Over the years I have always been passionate about using technology in ministry and leadership development. I had multiple roles, which meant leading two teams at some point. Developing my leadership capacity was a major area that I wanted to grow in because I was spreading myself too thin, finding it hard keeping up with prioritizing, and ministry was not getting easier. It was time to get some help.

Somehow I knew I needed some kind of a mentor/coach to keep me on my toes and help me multiply my ministry impact. In March 2014, while attending a technology conference in Asia I was introduced to Richard, a leadership consultant who offered to be my coach. We built rapport and started coaching meeting via Skype.

“Coaching gave me ownership of my solutions, next action steps and area of focus.”

感謝神,透過Richard協助台灣的事工評估,也知道他有教練的專業(他常用這專業協助我們的評估),因此當我們國家的 Leader Impact 事工邀請他來台灣,教導我們這方面的課程,毫不猶豫就報名了。

在工作坊中,我們學習了整個教練過程,他也讓我們有彼此練習的機會。在課程進行中,可以感受到他用心備課的精神,讓我們有最大的領受。也知道教練是與聖靈同工,幫助人可以看見自己可以改變的部分,或者盲點。讓我知道,教練的技巧,不僅可以用在事工中,可以用在生活許多層面。在練習中,我也發現果去自己真的習慣告訴別人該怎麼做,這是需要大大的調整。

“我不再是答案的提供者,而是幫助人發現答案並進行改變,整個過程是輕省的,也使被教練的對象更有動力。”
