As I’ve shared with you in the past, I’ve had an amazing experience attending WBECS – the World Business and Executive Coach Summit. I highly recommend that you take a look at this year’s inspiring line-up and register for their free Pre-Summit classes. Again, I want to provide are my recommendations for you as a leader who develops others using a coach approach for:
- disciplemaking & church planting
- leading & developing teams
- coaching church planters & networks leaders
Registration is now open! Go here to see the full WBECS speaker line-up and secure your spot at no cost!
Each week leading up to the FREE Pre-Summit I highlight a session that might be of particular interest for you. Remember the Pre-Summit consists of 48 sessions and lasts four weeks. Week #1 is May 27th – May 31st (see previous week’s blog for my recommendations).
You can choose for yourself which ones you want to attend.
Following is the session I recommend for Week #2 June 3rd-7th; especially if you are working with teams in a cross-cultural context.
The summit starts on May 28th and you can still register for over 40 live online classes. They are all completely pitch-free and 100% value!
Go here to register for the complimentary Pre-Summit sessions before they fill up!
This year, WBECS will surprise you with a lot of new features. You can join panel discussions, interact with the speakers during live Q&A sessions and much more.
I truly believe that you are going to be impressed by what they have to offer. Which is why I recommend that you experience WBECS for yourself.
Leadership Effectiveness Profile
I love to share insights, resources and training opportunities with leaders who have a vision to increase their effectiveness.
As a leader, the quality of your leadership is your most valuable asset. That’s why I believe that constantly educating yourself is crucial for long-term fruitfulness. Since coaching is a tool that can help you empower your team, in disciplemaking, in developing church planters, in supporting pastors, etc. – I want you to be aware of a helpful online, FREE resource that is available to you.
You might know that I have attended WBECS – the World Business and Executive Coaching Summit – over the last couple of years… And their online classes have impacted the way I coach. I enjoyed learning the latest methodologies and connecting with a community of leaders taking a coach approach. Even though you may not be pursuing coaching as a vocation, this training can be helpful to develop your coaching expertise. I understand that you need to be selective with how you steward your time. That is why I have taken the time to vett the various offerings to recommend a few that might be relevant for you.
The Pre-Summit consists of 48 sessions and lasts four weeks. Week #1 is May 27th – May 31st. You can choose for yourself which ones you want to attend but I would suggest the two live coaching demos to see how world-class leaders take a coach-approach.
Here are the names of those sessions, linked to the bio of the respective leader modeling their competence:

Leadership Effectiveness Profile

Since 2005 I been in regular contact with Colin Noyes from Brisbane, Australia. He has been a friend, colleague and coach. His thoughts on discipleship and disciplemaking are worth considering especially in the post-modern culture we encounter on a daily basis today.

Have A Clear Knowledge of Where You Are As A Leader, And How To Get Better!
I’ve found one way to engage leaders in a developmental conversation is to ask them to assess themselves.
There are a number of excellent tools out there that do a great job, providing a reliable and valid baseline that leaders trust. One tool I’ve used with dozens of leaders is called the Leadership Effectiveness Profile. It helps a leader reflect on eight key areas that every leader utilizes as she/he leads a team.
When leader’s see their profile it causes them to pause!
To enhance this exercise, InFocus in partnership with Scrappy Leader has incorporated video to highlight each of the eight competencies in the Leadership Effectiveness Profile online course. The combination of the assessment with the videos is a solid resource to help a leader take the next step in their development. Ideally, the resource works best in the context of a coaching relationship.
