CBMC Chattanooga Leadership Coach Training

"I want to tell you how much the Leadership Coaching course has meant to me. I have felt the need to improve my communication skills for some time and, in fact, I was planning on doing something about it when you mentioned this course to me. I am very glad I took it. I learned so much and it is making a difference in my life. The tools I learned are lifetime skills that I hope to continue to hone for many years. Thank you."

Discover how CBMC Leadership Coach Training is changing the way leaders are being developed and the way people are communicating. Learn how the art and science of listening well and asking powerful questions are at the heart of conversations that can lead to individual and corporate transformation. It's true with your family, friends, business and personal ministry.

This 8-week course is a comprehensive, yet accelerated leadership development program that highlights the skills and practices of classic coaching from a Christian perspective. You are going to see Jesus revealed in some extraordinary ways and will experience for yourself the transformational power of faith-based leadership using coaching principles.

Christ has always been about coaching and through your faithfulness, you will immerse yourself into a God-sized adventure that will impact every relationship in your life both personally and professionally.

Our training course is based on Tony Stoltzfus’ book, Leadership Coaching: The Disciplines, Skills, and Heart of a Christian Coach. A workshop launches our eight-week study course.

For years, CBMC has had a biblical view of leadership. Many of us are leaders. Many of us call others to take up leadership in their areas of influence. But it’s one thing to lead and another to develop new leaders. With Christian Coaching skills, we can develop a new wave of businessmen to represent Jesus Christ in businesses and cities, wherever the Lord takes them.

Leadership Coach Training is the intentional development of businessmen to be:

  • empowered by Christ
  • reflect authentic Biblical leadership
  • model connectivity
  • serve within networks
  • and function as a part of a flexible, Spirit-led leadership team.
