There’s a fine distinction between coaching and consulting, and it’s critical that every coach know what it is. Tune in as we address this significant topic and walk away with relevant information to protect you and your business:

  • Meet ethical guidelines and professional standards so you don’t step over relational or professional boundaries.
  • Clear the confusion around the role of a coach as contrasted with a counselor or consultant so you and your clients have a clear understanding of the process.
  • Understand the 3 R’s of coaching so you can discern the difference between what’s requested, relevant, and required.

Do you know what coaches aren't supposed to do? Listen in on a Master-Full coaching session and notice what the coach doesn't do, so you can effectively work with clients who have a lack of clarity on their hopes and dreams.

 

You'll also glean valuable insights on what to do:

~ Ask the client to explore, not explain, more about his or her goal so you can build trust and intimacy by creating a supportive environment that builds ongoing respect and trust.

~ Forward the client's actions by asking powerful questions so you can establish your coaching presence and employ a relational style of communication that will deepen the client's learning.

~ Develop a coaching style that allows the client to have "lightbulb moments" that will bring them more clarity on their hopes and dreams.

Have you ever dreamed of making a difference in the world without leaving your home? Have you ever wanted to influence the world through missions but don't have the time, energy, or money to travel? There's a way to do both. In today’s episode, you’ll hear real stories of applied coaching in difficult situations, receive a beautiful blessing given in Zulu, and discover:

  • How to effectively support missions as you serve missionaries in a way that helps them live longer and stronger.
  • The unique challenges of coaching missionaries and how cooperative efforts can build your business and your reach.
  • Insight into why there's a 70% burnout rate among missionaries and how to help them not only survive but thrive!

 

About Don & Kathy Mingo

Serving cross-culturally in another country presents unique challenges, problems, stresses, and dangers. We’ve been there! God calls us now to help other missionaries through coaching and care so they can serve longer and stronger.

Numerous missionaries share their need for help in marriage, personal life, and finances. Conflict between missionaries is common and a major hindrance to the Gospel. Missionaries are extraordinary people who often experience high levels of stress, conflict, and danger.

Kathy and I are uniquely prepared to help missionaries struggling on the field. As we answer God’s calling for missions once again, we ask for your prayer and financial assistance. As missionaries of the Baptist Bible Fellowship International we, like all our missionaries, raise funds to support ourselves and ministry.

Have you ever heard of a travel coach? Chances are you’re familiar with travel agents and people who give travel advice. But there’s a way to receive highly personalized service so you can identify the things you most desire to gain from travel; and then co-develop trips that are truly life-changing!

Tune in to learn more:

  • Understand the differences between travel coaching and travel agents.
  • How to find purpose by incorporating travel plans that honor your highest values.
  • Gain insights into how to travel inexpensively with a large family.

 

About Dale and Michelle Barlett:

Connecting Life with Travel is more than a tagline. Dale and Michelle Bartlett have proven that anyone, especially families of any size on any income, can travel the world for just the cost of food and fun. This is why they created TravelingU. For nearly 20 years they have explored this world, traveling to over 30 countries. To some that might not seem like a lot, to others, that might seem impossible. They have learned a great deal from their travels, about society, about life, and it is what they have learned and the why they travel, which they love to share with others. The how is actually the easy part. The why on the other hand has changed their family's life and lives of others forever. 

The Bartletts have homeschooled their four children (all of whom are now married) and have traveled with them throughout the world on a shoestring budget; but you would think, they spent tens of thousands of dollars. They have proven time and time again that you can travel to Europe for three weeks with six people for less than $2,500.00 total. Including air, hotels, food, transportation, and more! They have shown others how to do this through their books, speaking engagements, website, blogs, and through their travel coaching. They are proud to have created a travel vision for others that puts the world in reach and into perspective and one that celebrates the good in the world and people. Let them help you create your travel vision and bring your travel wishes into reality: www.travelingU.com

Listen in as John Ramstead, PCC, coaches a business executive through a major business decision in this demonstration of Master-Full coaching. This is a great example of professional grade Leadership Coaching.

In this episode you’ll see John:

  • Develop a sound agreement and check in with the client on progress
  • Help the client see the problem from different perspectives
  • Ask powerful questions that move his client forward
  • Deflect a question from the client by reflecting back what he heard

 

About John Ramstead: 

John has been married for 25 years to his best friend, Donna, and has three incredible boys. It has been three years since a near-fatal accident changed the trajectory of his life. Without the incredible support of God, his family and amazing friends he would not be the person he is today.

As he recovered, John sought discernment as to why God saved him and what He now wants him to do. God gave John a clear new calling: pour the life he’s been given into other leaders to equip and inspire them for work in His Kingdom.

John’s deep faith and his many years as a Navy fighter pilot, entrepreneur, Fortune 500 leader and board chair have been redirected into an amazingly successful coaching practice and popular leadership podcast.
