epic coaching

Unprecedented” is the most over-used word to describe the world today!

Imbedded in this word is the realization we’ve not been here before. The familiar landmarks and road signs are missing or confusing. The maps we’re referencing are out of date. We’re not sure which direction to go or if we should just take a seat and wait it out.

When faced with navigating new and unfamiliar territory, thousands of effective leaders have discovered the value of coaching – having a trusted companion join you on the journey to guide you toward a meaningful destination.

You don’t have to wander or wonder any longer!

Which tool will you use to fix this?

I recently spoke with a local pastor. He talked about how much ministry has changed for him over the last few years. Now when he goes to his toolbox he discovers his favorite tools are rusty and ineffective for today’s ministry challenges. In spite of a leading a thriving church he was frustrated and weary.

Sound familiar? Are you facing the next season of ministry with the same tools and systems you used last year….and the year before that? Do you lack confidence in the effectiveness of those tools for today’s ministry challenges? Are you weary?

As an experienced leadership coach and ministry consultant, I can help you enter the next season with the confidence and effectiveness you’re looking for.

Coaching isn’t magic or rocket science. It’s simply a series of intentional conversations that enable and equip you to make your life journey and ministry more intentional, satisfying, and effective.

I won’t unpack a bag of tricks or try to sell you the perfect system. Instead, we will explore together who you are, what challenges you face, and evaluate what has worked well and what hasn’t. Then we’ll partner together to prayerfully identify the next steps you want to take to move your ministry forward. Imagine what that could mean for you and the people you serve!

Can I ask you to do just one thing? Schedule a no-charge 30-minute intro session.

That’s it. One simple step. No commitment.

Just a willingness to have a no-cost initial conversation where you will receive significant benefit and discover how coaching can help you. Together we will find a way for you to get the coaching that best fits you and your ministry.

“It is truly eye-opening to go through coaching.  The time I spent with Joe involved a lot of things but it is exactly as advertised: coaching.  Not dictating, not forming policy – just coaching.  Joe is excellent at facilitating.  Most times I know an answer to a problem  The real question is do I know the best answer or even the best way to find the best answer.  This coaching format is the best answer for me thus far.”

“Before being coached by Joe Donaldson I would have set a goal and then gotten side-tracked, failing to achieve the goal. Now I’ve learned to look down the road to anticipate conflicts and potential roadblocks and to make adjustments along the way.”
