If Champion Athletes Have Coaches at Their Jobs, Shouldn’t You as Well?
Lebron James is arguably the best player that’s ever played the game of basketball… unless you are from Chicago, IL. He has had not one, but six coaches work with him to improve his game and help him win more games while he was with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa will be competing with each other to become the starting quarterback for Alabama in the fall. They will also have 14 coaches working with them and the rest of the team to help Alabama try to win back-to-back national championships. My friends at Georgia and Clemson might have a thing or two to say about that.
Dustin Johnson is the number one golfer in the world. He has five different people helping him work on his game including a coach, two swing instructors, a trainer and a caddie who helps him when he’s on the course. The BEST golfer in the world has FIVE people coaching him to stay on top of his game
I’m no Lebron James… though the two of us have a combined 31,000 points in our basketball careers. What Lebron and I also have in common is that we have had coaching in our lives to improve our games. If champion athletes have coaches, shouldn't we as well? Click To Tweet
My dad was actually one of my first coaches when I was growing up playing baseball.
Charlie, Lee and Chris were coaches when I began my faith journey.
Tom, Dan and Bob were instrumental to the coaching I received while preparing for my days as a city manager.
Mark and Tim coached me on how to translate my gifts and wiring from the marketplace into ministry leadership.
Since launching The Unstuck Group, I’ve continued receiving coaching from people like Doug and Lance who have helped shape how I lead my team and the strategy we use to help churches get unstuck.
They may not realize it, but my current leadership team including Amy, Mark, Tiffany and Sean are constantly coaching and influencing me and the direction of my leadership. Have I mentioned recently how much I love my team?
You should have a coach too.
That is why I want to invite you to join The Unstuck Group’s Fall Coaching Networks. They are designed to help lead pastors grow in community while learning how to grow their churches, increase their leadership capacity and best lead their teams along the way.
This fall we will offer 3 different networks:
In each, we invite you to register a group of two from your team (you plus one other senior leader). We’ve found churches are more successful at leading change when the senior leader has an ally. You’ll value having someone to collaborate with as you apply what you’re learning.
I am so excited to get to know the leaders doing these networks. There is limited space, and the deadline is August 23, so grab your spot soon!
I hope to see you there.
