Become an effective coach and MAXIMISE YOUR leaderSHIP

The Elim Training Coaching Academy seeks to train existing Elim leaders with the necessary skills to inspire, challenge, and journey alongside other leaders in the Elim Movement in order help them achieve all that God has intended for them.

The Coaching Academy provides you with the biblical basis of coaching, explores definitions and case studies including the GROW model of The Coaching Process, how to ask good questions and ultimately equip you to be a better leader as well as coach others.

The Coaching Academy will help you to turn your leadership from focusing on self into developing others as an intentional long-term strategy.
