Coaching is all about coming alongside leaders of all kinds to help them discover their God given potential and in turn yield greater fruitfulness. Through a regular, focused conversation with a trained quality coach has been proven to increase ministry effectiveness by on average 300%.
Coaching differs from consulting in the direction of solutions. Rather than a consultant putting solutions in to a leader a coach helps draw solutions out of a leader’s heart, experience and to discover God’s direction given his individual context.
Coaching with Matt Soderstrum involves a monthly focused conversation built around a leaders mission, vision and values. The conversation begins before the phone ever rings or arriving at the coffee shop with responding to questions loaded onto the on-line coaching tool available through a subscription at www.coachnet.org. Preparation by the coach and the client is a critical key to coaching success. The appointment begins promptly at the agreed upon time and lasts for up to 90 minutes. The coach and client will work through an agenda driven by the client’s needs not the coach’s program. Focusing upon goals and objectives for the purpose of spiritual engagement, leadership development and behavioral change help release a leader into deeper reflection, increased capacity and more fruitful practices.
Matt has received several hours of training and certification through coachnet.org. If you are interested in looking into the possibility of a coaching relationship with Matt, please contact him.
