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.”

感谢神,透过 Richard 协助台湾的事工评估,也知道他有教练的专业(他常用这专业协助我们的评估),因此当我们国家的 Leader Impact 事工邀请他来台湾,教导我们这方面的课程,毫不犹豫就报名了。

工作坊中,我们学习了整个教练过程,他也让我们有彼此练习的机会。在课程进行中,可以感受到他用心备课的精神,让我们有最大的领受。也知道教练是与圣灵同工,帮助人可以看见自己可以改变的部分,或者盲点。让我知道,教练的技巧,不仅可以用在事工中,可以用在生活许多层面。在练习中,我也发现果去自己真的习惯告诉别人该怎么做,这是需要大大的调整。

“我不再是答案的提供者,而是帮助人发现答案并进行改变,整个过程是轻省的,也使被教练的对象更有动力。”
