Picture4                        Picture5

The Everything DiSC™ personality profile and coaching preference summary is a self-inventory that allows people to discover how they want to give and receive feedback and advice, as well as shows a snapshot of how individuals can have effective communication in relationships. The preferences in the DiSC™show participants both how they want to be coached and how they can be more effective as a coach. It consists of four preferences, each with its own strengths and liabilities: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness.

The Dominance preference describes coaches who like to be in control, are direct communicators, focus on results, and think about the possibilities. They are willing to take on new challenges or risks, set goals, and work hard to achieve them.

The Influence preference describes coaches who are outgoing, enthusiastic, optimistic, and spontaneous. As coaches, they are excellent communicators, can be very persuasive, and are comfortable as the center of attention.

The Steadiness preference describes coaches who are accommodating, humble, tactful and even-tempered. As coaches, they are patient, thorough, and like to make everyone in a group comfortable.

The Conscientiousness preference describes coaches who are analytical, precise, systematic and hardworking. They are careful to think things through, experts at analyzing and solving problems, and careful and diplomatic communicators.



The Coach Approach for LIfe and Ministry by CG™ workshop is your opportunity to learn and practice foundational coaching skills in a two-day accelerated program.

You'll discover your natural coaching preference and how to adapt it to be more effective. You'll learn an easy-to-use coaching model and will have numerous opportunities to practice it over the two days with other participants using real-life scenarios.

Learning–just like a coaching conversation–isn’t complete without a plan to act. You’ll create a personal action plan that focuses on outcomes and how you will apply new skills in your role. You will have an opportunity for an individual practice coaching conversation with the facilitator as follow-up after the session in a Group Mentor Coaching call.
