About this event

Multiply your ministry impact ...

Coaching skills can increase your effectiveness in your ministry and leadership roles. Many people who have taken this workshop have seen significant advancement in their ministry impact while seeing their stress and busyness go down. Coaching, as taught in this workshop, is not a new program to add to your already busy schedule. It is an approach to doing ministry, mentoring, or supervising that can be incorporated into your current role. It is a more effective way of leading. The course is very practical and interactive, with lots of skills practice.

Not just the basics…

Based on the book, The COACH Model for Christian Leaders, this workshop is designed for those who are new to coaching, as well as for those who have been using coaching skills for a while.

During the workshop, you will become familiar with the COACH Model® and use it to coach other participants. By the end of the workshop, you will have the skills needed to use coaching in your work and home contexts.

Topics and skills covered in this practical and interactive workshop:

  • How to listen actively so others feel you understand them.
  • How to ask powerful questions that initiate a change of thinking.
  • How to generate feedback that avoids defensiveness.
  • How to design action steps that will actually be accomplished.
  • How to follow up to increase learning and accountability.

Join the Coaching Workshop for Christian Leaders and get practical leadership skills training!

When will we meet?

The workshop will meet for 4 hours a day (8:30-12:30) on May 6 & May 9-13, 2022.

There are two follow-up meetings after the workshop to help you hone your coaching skills. These will be scheduled for 4 weeks and for 8 weeks after the end of the workshop. The exact days and times will be determined on the last day of the workshop.
