教练旅程带来勇气和突破。

开始接受 Richard 的教练,可以说是踏上一趟既蒙恩又奇妙的旅程。

人很容易局限于自己的感受,而无法辨识与发现上帝其实已经预备了很多的恩典,等候我们去回应圣灵与发掘可能性。 Richard 教练过程中的聆听与等候,对我是一份厚礼,能够梳理自己内在的纷乱,并在他不同角度、高度、深度和广度的提问中,省思自己在神面前的样式。这个历程缓和并充满安全感,容许我真实地面对自我,却不被论断与标签,可以挑战自己去突破盲点,重拾信心并充满意愿地策划可行的方案。

教练帮助看清自己。

在我现在的职位中,我需要不断地发展新的领袖;因此我参与教练工作坊,并且邀请Richard 作我的教练。

教练时间有蛮大部分在自我察觉,Richard 透过许多深入但中性的好问题促使我思考自己真正想要的是什么、为什么我要做这或做那个决定。

因为教练与我没有在职务上的利害关系,所以我可以更加自然地分享自己在领导上的难处。没有防卫,似乎能将自己的盲点看得更清楚,也更愿意为自己的错误负责、承认自己的有限。教练不需要了解我的背景、不需要有我的专业,却透过好问题刺激我自己去思考、决定、行动,帮助我突破框架地去解决问题、常有令人惊喜的结果。

Discovering the potential and abilities within.

Just like the Bible says that iron sharpens iron, that’s how a man sharpens another. I wanted to get better results, and I realized that I needed some help. If I have a godly mentor, I will be able to ask questions, seek guidance, and reach better results.

How one leader felt empowered through coaching.

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.
