created to help a participant stay compliant. This includes various tasks, each contributing to the overall burden:

  • Meeting time devoted to Compliance Training and Motivational Interviewing (40%): These are crucial elements in ensuring participants are on the right track.
  • Reminding participants about meetings (6%): Communication is key, and reminders play a role in keeping participants engaged.
  • Breaks, Office Meetings, etc. (14%): Administrative tasks extend beyond coaching sessions, encompassing breaks and office-related commitments.
  • Paperwork Review and Data Entry (15%): A substantial portion is dedicated to the meticulous review of paperwork and entering relevant data.
  • Paperwork Collection (10%): Gathering necessary documentation adds to the administrative load.

Under a traditional paper-based system, coaches find themselves grappling with an overwhelming burden. A staggering 85% of a coach’s time is consumed by administrative tasks, leaving a mere 15% for actual coaching. This stark reality highlights the need for a more efficient and streamlined approach.
