Sometimes you need a coach. Sometimes you need a consultant. Regardless of what your needs are, I can help.
So what’s the difference between coaching and consulting? A coach partners with individuals or groups to guide them on a journey of self-discovery as they move from where they are today to where they want to be. This is achieved by the coach asking questions and guiding the coachee as they solve problems, set goals and create their own unique plan forward. The key assumption behind consulting is that the consultant has expertise in an area of need and will diagnose problems, prescribe and sometimes, implement solutions.
As I strive to help leaders take their Next Step to achieve maximum impact, coaching and consulting are two of the tools I regularly use.
I’m a member of International Coaching Federation and soon to be credentialed Professional Certified Coach (PCC). Over the years, I’ve coached men and women in a variety of stages of life and through a variety of goals they wanted to achieve. I’ve worked with business and ministry leaders as they have sought to achieve more, get clarity on an aspect of life or their work and make next level breakthroughs personally and professionally.
My personal approach is to ALWAYS begin with coaching and see where it leads. There are many great benefits of working with a coach: fresh perspectives on personal challenges, enhanced decision-making skills, greater interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence.
My coaching is:
- Client Focused – You come to the meeting with the agenda you want to work on. My only agenda is to help you get to where you want to go.
- Christ Centered – As a Follower of Jesus Christ, my desire is to help you see what God is doing in your life and help you discover your unique calling and mission.
- Forward Facing – The focus of our time will be to help you identify and take your next steps. Sometimes we need to look back to move forward, but coaching is about moving forward (it’s not therapy or counseling)
- Confidential – Coaching is a safe place where you can know that what is talked about will not be discussed with others (in accordance with the law and coaching ethics).
Curious but not sure if coaching is right for you? Typically my best fit for coaching is someone focused on: personal growth and leadership development. Contact me for one complimentary coaching session to give it test drive.
Since 2002, I’ve worked in a variety of environments, managed people, processes, products and learned a ton about leadership, teams and working with people.
In my role as Executive Pastor, I’ve had the opportunity to help many church leaders grow personally and organizationally. Some of my most requested areas of consulting are organizational structure & systems and staffing issues.
If you’ve got a problem you just can’t get your hands or mind around and would like a fresh perspective on it, let’s start a conversation on how I might be able to help you and/or your church make a breakthrough and take things to the next level.
