I met author Keith Webb several years ago at a Michael Hyatt Conference. He shared the backstory of his book The COACH Model for Christian Leaders, about his journey as a missionary-leader in Asia and lessons he’d learned along the way to writing the book. Really fascinating stuff! Well, how often do you meet a guy who’s written a book, right?
So, I went home and read it right away. I’m glad I did!
I discovered how his coaching model could take my skills to a new level, and how it had the potential to revolutionize my mentoring and leadership.
I also heard about his week-long workshops in Seattle and Atlanta, but ...
… like learning to play golf – when I’ve had the money I haven’t had the time, and vice versa. That is, until I heard about his online Coaching Workshop for Christian Leaders.
This affordable, live, online training course promised to equip me with powerful coaching skills through practical training and interactive exercises, all from the comfort of my laptop and earbuds.
Lessons such as:
- How to listen actively so others feel you understand them.
- How to ask powerful questions that initiate a change of thinking.
- How to generate feedback that avoids defensiveness.
- How to design action steps that will actually be accomplished.
- How to follow-up to increase learning and accountability.
Sounds good, ‘eh?
I attended the virtual workshop in April with 17 other students and two instructors. The interactive program was facilitated over Zoom video and had lots of practice built in. It was not a lecture.
The two expert instructors were based in Florida and The Netherlands, and the 17 other men and women were in the U.S. and five other countries. It was a Pivotal learning experience. Yes, with a capital P.
While the learnings are still taking root, I’m happy to say that I can see my clients making faster, more sure-footed progress. THAT’S what it’s all about, isn’t it? I’m grateful for the Coaching Workshop and highly recommend it to you.
If this sounds like a sales pitch for Keith Webb’s training, well – it is – and while we are not affiliated here’s the deal:
Mentoring and coaching are the central activities of my mission: To take the message of sobriety, recovery and freedom to all men who still struggle.
Since I can personally reach a limited number of all men, I spread the word about valuable opportunities like this to as many other leaders as possible. That way, all of us can reach our worlds more effectively with the life-changing messages we carry. Get it?
If you share my passion for coaching and mentoring – never mind your industry or mission – and if you sense that your skills could use an uplift, check-out the affordable and high-value Coaching Workshop for Leaders. You’ll be glad you did!

The Coaching Workshop changed the way I think about personal interactions. I used to think I had to fix everyone and everything. Now I have the mindset of being a guide and coach rather than a fixer.”– David Pitt, Pastor in Brisbane, Australia
