Now, more than ever, we need leaders who can lead in all 
directions. Leaders who can lead in ministry and in the 
marketplace, during our very volatile, uncertain, complex, 
and ambiguously changing times. Great partnerships 
between leaders and coaches are critical in making the 
world a better place.

 

Listen in as Kim and her guest, Jon Lockhorst, discuss a 
coach-approach to leadership, and hear how to:

• Overcome the challenges in leadership that stem from 
learned skills, habits, and behaviors, so you can 
acquire the mindset you need to lead in all directions.
• Manage the different kinds of investments that come 
with broader responsibilities in organizations, so you 
can step into leadership roles with confidence.
• Walk away with the awareness of life and leadership 
coaching skills that help equip powerful leaders so 
they can positively impact the world

Secondly, if you are new to coaching and wondering how to get the word out to family and friends, Kim will explain how to write a “grand opening” letter to announce your coaching business and you’ll get a proven, word-for-word template you can adapt and use as your own.
