Who Needs A Coach?
"I can't imagine living in ministry without having a coach!"
--Pastor Diane Loberger, St. Peter Lutheran Church, Sheboygan, Wisconsin
The short answer to who needs a coach is...EVERYONE! Take a look at this video from Bill Gates and Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google...
A coaching relationship--especially a first coaching experience--is different than any other relationship. Both coach and person being coached--what we at CoachNet call the leader--pour themselves into the relationship, but all the energy and results generated in the coaching relationship are focused on the goals chosen by the person being coached. That's right--the coach does not set the agenda for the coaching relationship.

The coach is committed to listening first, and strives to ask powerful questions. All for the benefit of the leader. The other person. Coaching is truly a generous proposition...it's a chance to give to the other person without any regard to what the coach gets back in return. Think about it, a relationship where someone's goal is to make things better for the OTHER person.
