WHAT IS LEADERSHIP COACHING?

Leadership Coaching is becoming one of the exciting tools that effective Youth Pastors use to live extraordinary lives. Through weekly coaching sessions, my clients identify what is most important to them and align their thoughts, words, and actions accordingly. As your coach, I work with you to identify how God is guiding you personally and professionally, and support you in achieving a life that is based on the words of Jesus in John 10:10, “I have come that you might have life. Life more abundantly.” Having a life you love starts with gaining clarity on your values, enabling more meaningful choices and consistent action. Your commitment to your life through Leadership Coaching offers a means for more balance, joy, intimacy, energy, focus, and action in every area of your life.

WHAT DOES A LEADERSHIP COACH DO?

  • Encourage you to set goals that you truly want.
  • Ask you to do more than you may have done on your own.
  • Help you focus better in order to produce results more quickly.
  • Provide you with the tools, support, and structure to accomplish more

HOW IS LEADERSHIP COACHING DIFFERENT FROM THERAPY?

Leadership Coaching is not therapy. The intention of therapy is for the healing and treating of painful problems (past or present). Leadership Coaching, on the other hand, is future oriented and action-based and focuses primarily on getting you from a good Point A to a great Point B. If, through the course of our time together, you decide that you would benefit from therapy, I will gladly refer you to a competent and professional therapist.

WHO WORKS WITH A LEADERSHIP COACH?

All of my clients have one thing in common: they are all successful, resourceful, and intelligent individuals who want to get even more out of their lives. Leaders, professionals, and people in transition are some of the people who typically work with a Leadership Coach.

What professional athlete hasn’t used a coach to win? Joe Mauer is already one of the best catchers in baseball, and yet he understands the value that comes from having someone work directly with him, someone to point out things he can’t see, someone to keep encouraging and challenging him to achieve his greatest potential. That’s who I am for you. Leadership Coaching is like having a personal trainer for your life!

HOW DO OUR MEETINGS WORK?

We will meet by telephone, skype, or in person for 50 minutes, three times each month. We will typically schedule our meetings for the same time and day of the week for three weeks in a row. Weeks that we do not have scheduled meetings are an excellent time for you to put extra time and effort into achieving your objectives.

WHAT IF I HAVE TO CANCEL A MEETING?

I request that you make our scheduled coaching calls a priority. On the rare occasion when you need to reschedule, please let me know at least 48 hours in advance. Except in the case of an emergency, you will be charged for last minute cancellations or missed calls.

HOW LONG DOES LEADERSHIP COACHING LAST?

I recommend you commit to coaching for a minimum of three to six months. The benefits of coaching build over time. In order to make this experience as valuable as possible, I encourage you to make this commitment to yourself.

WHAT ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY?

It is important for the integrity and value of our coaching relationship that we are open and honest with each other. In this light, what we discuss will remain completely confidential.

WHAT MAKES LEADERSHIP COACHING SUCCESSFUL?

Leadership Coaching is proven to work when two factors are present:

1) You are willing to learn, grow, and take action

2) There is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be

That’s all that is necessary for a successful coaching relationship where you can develop the right strategy, implement a plan of action, and achieve your goals.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH A LEADERSHIP COACH?

1) Take More, Better, and Smarter Actions

Our first task together is to find out exactly what you really want for yourself and how God provides direction for you. Once you create objectives that are clearly in line with your personal values and professional vision, you are much more likely to naturally and consistently take actions to reach them.

2) Have A Balanced Life, Which Works Well

Most Youth Pastors will crash because they are off balance. Those who finish well in ministry have committed to a life of self-care. Professional success is maximized when you enjoy a sense of personal fulfillment and life balance. We will discuss how to carve out enough time so your life outside of ministry is exactly the way you want it to be and need it to be.

3) Make Better Decisions

I will help you become focused as you share ideas with me. I will understand you and be subjective enough to want a lot for you, yet objective enough not to be biased or self-serving. You’ll also find that just talking about your options with someone who really listens is often enough to clarify things.

4) Reach For More — Much More

When you have a coach you trust, you will reach for much more because you can afford to. Are you ready to think big and really live your life fully? The truth is that you’re always creating your life, whether you recognize it or not. Through your intentions, thoughts, language, visions, and actions you are directing creative energy.

5) Have More Sustainable Energy

Together we’ll identify the things that drain your energy and create a long-term strategy to eliminate them. In addition, we’ll focus on the things that give you energy, and explore how to maximize their impact. When you’re happy, productive, and free from tolerations and problems, life is a lot more fun!
