As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. – Proverbs 27:17
The coaches at Culver City Christian Counseling have expertise in many areas, including theology, psychology, organization, and more.
They use their skills and training to create a focused and personal relationship with each client to:
- Analyze the individual’s goals
- Avoid any blind spots
- Work towards finding and fulfilling God’s purpose in that person’s life.
A Christian coach strives to base the coaching process on the Word of God. Through the process of guided inquiry, they can diagnose problems and create a plan for development and growth.
Culver City Christian Counseling provides coaching services that connect trained professionals with individual clients. The goals of personal coaching are to:
- Create strategies for growth, both personally and professionally.
- Increase inspiration and motivation.
- Set goals and work towards achieving them.
Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. – Psalm 127:1
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:4-5
Coaching can help us make internal and external changes as we seek to live in God’s kingdom. The process begins with the knowledge that as Christians, we are created to be salt and light in the world. As we reflect Christ’s character to others, we can powerfully influence them for good.
We want to live well and work well, but we are all limited by circumstances and choices that we’ve made. A Christian coach will help you identify aspects of your life you want to change, support those changes as they’re happening, and serve as both guide and audience for your action plan.
Making improvements to your life can be a spiritual battle, and a Christian coach aims to be a light in the darkness to help you spiritually discern the best steps to take in light of God’s Word.
The Christian coaches at Culver City Christian Counselling break the process down into the following components:
- Action – planning, implementing, and assessment of results
- Accountability – guidance throughout the process
- Follow-through – reviewing the outcome afterward and continuing the evaluation of other action plans
As a client, you’ll have a chance to answer questions that can prompt critical thinking about the changes you’re hoping to make. These questions can include topics like:
- Your vision and mission for your future
- How organizational thinking benefits you
- The direction you want to go in the future
- Who you want to be in the future
- The realistic goals you can set for both the near and distant future
- Areas of your life in which you’ve already achieved success
As you verbally process your answers to these questions, your coach will be able to build a framework that will encourage you to reach for feasible solutions. During the process of change, your Christian coach will provide feedback and accountability. This ongoing coaching relationship will help you follow through with your action plan and accomplish your goals.
The two can be similar in some ways, but therapy provides a process to work through the past, while coaching focuses on future goals from the very beginning. Throughout the coaching process, you’ll be setting and working towards goals to improve your personal and professional life. Issues such as anxiety, depression, or other psychological concerns are not generally addressed in coaching but can be worked on in therapy.
- Therapy helps people work through pain or harm they’ve suffered from the past.
- Coaching assesses a person’s current situation and helps them reach their potential.
In therapy, you might seek answers to questions like, “Why did this happen to me?”
In coaching, you’ll answer questions such as, “What doors is God opening for me?” and, “How am I going to get where I want to go?”
Are you motivated to create positive change in your life, but need motivation and direction to make it happen? Coaching services can provide the structure you need to set and achieve goals that will make a big difference in your life.
You don’t have to have a problem that coaching will solve; instead, you just need to have a desire for improvement and a commitment to making an effort to improve one or multiple areas of your life. This will set you up for success in the coaching process as you receive guidance and accountability along the way.
Coaching requires an initial investment, so is it worth it? One study reported the rate of return on the coaching investment as 5.7 times the initial cost. Other case studies exemplify the improvement coaching brings in coworker relationships, quality of work life, personal accomplishment, and well-being at work.
If you want to improve your knowledge, skills, personal fulfillment, and capacity for change, coaching can profoundly impact your life.
Are you a professional who’s asking questions about what direction your career should go next and what steps you should take to get there? Do you want to become better at time management and work-life balance? Do you want to manage your stress levels more effectively?
According to LifeCoach.com, “Many of today’s most successful business leaders, professionals, executives, entrepreneurs, and CEOs use the services of a life coach to take their lives, careers, or businesses to the next level.” (http://www.lifecoach.com/what-is-a-life-coach)
If this description fits you, call us today to schedule your first coaching session.
You’ll meet with a skilled, experienced Christian coach to have a one-on-one conversation. During your initial session, the coach will assess your situation and help identify the challenges you’re facing and the opportunities available to you.
Next, with the support of your coach, you’ll be able to create an action plan based on your desired outcomes.
Generally, this process falls into a sequence such as:
- Proposing a framework for the work
- Assessing and diagnosing the current situation
- Creating an action plan
- Carrying out the action plan step by step
- Providing feedback based on the outcome
As part of this process, your coach may give you specific action steps that will help you reach your goals in between each session.
The length of the coaching process will vary for each client, depending on your desired goals and outcomes and your individual work style. The length of the process will also depend on how frequently you wish to meet with your coach.
At Culver City Christian Counseling, we use the acronym S.O.A.R. to remind coaching clients of the areas in which we want them to succeed, namely, strengths, opportunities, aspirations, and results.
…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31
