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 Life 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.
