TAKE YOUR CALLING AS A COACH TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL
Hear one client's experience of being coached by Krystyna Gadd
"This course has been exceptional in delivery, value for money and course content. I wanted to obtain a deeper authenticity in my coaching delivery, and this course provided the tools and approach. My confidence has been heightened. My God given gift of coaching has been strengthened. Carole is very approachable. She has enthusiasm in her delivery, God minded and willing to share her experience of growing in Christ and ensuring her approach as well as her coachees (course attendees) experience of Christ is deepened in their coaching practise. A thoroughly enjoyable course, that also opens coach networking opportunities.”
“This is an excellent course that far exceeded my expectations! It was thorough and included a lot of coach practice. The other participants were great and what I have learned is invaluable. The fundamentals of secular coaching are included, however, the fact that it’s scripturally rooted with Christ at the centre adds another dimension. Carole is an experienced and gifted teacher with a real heart for Christian coaching. She is very supporting and approachable.”
“I came to the Christian Coach Toolbox with a degree of scepticism, wondering what the 'Christian' content would add to the practice of coaching. Within the first session any doubts were dispelled as Carole introduced us to the basic framework she uses to anchor the coaching conversation on Christ and the scriptures which speak of him.
I believe wholeheartedly in the power of the coaching process to enable people to move on in their lives, and I use the techniques in my daily work with the Probation Service. What the Toolbox adds is the dimension I have always felt is missing from secular coaching, that is spiritual insight grounded in scripture.
Through a combination of theory and practice sessions we were taken, as participants, through the essential skills of establishing goals, building rapport, asking good questions, and listening. We practised the skills on each other and learned how to make sure that Christ was central to the process. Linking in with a 'coaching partner' is a key feature of the Toolbox and ensures that there is a chance to practice skills between the tutored sessions.
As I come towards the end of the course all scepticism has long since vanished, and there has been an enrichment of my secular coaching practice. Carole has proved to be a knowledgeable tutor, committed to Christ, with a wonderful blend of fun humanity and challenge. I have found it very helpful to review my own attitude, motivations and sense of accountability in the light of her tutoring. I will be recommending this course as a personal development tool, or a tool to use in discipleship. I believe that anyone involved in leadership in a Christian context would find these amongst the best-spent days of their lives.”
