- Advanced Classes - Coach Approach is like that Roast Beef sandwich shop. We have the meat! In April, we're offering 3 high level coaching classes for coaches who are ready for what's next. Coaching and the Brain introduces you to the neurological dynamics involved in learning. You'll learn about the five brains and how to take advantage of all those good chemicals floating around in the brain. A Coach Approach to Evangelism and Discipleship gives attention to how a dialogical approach can be effective in evangelism and discipleship. My partners Chad Hall and Bill Copper literally wrote the book on this in their book Faith Coaching. And if you love assessments, you'll want to take Using Assessments in Coaching. You'll learn the "when, who, and how" of using assessments to promote effective client engagement. These are all online classes which start in April of 2018 so go to coachapproachministries.org/coachadvance to sign up now and keep your coaching skills sharp.
- Free Webinar - Want to know more about How Coaching Enhances Discipleship?

- Coach Exchange - One of the toughest things for new and not-so-new coaches is finding paying clients. You need paying clients to get better as a coach and especially if you want to be an ICF-certified coach. People don't always realize that bartering is an accepted form of payment by the International Coach Federation. That's why we put together The Coaching Exchange. The Coaching Exchange is your ticket to paid coaching hours with really good clients. In the Coaching Exchange, you get 40 hours of paid coaching experience, and you help other coaches do the same. Experience matters. Go to coachapproachministries.org/coachexchange to find out more. coachapproachministries.org/coachexchange.
