Visionary Leadership Project

Lay people from Oregon-Idaho and Pacific NW Conferences
Wesley Homes in Des Moines, WA. was  the gathering place for the spring Visionary Leadership Project retreat. Mary Huycke, professional coach, led about 20 of us in Leading Like a Coach. These coaching skills are useful for deep listening in any context. Is communication an issue in your congregation? Coaching can help untangle the knots between a thought and a statement. Does your church ever hit a wall of immoveable opinions? Through coaching we may be able to remove a barrier. Sometimes new paths are opened. Sometimes new understanding is created.
