Free Coaching Sessions!

(picture originally uploaded to Flickr by IndiepoprockJesse)

I am in the midst of completing my hours to become a certified coach through Church Planting Canada. As part of my practicum, I am offering 5 free coaching sessions to three people (a $300 value).

Coaching is not the same as consulting, mentoring or counselling. Here’s quote from Dr. Phil Newell about coaching taken from Glen Woods’ blog:

Coaching… looks to the PBC (person being coached) for solutions, and the expertise the coach brings is in helping the PBC discover new options and uncover possible strategies.

In other words, coaching is putting the controls in the hands of the client asking questions that help the client discover and commit to steps of action that move them forward when faced with a roadblock be it a personal or professional obstacle. For more another great explanation on coaching, take a look at this other post also on Glen Woods’ blog.

If you are interested in taking advantage of these opportunities to receive coaching, please leave a comment stating your interest. I will email all those interested a questionnaire that will help me in choosing who will receive the free sessions.

    Based on where I am at in ministry right now, I think I could really benefit from a few coaching sessions (especially with a professional). Please send me a questionaire to see if I would be a good candidate.

      Awesome Jared… I know that I’ve personally benefitted from coaching, thus the reason why I’m pursuing certification. I’ll get you a questionnaire out soon.

    Good for you, Henry! I pray your experience is a blessing to many, including you. I hope that many people are influenced to consider this as a ministry opportunity, particularly in the world of children's ministry.
