Coaching differs from mentoring in that the focus is generally entirely on your agenda. A coaching relationship offers focus, challenge, support, and encouragement within the course of regular conversations. The purpose is to help you discover your answers for your context and move forward.
The role of the coach is to listen and ask the questions that will help you identify the issues you most need to focus on, find clarity in and feel a sense of purposeful empowerment as you recognize that in the adventure of leadership, God is with you. And more, success is more about Him working something in your life through the rigors of leading than it is about many of the metrics we often think of in relation to “success.”
A coach will come alongside you, helping you to clarify what areas you’d like to work on or need help thinking through and helping you define the action steps needed to move forward.
Coaching provides a listening ear, an encouraging voice, and a safe place to talk through the challenges, questions, and even the joys of leadership. We’ll work together towards finding answers to the tough questions involved in whatever is in front of you.
My goal is to build a relationship that not only encourages you in the adventure of leadership, but very much co-operates in what God is doing in your life, your community and our world in general.
