Coaching is a natural outcome from (but separate from) Ministerial Development Review. It is clear and distinct from Transition Mentoring, Work Consultancy and Spiritual Direction. Coaching involves;
- Exploring the current situation
- Listening to concerns
- Thinking strategically about issues and priorities
- Goal setting, with identifiable, clear, realistic and achievable targets
- Giving clear and constructive feedback
- Reviewing progress
Coaches are committed Christians with experience of local church life. They have proven experience in positions of responsibility in church, industry, commerce, public service or the voluntary sector.
