My passion as a coach trainer is to equip and impart my heart for building and developing people using the coaching model. One of the best ways I know how to do that, beyond training in the process and skills of coaching, is to mentor others through a process of deliberate practice with feedback, utilizing coaching skills in real life coaching conversations.
Coaching is a skill which is best learned through practice and feedback. As pointed out by Cal Newport in his book, Deep Work, outstanding performance isn’t a result of natural talent, but rather hard work in the form of deliberate practice. He goes on to define deliberate practice as “practice designed to improve a specific skill using intense focus, repetition and continuous feedback.”
Participants must have completed at least minimal training in coaching to ensure their maximum benefit from the class. That training could be in the form of Levels I and II workshops through Bethel Coaching, Foundations in Christian Life Coaching through Masterbuilder Coach Academy, or a recognized equivalent approved by the trainer.
