Don’t Wait to Register for Coaching 101 April 13-14 in Pittsburgh

What will the Church look like when its leaders discover what God is calling them to do, and then do it?

Coaching raises the effectiveness of clergy and other leaders in their investment in others, and accelerates the goal-reaching process. Incorporate its skills into your personal and lay leadership development, and imagine the impact coaching could have on your congregation and community.

Coaching 101 participants dig deep into the coaching process, explore techniques for asking powerful questions, practice being an active listener, and leave prepared to coach others at a basic, and effective, level.

Here is what leaders have said about coaching’s impact on their ministries:

“Coaching has been the single most helpful thing for me in ministry in the past two years.  [My coach] helps me to ask questions and to seek answers about the ‘big picture’ of my ministry that I do not talk about regularly with church leaders.  Our time together has truly propelled me in ministry.”

“Coaching gives me an objective person to bounce ideas off.  It helps to think through ideas more thoroughly, which results in creating more coherent and strategic action plans for successful implementation. “

“One of the greatest challenges in ministry is staying focused in the face of distractions and competing expectations. Coaching has helped me to name and own the vision, and focus my energy and time on the important in the face of the urgent.  It has also helped me to use my creativity much more effectively in that process.”

This workshop is open to anyone interested in developing coaching skills, but is a prerequisite for Titus’ Coach Certification candidates.
