Take time to create a robust vision for your New Year. As January 1, 2020, rapidly approaches, it's important to look toward what's just around the corner. Now is a perfect time to not only examine yourself but also your businesses and your clients. We're not just talking about goals. Today, we invite you to go deeper into your calling. Not just the "what" but "how" to go about it. Plus, "who" you need to become in the New Year. So start w/ clean slate. And approach New Year's goals a bit differently.

 

Let God take His Divine Paintbrush and paint a new vision!

  • Dare to dream differently about not only what He wants for you, but also what he wants for the people you are called to serve.
  • Take time to think through what you need to stop doing, so you'll have time and mental space to do what you are called to well.
  • Dare to do different things as you uncover how your vision can be realized.
  • Redefine who you are and who you need to become, so the vision can come to fruition.

If you thought the impact of Christian Coaching was limited to changing individual lives and corporate environments, your horizons will be broadened today. Listen in to our discussion with John Ramstead — Senior and Junior! — to see how Christian Coaching is at work changing the culture of a nation.

 

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.
