3. What is coaching about?
Coaching with us is about a short-term connection with an expert about a specific ministry topic. Coaches do not provide counseling, long-term mentoring, jobs or financial assistance. Violation of this may result in closing your login access.
4. Who can be a coach?
Anyone can apply to be a coach. We are looking for Christian leaders with expertise in a particular field. If approved, you will be put on the website and others can find and connect with you directly about your expertise.
5. What is expected of a coach?
There is no required commitment to be a coach. If someone wants to connect with you, you will get a private message from Leading-Well with the information of the person wanting to get in touch. As a coach, you can decide whether you want to connect with that person. There is no expectation to respond to every request that you get. However, we ask that if you are a coach, that you make an effort to point each person who connects with you in the right direction for further help.
