According to J. Val Hastings, Founder and President of Coaching4Clergy, sees coaching as a partnership that accelerates what is already underway or about to begin and maximizes potential, moving people from good to great.
I know coaching to be a dialogue of discovery. The client chooses the topic and I provide an open, safe place to discuss it. The client sets the goal and, as coach, I support, encourage, and motivate the client to achieve the goal. Together we explore possibilities and find hidden treasures.
Always, my goal is to help others develop their potential. I do this, not by doing for them or telling them what to do but (in the words of Val Hastings) by acting as “a guide alongside.”
I provide coaching for individuals and small groups. The first session is always complimentary. I conduct sessions by telephone or at your place of business.
