Coaching is a discipline that marries well with an assets based approach to community development.
The aim of coaching is to allow a person or group to remain the expert in their own life(s) while supporting them to take actions that move them toward their full potential.
Mentoring is imparting to you what God has given me;
Coaching is drawing out of you what God has put in you.
Rather than needing to have all the answers, a coach asks useful questions that stimulate creative thinking and help the person to draw from their personal strengths and knowledge, and discover what God is doing in their life.
Coaching empowers the person to take responsibility for their life around issues that are significant for them.
The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out. Proverbs 20:5
