Are you ready to start using high-quality coaching skills in your work or ministry?

FOCOS provides high-quality and affordable coach training to help supervisors, team leaders, ministry directors, and others to implement effective use of coaching skills in their ministry and work roles. The 12 month online and on-site curriculum offers…

  • Opportunity to experience coaching for your own life and work
  • Immersion in a five day, hands-on, highly interactive on-site workshop introducing coaching and coaching skills
  • Teleclasses that build competencies as you begin to use coaching skills with others
  • Mentor Coaching that helps you troubleshoot and grow your skills

“I entered the FOCOS training a bit skeptical, to be honest. I left a believer in the tremendous effectiveness of the coaching relationship. I find that through the coaching relationship I can do almost anything God lays on my heart! I have had such a positive experience that I am now working with our Leadership Development and Human Resource staff to bring some coach training to our local organization of 120 national staff.” – FOCOS Europe 2015 Graduate
