Sustainable Leadership Coaching
This year-long track is a strategic approach to developing or regaining a healthy personal foundation for leadership. Whether you are jumping into a new leadership role or have been in the same seat for years, one thing is certain— leadership, with all of the good, can also be lonely and overwhelming. No matter if you are a leader in business, church, non-profit work or at home, our aim is to help you become the flourishing leader you’re called to be.

- Clarify and articulate their core/chore balance
- Identify unnecessary distractions and hurdles
- Eliminate overwhelm
- Identify and navigate organizational and personal challenges
- Develop useful systems of personal development
- Lead from a place of vulnerability and courage
- Sharpen communication and interpersonal skills
- Learn practices of self-insight
- Develop a sustainable rule of life
- Monthly 90-minute sessions
- Two 60-minute sessions with group/leadership cohort
- Once-monthly between-session access to coach
- Two to three core wiring assessments

What’s the difference between coaching and counseling?
While both are helpful resources for personal wellness, coaching focuses on strategic, forward-moving action to reach individual and team potential and goals while counseling focuses on an individual’s overall peace of mind by addressing past challenges and hurts that affect one’s current mental and emotional health.
Who can benefit from coaching?
Simply put, everyone! No matter your vocation, life-season or daily responsibilities, we all need a little extra motivation, perspective or support to keep moving forward from time to time.
What happens during a coaching session?
Coaching sessions generally involve an interactive relationship of open, meaningful questions by the coach surrounding the topic or focus the client wishes to discuss—all with the purpose of reaching deeper understanding and clarity towards informed and meaningful client action steps.
How long is a coaching session?
Winning at Home offers 60-minute and 90-minute coaching sessions depending on client preference. We also offer 3, 5 or 8 session packages as a helpful way to establish rhythm and build momentum.
How do I prepare for a coaching session?
While not required, we find that coaching sessions are most effective when a client has spent time prior to session considering what specifically they wish to talk about in the session.
Does my insurance cover coaching?
Because coaching does not specifically treat areas of mental or physical health, it is not covered by insurance.
How are coaches trained and what are their qualifications?
All Winning at Home Coaches have received thorough training and certification from accredited programs of the International Coach Federation, the gold standard for coaching. All coaches adhere strictly to ICF best practices and code of ethics and are committed to ongoing training and personal development.
How often would I meet with a coach and overall, how many sessions should I expect?
Because the client is always in the driver’s seat in a partnership, the pace, rhythm and session length is all up to you. You can opt for meeting on a session-by-session basis, or take advantage of diving into one of our 3,5 or 8-session packages. And because everyone is different, we offer the choice of 60 or 90-minute sessions for you to choose from.
What are some of the reasons people meet with a coach?
Coaching is all about gaining clarity, shifting gears, developing momentum or engaging areas where one is stuck, circling or overwhelmed. So whether you are in leadership, a parent or spouse or wish to discover and learn more about who you are and how you operate best in this world, a coaching partnership would be a helpful fit.
Can coaches help marriages in crisis?
Absolutely! Some of our coaches have been helping couples navigate marriage challenges and crisis points for years. And they come with helpful tools for you to learn and use over and over again in your marriage. Some topics include: Interpersonal Communication, Boundaries, Sexuality, Family Dynamics, Changing Life-Seasons and Transitions, Sudden Crisis or Grief, Developing a Marriage and Family Vision and Mission and more.
What can I expect from my coach(es)?
You can expect empathy, compassion and a loving partnership that pushes you beyond comfort to your potential. Each coach commits to providing a faithful presence of empathetic and active listening, insightful question asking and strategic action planning.
What if my spouse is hesitant to engage with a coach along with me?
Because we understand that there can be hesitancy surrounding “getting help”, our coaches are prepared to provide an initial “jumpstart” conversation just to help potential clients get to know the coach and better understand the process to make sure it’s the best fit possible.
What outcomes can I expect when being coached?
We always say: In coaching, you get out what you put in. But as the client, if you come willing to engage with purpose, no matter the coaching focus, you will experience an output of greater clarity, focus and empowerment to set plans into motion.
Is there a coaching contract I need to sign before I’m coached?
All clients will be asked to read and sign a coaching agreement that will outline the terms and duration of the coaching partnership. While this is a sign of the commitment of both client and coach, clients are always given the freedom to opt-out of the partnership under the rare circumstance that they are unsatisfied or find the coaching unhelpful to them.
Will a coach respect my beliefs and not try to push their agenda on me?
Yes. While all of our coaches adhere to Winning at Home’s focus of providing Christ-centered care, we respect and honor the beliefs of all of our clients.
Who could I talk to if I want to make an appointment or have more questions about coaching?
If you’d like to make an appointment or talk with someone about your specific questions regarding coaching, you may call the Winning at Home office to talk with Brad, our Coaching Director or email him at email@example.com.
Can I be coached over the phone, online or face-to-face?
Because of the unique nature of coaching, we are able to provide in person, online or phone coaching world-wide.
Is a coaching relationship confidential?
Yes. Our coaches adhere to the same level of confidentiality that any of our WAH counselors do, following HIPPA guidelines for client confidentiality and parental consent for clients under the age of 18.
