Am I Ready for a Coach?
The reasons behind the amazing growth of personal coaching in the areas of business and personal development can give encouragement to Kingdom leaders. While the documented results of break-through performance, the development of skills, and deeper personal satisfaction are very applicable to the desires of church leaders – the difference in Christian coaching is absolutely profound!
Coaching is a skilled process of helping someone move from where they are to where they want to be. Christian coaching is a three-way partnership that includes the third person of the Trinity. The goal is not just what I want. The focused outcome is on God’s best.
