W  hat if one skill could increase the level of others feeling loved, valued, respected and cared for by you? What if you could help generate greater ownership, creativity, and responsibility in others? What if you could learn skills to help take the mystery out of growing and developing leaders? What would be the implications for your team, your ministry, your family?

If you’re seeking innovative, critical thinkers, develop them. Grow them through the use of coaching skills. Howard Hendricks once said, “Training without coaching is a waste of time.” He knew that coaching helps bridge the gap between knowledge and good application of that knowledge.

GTD offers workshops to develop skills in coaching. Skills like listening well, asking effective questions, providing sound feedback, and helping others take action. These skills are all part of the COACH Workshop that will be offered on January 16, 2019 (7-week online course) and on March 20-22, 2019 (face-to-face). Not only will you learn, but you will be able to practice and apply these skills along the way. Our desire is to help you be more comfortable and effective in developing those around you – whether fellow team members or nationals.

“The coaching workshop has been one of the most beneficial trainings I have had to enhance my ability to point people to Christ and to help them apply what they know about the Gospel to their personal lives.”

You have probably had great exposure to leadership training, but the idea of actually growing leaders still seems elusive. Don’t just train leaders, coach them, grow them, and develop them. Don’t just give more content, but also provide a way to process and apply what they already know or are learning. Development is nuanced, contextual, collaborative, fluid, and above all else, actionable.
