Why Have a Coach?

Before contacting us, please view the following two pages. These pages will answer questions relating to:


A coach helps you sort out the most important issues in your life, helps you get unstuck, and provides a sounding board when you need an outside perspective.
Les & Tony Stolzfus

Perspective

Encouragement

Accountability

We all need support, encouragement, and accountability when we are making a significant change in our life or in the way we do things. A big part of what coaching provides is accountability—that extra nudge to follow through on what you know you need to do. A coach serves as a guide to aid navigation through life by helping a person move from one place to another. Looking back several centuries, a coach was a horse-drawn vehicle that took a person from where they were to where they wanted to be.


With the passage of time, a coach became a person who assisted a person or persons (aka "team") from where they were (ordinary) to where they wanted to go (champions). Coaches are still most prominently associated with athletics, but also provide great service in the arts (e.g., singing, speaking, acting, etc.) and more recently in businesses and churches. Coaching is a one-on-one method of helping another person grow and change. Instead of teaching a set curriculum, coaches start with where you are, help you define where you want to grow, and then help you get there. Coaching is based on the idea that leaders take responsibility for their own growth. So instead of giving advice or telling you what to do, coaches ask questions to help you sharpen your own discernment of what God has for you. In essence, coaches co labor with people to build or define their vision and then be transformed for the better as they pursue that vision. A coach is a partner who walks with you for a season, provides feedback, a fresh perspective, and consistent, gentle pressure to move forward.

Life is intended to be a team sport, and coaching is built on the power of relationship.

Coaching is a partnership between two equals, one of whom has some specialized training and life experience that can challenge the other to move toward his/her destiny. We all have blind spots, and all too often our friends are reluctant to point them out to us. These blind spots could be the very things that are keeping us stuck where we are.
