THE ART OF COACHING
Coaching helps you - or you and your team - to move from “where you are,” to “where you’d like to be” in any area of your life or your organization. Group or team coaching is very interactive, and helps to create a strong team culture.
Coaching is a designed alliance. A good coach comes along-side to listen intently, asking questions to draw out your thoughts and ideas. Coaching creates focus, motivation, and accountability. It can move people forward in life and leadership much faster than they could go on their own.
We work with teams, helping them to clarify their mission, vision, and values, or working with them to design a new strategic plan for their organization.
We use the model below when coaching individuals to discover their design and purpose, to clarify their personal values, to live more intentionally, or to lead from the inside-out - with character, skill and focus.

"The work you have done with me has been invaluable and I feel now that I am finally starting to put the coaching to use. After my initial step into the leadership world, I was at every conference, reading anything I could get my hands on but wasn’t utilizing it. I was more consumed with being a sponge and wasn’t pouring any of what I learned back out.
Finally comfortable in my new leadership shoes and more confident in my faith, I am now allowing the Holy Spirit to lead me, thus leading others with Christ as my daily blue print for living and leading. What an amazing feeling and way to live one’s life! I appreciate that your faith was apparent in our sessions and taught me how to use it in all aspects of my life." A Coaching Client
A GOOD COACH IS NOT:
- A Consultant who gives advice as an expert in your field.
- A Mentor who gives guidance as someone who is a little further along in life.
- A Teacher who passes on knowledge or information.
- A Therapist who helps people who are stuck in the past.
The coaches listed below are independent contractors who are in our Leader to Leader™ Community. They have been certified by us and believe in our framework, principles and strategies for leadership development, as well as our statement of faith.
Each coach also has their own areas of expertise, and they have a variety of tools in their "coaching tool boxes." Check them out and give one of them a call if they could be of service. They can help you move from where you are to where you want to be faster than you could go on your own.
