Leadership MetaFormation Foundations of Coaching Course September 15, 2020, 10 AM-11:30 AM Pacific Time
The Foundations of Coaching course, led by Leadership MetaFormation's Coaching Director Dave Smith, introduces you to the fundamental disciplines, skills and heart of Christian coaching. Based on the widely-used book Leadership Coaching by Tony Stoltzfus, it teaches the basics of the coaching approach: goals-setting, action-planning, the coaching funnel model of a conversation, active listening, and the powerful asking techniques all coaches use. While required for those pursuing the LMI Coaching the Heart Certification, it is also a great fit for those who just want to pick up more of the basic skills that form the backdrop to LMI's core workshops.

Expect interactive learning with our tell/show/discuss/do training method. Additionally, around week five you'll begin to meet with a class peer by phone for one and a half hours for skill practice.
