There is so much to think about these days. For some there is too much time for thinking and too many people calling and Zooming into our lives. For some social distancing really feels like social isolation. Our Advanced Leadership Coaches want to help. If you would like to be connected to one of our trained leadership coaches for 1-1 individual coaching or group coaching, email .

If you already have a group that would benefit from a coach helping to guide the conversation, we can help! If you are looking for a group to share ideas and resources with, we will be creating those groups as folks express interest. If you need one person to focus on your wisdom, ask powerful questions, shift perspective, build an action plan and accountability then Advanced Leadership Coaching is here for you!



Academy of Artful Leadership

Artful Leadership bannerThe Academy of Artful Leadership helps gifted leaders continue to grow through hosted conversations around key themes in ministry, peer learning, and individual coaching. The outcome is greater clarity and calculated movement toward transformational congregational leadership.

The Academy utilizes a “coach approach” process, which means that instead of relying on instruction from a teacher or prescriptions from a consultant, a coach helps to mine the expertise and internal wisdom of congregational leaders. This “coach approach” process helps leaders discern the God-sized things that need to happen, develop a plan to get there, and celebrate with them when they do.
