Studies continue to reveal that leaders who participate in coaching are more effective and exhibit long-term vitality in their personal lives.
Coaching is a purposeful and focused relationship that encourages a healthy rhythm of reflection and action in a leader’s life. Coaching encourages leaders in areas where they may feel stuck or overwhelmed. With the help of the Holy Spirit, the coach’s purpose is to help the leader get “unstuck” by active listening, incisive question-asking, resourcing and reflection.
Coaching is not telling a leader what he or she should be doing. Instead, coaching seeks to frame situations by asking questions and inviting the leader into deeper reflection about their life and leadership in order to bring clarity to their context by drawing out of the leader what he/she already has inside of them.
About the Trainer
J.R. Briggs has three passions: to equip and invest in hungry kingdom leaders, to grow fruit on other people’s trees and to collaborate with others to create good kingdom mischief. In short, his calling is to partner with people who are called to follow Jesus while leading others.
With these passions in mind, he started Kairos Partnerships in 2011 where he serves leaders in the roles of whole-life leadership coach, consultant, speaker, professor, equipper, preacher, author and encourager of leaders.
