Why do you offer coach training?
What does 
coaching look like?

​There are a couple reasons we chose Anchored.

In the Bible, anchors are meta-phors for God and faith.  There is great encourage-ment in knowing we serve a God Who is so very steady. Encouragement garners hope, and in Hebrews 6, we read, "Hope is the anchor of the soul."

Being "anchored in Christ" is one of the microskills of exceptional Christian coaches. When we are securely rooted in Him, we can objectively listen to those we coach, and trust the movement of the Holy Spirit at the same time.

Coaching is very much a one-sided conversation. It is all about you!

With guidance from your coach, you are the one who determines the agenda for each coachnig session. A few days before your scheduled meeting, you receive some 
questions to help you prepare the time. That prework helps you and your coach to make the most of your coaching time together.

Normally, appointments last approximately 50 minutes; the frequency of meetings are determined by the breadth of what the leader wants to achieve. The pattern may range from weekly to monthly sessions. (When too much time passes between, the coachee is not as likely to achieve his or her goal.)

Meetings may take place in person, by phone, or internet video.
Why the name, "Anchored"?
That answer is simple! If we want to see every Christian leader have access to exceptional, affordable coaches, we need to ensure they are available.

Anchored offers coach training at two levels:

Coaching 101 is for anyone in any kind of a relationship: supervisory, parent, friends, teacher, etc. Incorporating basic coaching skills into your relationships is a game changer!

Our Coach Certification Process is designed for men and women who want to take their training deeper, honing their skills until they become exceptional. Our certified coaches may be in formal coaching relation-ships, serve as coach-mentors, or provide training to others

You can learn more about both here.
You said you won't tell me what you think I should do. So, what am I paying you for? 
What type of training does Anchored provide?
Anchored uses the "Discovery" method of coaching. We won't tell you what to do, but we'll ask you questions. And then we'll listen, and ask more questions.You'll have an opportunity to explore whatever topic you choose...to a level you never expected to uncover.

When you are given the time to hear yourself think (quite literally), you'll be amazed at the solutions the Lord has already put inside you through past experience, training, reading, conversations, etc.
You just need a coach to draw it out of you.
What if I still have more questions?
We love question-askers! (Ever consider becoming a coach?!) We are happy to tell you what you need to know. 
Send  an email to Jenni Bartling to have your questions answered or request a time for a phone call.
What is the cost to have an Anchored Coach?

​Ultimately, our goal is to see every Christian leader have access to exceptional, yet affordable, coaching.

Contact us, and we can discuss costs and possible ways to cover to cover them.

What if I can't afford to invest in a coach?
Do you work with a specific denomination?
We are creating an application for Anchored Coaching subsidies.

We believe every ministry leader needs a coach, but know not all leaders are prepared to receive coach-ing. The completed question-naire will allow us to recognize the men and women who understand the value of coaching, and are eager to use the tool to accomplish their goals.
We want to see every Christian ministry and non-profit succeed. The principles of coaching are transferable throughout God's Kingdom

Our coaches roster is filled with Baptists, Anglicans, and Pentecostals.  We've worked with leaders in our own denoms, as well as Presby-terians, Catholics, Seventh-Day Adventists, Methodists and members of the Salva-tion Army.

We sincerely look forward to developing relationships with more denominations.
