Setting the context is a skill that good communicators master. When the context is not set, the listener is wondering, "what are we talking about?" It is as if the listener wandered into the conversation halfway through.

A good communicator starts with the context so that the listener can enter the conversation immediately.

In this podcast, Brian asks Chad how he is so good at setting context.

Everybody has embedded theology. These are beliefs that we have that we aren't sure where it came from or even whether we truly believe it. A coach can bring this theology into our awareness and provide a safe place for us to give our own theology further consideration.

In this episode, Brian is joined by Dr. Kathryn Helleman, Director of Institutional Assessment and Planning and Adjunct in Christian Ethics at Winebrenner Theological Seminary. Together they discuss how to coach around embedded theology.

The High Performance Pattern (HPP) assessment was created by Dr. Jerry Fletcher, a professor at Harvard. Since his death, the HPP has been championed by Coach Approach Ministries.

The HPP honors the fact that everyone can perform at a high level, but the way they get to that level is unique to them. Everyone who has been introduced to this assessment has found it to be profoundly impactful.

Brian and Chad began this talk about the HPP in episode # 177 and conclude their conversation here in episode # 179.

Brian interviews David Cooke, the director of CCLC (Certified Christian Leadership Coach) for CAM. David recently wrote one of our newest classes, Coaching Spiritual Growth.
 
The Gospel of John, chapter 15, talks about abiding in Christ. This is a description for us of spirituality, which encompasses more than the spirit, but also the body and our emotions. 
 
Here are some bullets of the conversation:
  • Not a formula, but a relationship with Jesus and others - move past individuality - coaching is a good step
  • Exploring discontent (# 6 of 10 stops from Barna's book, Maximum Faith)
  • Discovering the next step of obedience (try to move forward on Barna's scale)

Brian interviews Rev Debbie Foster, who is a pastor to pastors, and takes a coach approach to EVERYTHING in her ministry.

She makes this bold statement early in the podcast: "I wouldn't still be in ministry today if it weren't for the coach approach to my work."

Here are a few bullet points to the interview:

  • Centering in Trust - establishing intimacy - safe space
  • Transition from technical work to adaptive work - more questions, less answers, physically move out of the spaces we are in. Metaphors, painting pictures, allow failure to inform
  • Holding up the mirror - saying what I hear - asking tough questions
  • Making space for the Holy Spirit

Brian was reading Tim Hicks book, Embodied Conflict, and came across the term "Maybe Capacity". Hicks writes:
 
We can create a type of understanding that allows for the coexistence of mutually contradictory accounts, what might be called a “maybe capacity,” a looser attachment to hypothesis formation that allows us to be receptive to, and to convey our openness to, each party without fully subscribing to their account or to our own internal responses to their account. 
 
That is kind of a mouthful. Brian and Chad break the "Maybe Capacity" down to a level that every coach can use.
 
Here are some highlights:
  • Get comfortable with not knowing
  • Ask questions that are wide open at the beginning
  • Create a "frame" for the client to design actions 
  • Let the Client assign the meaning and action to the issue (and yet keep them in a maybe capacity)
