Are You Ready To Be a Coach?

Great coaching requires three key elements:

Competence

Just because you think you can coach doesn't mean you actually have what it takes.

You have to develop the skills.

Confidence

Having the skills isn't enough on it's own. You will have to learn to trust the coaching process.

You have to know you have what it takes.

Credibility

The people you coach need you to help them move forward, and they'll be relying on you.

They have to know you have what it takes.

When you earn the Certified Christian Leadership Coach (CCLC) designation from Coach Approach Ministries, you can have full confidence that you have the skills to coach in a way that is truly valuable and consistent with the best practices in the coaching industry, the principles of Christianity, and your own calling to transform lives.

Struggle is Needed

  Sometimes coaching can be a frustrating, challenging, and tiresome job.  I experienced many of the pains of coaching all in one week recently:  Two no-show clients.  A client who came ready to complain, but not ready to work.  Partners and vendors who seemed hell-bent on making my job harder, not easier.  Technology woes that

Creating Client Maps

  On our honeymoon, Danelle and I were traveling southeast through southern Indiana on our way to the Smoky Mountains when the road suddenly ended. Looking ahead, the blacktop petered out and an enormous pile of rock lay right in the middle of the road. At least, it would have, had there been a road.

The Goodness of Limitations   (1)

  I think it was Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry character who quipped, “A man’s got to know his limitations.”  As coaches, we tend to be anti-limitations.  Many of our clients are held back by limiting beliefs, assumptions, and perspectives.  We often encourage clients to think bigger and to stretch beyond the constraints that they allow
