Research and experience show that coach training can dramatically enhance the ministry leader’s effectiveness as a leader and greatly increase their impact. More effective leadership means more churches can grow and thrive, and this benefits the entire local community.
The Coaching Gym addresses one of the major hurdles new coaches face – how to get your first client. In Station 2 of the program, participants are paired up with a real client, who they coach on a pro bono basis. "This is a real person," explains Coaching4Clergy Founder J. Val Hastings, "Not another coach or someone in your existing network."
For someone with some basic coach training under his or her belt, "This is your next step, your chance to flex and use your coaching muscles." Hastings continues, "We take you up the coaching ladder; first you're coaching other coaches, then you get your first client, next you take your skills back to your community and then you can even learn how to teach others to coach."
