During this current world health crisis, here on the Professional Christian Coaching Today podcast, we have interrupted our regular schedule to bring you some:

  • encouragement from God's Word
  • perspective on how this impacts the coaching field
  • hope for today and for tomorrow

May God richly bless you, provide for you, and grant you His peace during these uncertain times.

How often do you rush into action as soon as you hear of a problem? It’s common for coaches to want to offer a solution, but it’s imperative to consider all six stages of change in order to provide effective coaching. Today, we’ll walk you through a model that can support people in the decision-making process of behavioral changes—a tool you can begin implementing at your next coaching session!

 

Tune in to understand more about:

  • • How people change and sustain over time, so you and your clients don’t become microscopically focused on completing tasks
  • • How to encourage decisions that flow out of a state of being so the doing (action) is maintainable and not rushed
  • • How to linger and listen through the cyclical stages of change and meet clients where they are in taking the next right step

  • • Why the ICF is changing its core competencies and code of ethics
  • • How to keep your vision in front of you at all times
