Learning to coach is learning to set up relationships that provide the exact kind of support a leader needs to radically pursue his or her God-given destiny. A coach is a true friend and a close confidant on the path of life, someone who often hears, “I’ve never told this to anyone before, but...” A coach is someone who sees you as made in the image of God, and tells you the truth about who you really are. A coach pushes you to think, to stretch yourself, to take responsibility for your life and get done what you know you need to do. A coach is also someone who will hold you accountable, challenge you to live out your values or occasionally give you a swift kick in the pants when you need it.
Coaches are many things, but the essence of coaching is believing in people.
Nothing is more empowering, nothing causes us to reach higher and accomplish greater things than having people in our lives who love us for who we are and believe unconditionally in who we can become. That is what Jesus does for us—He sees in us who we were made to be and loves us for who we are. Coaching is a conscious imitation of the way that Christ looks at us and the way that God develops leaders. It’s a relationship centered on helping people discover and fulfill their destiny, which uses goals and action steps to move strategically toward that end. In summary, coaching is Relationship- Based, Goal-Driven and Client-Centered.
