There are times in my life when I need a good coach. I've talked about it before. The benefits of an ongoing professional alliance with one person (or a small team) creates unique benefits I can't get in other learning environments. Because of coaching networks in various seasons of my journey, I've been able to:
- gain clarity
- focus my efforts
- sharpen my awareness
- accelerate my personal progress
- increase my personal effectiveness
- improve the quality of my own life
- positively impact lives around me
Let me assure you--this isn't marketing copy with weightless bullets. Anyone who knew me before and after every coaching season saw tangible, extraordinary results. Not only am I thankful for those opportunities; I'm an advocate for others to find them.
Why? We just can't do it alone. Coaching networks are challenging, rewarding, provoking and empowering. It's a one of a kind experience. One person put it this way "You will dream bigger dreams, have insights, uncover and hopefully remove limitations." I would have to agree.
Recently, we've been having quite a few conversations around here about how can we facilitate more coaching offerings for the people who have reached out to us. Even with tight budgets and tight schedules, there is still a demand. I'm getting several messages every month with requests, and have been for the past couple of years.
So, I'm going to give this a try. It might be my turn. I'm launching a coaching network this fall for Church Communications Strategy.
Are you a:
- Pastor, creative professional or ministry decision-maker who influences and supports local church communications before, around and after the weekend message?
- Director who leads talented, uncoordinated teams of artists (words, images, technology, etc.) looking for ways to equip them through change—from chaos to coordination?
- Ministry professional facing the challenge of clearly communicating everything that’s happening in the life of your church across departments and campuses without shutting audiences down in the process?
- Leader in a season or crossroads who need customized, focused, up close and personal attention?
- Influencer who is highly committed to strategic, interactive, out-of-the-box opportunities to roll-up your sleeves and let down your guard with peers you can trust?
Are you an executive pastor? Well, then, YOU might need something different.
