Embracing Diversity and Culture in Coaching Multi-Track Approach: Exploring, Advancing, Credentialing
As missionaries, ministry leaders, and coaches, we are called to
a world of expansive cultural diversity. Coaches best serve our clients when we are aware of and manage our own biases from a space of deep awareness, consideration, and appreciation of how we are alike and how we are different as humans.
As coaches, we see how critical it is for those coaching culturally diverse people to understand and be able to leverage cultural differences throughout the process to effectively benefit the client.
In this year’s coach camp, through group discussion, coaching interactions, practical resources, and shared stories, we will learn to recognize and increase coaching skills with increased cultural awareness.
