Coaches assist clients in deepening their learning, improving their performance, and enhancing their quality of life. Progress is made as the coach gathers from the client, through solution-focused conversations, exactly what the client desires to achieve. Then he encourages the client to consider all the possibilities, even the ones that seem out of reach. The coaching conversation always focuses on four questions: 1. What do you want? 2. How might you get it? 3. How might you commit to making this happen? 4. How will you know if you got it? The coach guides the client into generating his own insights and solutions so that the client truly owns the outcome and understands his personal potential for maintaining a positive direction in the future.
After establishing rapport and building trust in the relationship, a coach begins to use his communication skills by asking pertinent and powerful questions. This moves the client toward learning to think outside the proverbial box, realizing that continuing to do the same things in the same ways will not lead to positive change and progress. Listening to the client’s responses to questions, making key observations, and suggesting helpful tools and exercises, allows the coach to lead the client into a place of clarity, focus, and readiness for action. This enhanced awareness and motivation enables the coach/client partnership to begin planning, setting goals, and designing effective action steps. Ultimately, the client develops a vision and a blueprint for a preferred future, accompanied by very real ways to progress in that direction at all times, while the coach encourages and holds the client accountable to his own decisions and commitments.
In working with a Christian coach, there are some important scriptural principles which should be taken into consideration. A coach is positive and solution-focused, not problem-focused (Philippians 4:8), a coach is future-oriented (Philippians 3:13-14), a coach is about possibilities (Philippians 4:13), and a coach includes God (Mt. 18:20).
In order to clarify further what a coach really is, it is helpful to contrast a coach with others that appear to fulfill a similar role. In other words, we can define a coach by what he is not.

1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
James 3:16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

Philippians 1:16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:

17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.
18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

we preach Christ 1st.

Not to clients, that should pay.

to be bartered.

John 2:16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
