Leadership at Ground Level
These are the three areas of life that require leadership skills that I have had success in as a coach for any man desiring to grow:
Small business ownership
Most small business owners are guys with a skillset they excel in, but as the enterprise expands, they recognize they have gaps in their abilities to lead others well. Coaching can be very effective by offering a safe place to admit the obvious, commit to change, fail without failure, and actually adopt new strategies for success.
There may be no other position that needs a safe, competent coach more than senior pastor. No one is more alone in their 'less-than-ness' than a senior pastor, not can the cost be higher for one who remains in this state. Coaching offers a completely confidential environment to be totally realistic about the current lay of the land, as well as a platform to develop to strengthen and encourage the resolve to continue in your calling amidst a very fallen body.
If there were ever a job description that cries out for a coach, it has to be Ephesians 5:25 - "Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her." If this seems desirable, yet unattainable, you're in a very coachable mindset. Entering into a wholehearted pursuit of this is guaranteed to do at least one thing: create far more Christlikeness in you! While it is likely that it will improve your marriage and family, that isn't a good primary goal because you do not have the final say on success in others. What you can know is that you will here Christ say, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
