What is coaching?

Coaching is a one-on-one relationship focused on life and leadership transformation. While it includes all the benefits of counseling, mentoring and accountability, coaching is more holistic. MCI's coaching engages the Holy Spirit and applies a systematic approach to achieve success in one's spiritual life, personal discipline, leadership advancement, optimum health and priority management.

Why get coached?

Christians are called to excellence in life and ministry. 1st Timothy 4:12 says to "...set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." Coaching provides a framework to assess, develop and grow these key areas. The outside perspective and direct approach from your coach will allow you to eliminate blind spots and receive expert counsel, direction and encouragement.

How does it work?

Your coaching begins with behavioral assessments, an introduction to coaching tools and a two-hour session with your coach. You will discuss goals, your current reality and develop key objectives for your experience. You will then participate in two, 30-minute calls each month.

Additionally, you may take advantage of onsite opportunities to supplement your one-one-coaching. From team building to strategic planning, your coach provide growth opportunities in all areas of life and leadership.

The Core Four

What is the Core Four?

The Core Four © is a sequence of disciplines that drive all of MCI’s coaching and consulting experiences. We believe sustainable progress toward life and leadership excellence can be had with focused and non-deviating commitment in these four areas.

By committing to each Core Four area in sequence, leaders find that they experience the efficiency, balance and productivity that they desire.

The Core Four components are:

Life Plan 

Life Plan:

Developing a Life Plan allows leaders to experience profitability across all areas of life. An effective Life Plan includes a vision for the key areas of life and clarifies one’s purpose, plans and commitments to those areas. Based on these convictions, leaders drive toward balance and whole-life profitability by taking the necessary steps to achieve their life account visions.

Life Plan 

Ministry Vision:

Creating a ministry vision allows leaders to clarify, own and communicate a clear plan for their ministry and organization. This process includes assessing current vision, solidifying core values, creating a purpose statement, developing a strategy and model, and unrolling a communication plan.

Life Plan 

Ministry Plan:

Once vision is clarified, a ministry plan will outline organizational plans, create actionable steps and mobilize the team to drive the ministry forward. Progress will happen as a leader answers – what will be accomplished, where improvement needs to happen, how to proceed and when the plan will be completed.

Life Plan 

Priority Management:

This discipline allows leaders to clarify what is really necessary to achieve their desired personal and professional goals. From time-blocking and calendar management, to making use of life’s margins, priority management allows the leader align his life with his convictions, and experience improved productivity, efficiency and morale.
