Heightened Self-Awareness. Self-awareness is the first step to any growth. Every leader has blind spots - do you know yours? Coaching helps you develop an understanding of your greatest strengths, your blindspots, and places that you have been growing.
Practical Tools. Coaches have years of training and experience. Through their experience they know what works and are a valuable resource to you. When you need ideas, they often have great ones to consider.
Improved Self-Discipline. No journey is easy. Ministry is difficult. To last in ministry, and respond well to the many different situations you will face, you need to have good self-discipline. Coaching will help you strengthen your self-discipline.
Greater Empathy. The ability to understand, listen, and hear what a person is experiencing is one of the greatest assets of any leader. Your ability to empathize will play a significant role in influencing children and families for Jesus. Coaching is a pathway to greater empathy.
Increased Motivation. Through your relationship with your coach, you will find increased motivation. Like a car rolling down a hill, the coaching sessions will make you feel like the road is easier. When things feel easier, you feel supported, and are given a fresh perspective, suddenly motivation dramatically increases.
Significant Confidence Boost. Like a team with a great coach, you will feel empowered and equipped to lead with more confidence. The growing awareness of yourself, and practical tools you are given, will be the confidence boost you need to lead well.
