Brian and Chad dig into the ICF competency of Designing Actions and geek out on its focus on learning.
Brian interviews Rev Debbie Foster, who is a pastor to pastors, and takes a coach approach to EVERYTHING in her ministry.
She makes this bold statement early in the podcast: “I wouldn’t still be in ministry today if it weren’t for the coach approach to my work.”
Here are a few bullet points to the interview:
Brian was reading Tim Hicks’ book, Embodied Conflict, and came across the term “Maybe Capacity”. Hicks writes:
We can create a type of understanding that allows for the coexistence of mutually contradictory accounts, what might be called a “maybe capacity,” a looser attachment to hypothesis formation that allows us to be receptive to, and to convey our openness to, each party without fully subscribing to their account or to our own internal responses to their account.
That is kind of a mouthful. Brian and Chad break the “Maybe Capacity” down to a level that every coach can use.
Here are some highlights:
Brian interviews Ken Kessler about his role in creating a coaching culture in his denomination.
Ken is the Director of the Coaching Network for the Baptist General Association of Virginia (bgav.org).
They discuss the dynamics of creating a coaching culture.
