I’ll never forget as a young single woman in my 20’s and 30’s, trying to make decisions, having a bout with depression, going to a counselor and him saying to me “Rhonda, you don’t need a counselor, you just need someone to talk things through with so you don’t always feel you are making big decisions alone.”
Fast forward to my becoming an SMD Coach a couple of years ago and I realized coaching would have made all the difference in the world for me. Most people are capable of coming to their own resolve, but just need some effective “coaching, tools, and confidence” to help them! We ALL need a PLAN!
The right coach will ask proper questions designed to help YOU define top issues, set priorities, and create an action plan that can literally be life-changing. There is nothing quite as gratifying as “coaching” someone through a situation, yet they are the one that actually came up with the solution. Coaching is all about “them” and their desired goals and results.
Coaching is a wonderful ministry tool and aligns perfectly with our District mission of Resource – Relationship – Renewal. God has a great purpose for everyone and equipped each with exactly what is needed for us to fulfill that purpose.
