What is Coaching?
When most of us hear the word “coach” we think of sports. Maybe you immediately thought of your favorite SEC coach, running up and down the sideline, shouting across the field, throwing headsets on the ground, hopefully getting a Gatorade shower after a victory. Uh… no. We’re not talking about sports.
The term “coaching” is said to have originated around 1830 at Oxford University when one student helped another student prepare for and pass an exam. At that time a carriage was a vehicle which was also referred to as a coach. The student who helped another was said to have “carried” or “coached” him. It did not become associated with sports until much later.
As a coach, I come alongside others to help them think forward, clarify priorities, develop strategies, and stay focused on their goals and/or mission. The goal is progress, and if you truly want to make a difference through your work, business, in your community, or in our world, I want to help you.
Who am I?
I am a thirty-five year veteran of ministerial leadership, leading both large and small organizations comprised of staff and volunteers. I understand the stress and frustrations of leadership. This is what led me into coaching as a means of helping others. My coaching experience goes back many years when I received coaching, but in 2020, while serving the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions as the interim Church Planting Strategist, I received coaching training through the SEND Network of the North American Mission Board, one of the largest mission organizations in the country. In 2021, I completed the Coaching Mastery Certificate Program through CRM. I personally have many hours of coaching experience and have had the privilege of coaching leaders across the country and abroad. In my contractual relationship with the Alabama Baptists, we have developed a robust network of coaches to provide coaching for church planters across the state. In doing so, have trained a number of men and women who are now making a difference in the lives of others.
As a professional coach, I adhere to the International Coaching Federation's standards of ethics and practice, as published in 2021.
What does it cost?
I want to make coaching available to any leader who wants help, regardless of the size of their congregation or their personal income. While I cannot offer coaching free of charge, if you have a desire, we'll find a way to make it happen. I coach to make a difference and I want to provide quality coaching to anyone who also wants to make a difference. In addition to coaching, I also train leaders to become more effective by utilizing coaching skills. Contact me and let's have a conversation. The first conversation is always free.
