My opinion is that Mastery of the Core Coaching Competencies increase the Ministry Leader’s effectiveness. Read about three Core Coaching Competencies below:
Powerful Questions and Deep Listening:
- Peter Drucker states, “The leader of the past may have been a person who knew how to tell, but certainly the leader of the future will be a person who knows how to ask.”
- The Ministry Leader as Coach will have a distinct advantage in this area. Coaches learn how to ask powerful questions and listen deeply to the responses.
- A recent quote states that 10% of conflict is due to difference of opinion. 90% of conflict is due to wrong tone of voice. (http://ow.ly/lJtoa )
- Coaches become masters at language, especially tone, inflection and body language. Conflict due to tone of voice can be greatly reduced.
