I’ve worked with hundreds of pastors, congregational leaders, business leaders and community leaders to help them deepen their leadership capacities. I love the creative art of leadership development. I’ve run my own companies, started non-profits and led congregations. Through it all, I have learned key principles that influence what I bring to my coaching work.
Working together, we will clarify your goals, develop a plan for achieving them, and then work together to ensure you accomplish your dreams.
Here is what I hear most often during our first session:
“I’ve started this project, but it’s harder than I thought. I really need someone to help me think about my strategy and help me design a plan that makes sure we grow in the future.”
“I’m running this organization but we need help figuring out how to raise money, hire the right people and build our board of directors. I’m hoping you can help us with this.”
“I am leading a staff team for the first time in my life. I have no idea what I am doing, and I have difficult people I need to manage. I need to figure out how to cultivate a sense of trust between these people and get us all moving forward together.”
“I want to make a difference in the world but I feel like I am wasting my life. I need help focusing on what I am meant to do – what I can best do – and what will bring me joy. Well, if I am honest, I want it to bring me money too!”
I totally get all of this. I have lived it! And I have developed practices to help you push through your points of resistance both within your self in your context.
Working together you can count on:
- Understanding your natural and learned skills
- Learning about your personality based on the Enneagram
- Managing conflict
- Claiming the courage to speak up
- Learning how to ask for support
- Making real connections with congregants and colleagues
- Pushing through your self-defeating thoughts that hold you back
