Frameworks in Coaching

Monthly Focus for March 2020

One of the things Brian Miller and I love most about providing leadership to CAM is hearing from coaches around the world who share that we’ve helped them grow into better coaches.  It’s rewarding, to say the least.  Hopefully we share lots of helpful advice, but clearly one of the most helpful things we’ve ever shared is the power of frameworks for coaching.  They are the coach’s secret sauce.  Why?  Because they provide structure to the coaching relationship, but not too much structure.

This month in the CAM Community of Coaches we are putting the focus on frameworks.  If you’ve never heard of a coaching framework, we want to bring you up to speed.  If you know about frameworks but aren’t leveraging them in your coaching, we want to help you put them to work.  And if you’re a framework pro, we want you to share your experience.

Be sure to comment on frameworks in the private Facebook group and to join us for the members’ only webinar, which will be held on Thursday March 12th at 11:00 AM Eastern

Coaching in a Ministry Context

Monthly Focus for February 2020

Don’t miss this month’s CAM Community of Coaches webinar, which will focus on applying coaching to a ministry context.  What do we mean by a “ministry context?”  Well, we’re focused on much more than just local church staff.  We’re interested in church, para-church, and denominational settings as well those who do ministry as a vocation or as a volunteer.  The main thing I’m intrigued with is how coaching enhances key ministry objectives, no matter the specifics of a ministry setting.

To help explore this month’s focus, I want to invite you to do two things:

  • Leave a comment in the CAM Community of Coaches private Facebook group. Tell the community about your experience, your ideas, your suggestions, etc.
  • Join us for the monthly webinar, which will be held February 13th at 11:00 AM Eastern Time.

Thanks for being a part of the CAM Community of Coaches and for helping express God’s kingdom through coaching.

Coaching Teams

Monthly Focus for January 2020

You’re a member of the CAM Community of Coaches for one simple reason: you want to be a better coach.  Since this is a goal shared by you and the couple of hundred other coaches in the community, our team offers a monthly focus.  This month’s focus: teams. 

Teams benefit greatly from coaching, but coaching teams is not always the easiest thing in the world.  The dynamics are more complex.  The coaching skills get practiced in distinct ways.  And the relationship between coach and client gets tricky (after all, WHO IS the client?). 

If you have experience coaching teams, please offer up some insights and best practices in the community Facebook group this month.  (If you’re not on Facebook, just send your message to our community organizer, Martin Torres and he’ll post it for you). 

Also, be sure to check out this month’s CAM Community of Coaches webinar, which is January 9 at 11:00 AM Eastern Time.  During the webinar, we’ll address some key issues for getting great results when coaching teams.  Join in the webinar or check out the recording here on the member website!
