A new adventure

In 1997 I was introduced to the concept of the Leader Coach.  It was in the context of business and the person who gave me a book and talked to me about it was a senior executive in business.  I didn’t see the connection frankly, and now I wonder what “in me” might be different if I had thought more about coaching, had given it some attention?

In 2005 I was invited to attend TSA’s Executive Leadership Development Program.  That brought me again into the world of the Leader Coach.  I was intrigued and this time the concept was one I began to embrace by reading and learning what I could.  In 2007 I was invited to join the “Train the Trainer program” and again I was loving the challenge and the learning.

Time has moved along and the challenge of leadership has only become greater…so I came to the conclusion that I would like to engage a coach for myself.  My friend David pointed me to a friend of his and so I’ve been able to engage a very generous offer which will give me monthly coaching.

So the adventure begins – I’m off this week to spend a couple of days with my coach and to explore this new relationship.  As I’ve reflected on this I see the hand of God at work around me – providing for me in a way I could have never thought possible.

Here’s my prayer – from Psalm 139

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.

See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

As I go I’ll share some of the insights I gain in the journey.
