3 Keys To Finding A Christian Executive Coach

By Bertulda Zerna

Finding a Christian Executive Coach can be difficult. There are so many questions that come with inviting a coach into your life and business. How do I know if the coach is right for me? What if a coach steers me wrong? How much does coaching cost?

Before you begin this experience, you need to take some time to put your goals and values in perspective. What you believe and how you manage your daily challenges are important, and you need to be able to communicate those beliefs to the professional who will be advising you. This is not a person who is coming in to change your core values, but to assist you in implementing them successfully.

When you initially meet with the counselor, you should expect to do most of the talking. The coach's job is to understand your goals and come to some conclusions about how to best help you reach them. This person should have a clear picture of your business objectives as well.

Thirdly, make sure your coach is within your comfortable price range. You want a coach to stick with you for the long haul. You will not accomplish your goals in "3 Easy Steps" and they cannot help you in 3 meetings. Plan on partnering with your coach for 18-24 months. This will ensure a long enough relationship for them to move you towards your goals and for you to see results.

In some ways you might think of it as a kind of marriage. Once you make the commitment, you should plan to stick with it for the long haul.

There might be difficult issues to resolve and times when it seems discouraging, but the end result should reflect the effort made as a team.
