Christian Leadership Coaching expedites the development of character and competencies in leaders who are motivated to become better leaders and to fulfill their life purpose. Our coaches support, encourage and hold clients accountable to accomplish goals they choose in areas where they are motivated to grow and change.
Are you a leader? Yes. Every person is at least a leader of their own life. And you probably lead with influence in the life of at least one other person. As Leadership Coaches we help our clients to become better leaders of their own life and to use all that you learn by being coached to develop other leaders that you influence.
If you are a leader who wants to be coached, we require investment in a minimum of seven hours of coaching over three months. After that, the frequency and duration of coaching is at your discretion. The first session is two hours and the next five hourly sessions are scheduled every other week for the duration of three months. This is the minimum of interactions with a coach over a minimum span of time needed for most leaders to pursue and accomplish their goals.
Fees vary per coach and type of coaching, but always include unlimited brief calls to the coach (10-15 minutes), and unlimited correspondence (journal, meeting minutes, reflections on goals, reports on action steps, etc.).
What You Can Expect From Your Coach*
- Challenge - Great coaches help clients go beyond where they would have gone by themselves by challenging them to reach higher and to expand their goals, and to go deeper to the transformational level and not just focus on symptoms and surface issues.
- Listening – Simply listening alone is a tremendous gift to a client. Listening helps a client talk through a potential course of action, and clarify his or her own thoughts. Active listening uses intuition and powerful questions lead to fresh insight and more significant reflection.
- Encouragment - Affirmation re-energizes clients and actively helps them to reach their goals. Coaches are genuinely excited about their clients progress, look forward to meeting to inspire them about who they are and what they can become.
- Accountability – Accountability provides the discipline a client needs to get important things done. Healthy accountability builds on a client’s internal motivation and maintains progress toward accomplishment of important goals while flexibly adapting to the realities of life.
- Relationship – An authentic, life-giving relationship is the doorway into a client’s life and the source of their influence. Great coaches are constantly building relational capital, catalyzing authenticity and caring for the relationship.
- Perspective – Coaching provides a sounding board – feedback, a fresh viewpoint, and occasionally a healthy dose of truth to help clients solve their own problems. Great coaching helps align thinking with reality to produce effective solutions.
