  • The Wrong Goal

    20/07/2022 Duração: 18min

    In today’s episode of the Christian Coaching School Podcast, Dr. Leelo Bush takes on how to avoid pursuing the wrong goals, how to identify if you are on the right or wrong path, how to course correct, and how to help others choose the right path. [01:08] Fear of uncertainty [02:37] Are we chasing the right goal? [06:06] Importance of having goals [07:28] 3 signs you are chasing the wrong goal [12:44] How to set the right goal Choosing Faith Over Uncertainty It’s not unusual for people to find themselves afraid to set goals due to a fear of uncertainty, not knowing that God has a destined plan already planned out for them. The moment we are born, God already made a unique path for each one of us to follow. This path was made in reflection of His love for His creation and fulfillment of His purpose. Fearing uncertainty should not stop people from crafting their goals as the outcome of how you get to your goal was already predetermined by God. Taking a step back and praying for God’s guidance will aid in overco

    Today Dr. Leelo Bush shares the unique storytelling gifts of Dani Johnson to create a deeper understanding of talent and abilities. The goal is to understand one’s God-given gifts and by doing so, increasing our confidence in what we can accomplish.

While some are gifted with many talents and others with just one, the important lesson one needs to take away from this is how well can one utilize their gifts. The idea of fear, rejection, and failure are some of the driving factors to why individuals fail to shine with their God-given abilities.

[23:54] Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and hypnosis [26:21] Uncompromising values and faith   The error of combining faith and worldly methods As a young believer in her 20s, Dr. Leelo thought it made sense to take the best parts of both coaching practices and apply them. But this only resulted in frustration, for Dr. Leelo could not progress until she understood the divine truth: that all answers can ultimately only come from God. Secular coaching encourages people to believe in what feels natural. All teachings are equal. There is no one right way to do things. This line of thinking is dangerous, leading us down a path of moral relativism.    Spirit-led coaching, market

  • Episode 2 - How To Create An Emotion Adjustment

[03:27] Different types of negative emotions. [07:02] Where do emotions come from? [09:39] How to create emotion adjustments.   Identifying Negative Emotions There are four main categories of negative emotions: fear, anxiety, disgust, and anger. Uncomfortable feelings can rob us of our quality of life, steering us away from what God has in store for our lives. We’ve gotten used to feeling down, frustrated, and offended because we attribute them as natural reactions to life circumstances. Instead of ignoring our emotions, we should take them as warning signs. Letting these feelings fester will lead to more problems later on.   Adjust Your Emotions Here are some tips on how to dispel negative emotions. The first is to challenge the validity of what you’re feeling. Our present emotions do not always reflect the truth. Try to think of instan

  • EPISODE 9 - Stop Missing Opportunities

    07/07/2016 Duração: 16min

    How many times have you seen this happen? A new product or invention comes to market and someone says, "Hey, that was my idea!" "Great ideas are a dime a dozen but implementation is priceless." says Mary Kay Ash, the late founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics.  Ideas are opportunities.  And even when negative events happen, opportunities are created by them that otherwise might not exist.  We just need to look for them. Just look at history.  Most people remember the Great Depression in the United States as a miserable time for most folks. BUT, those who looked for the opportunity, got ideas and implemented them, made a fortune.  In fact, that was a time more millionaires than ever before were created in the United States. I was blessed to be mentored by one of them, the late John Galbreath, who was a commercial real estate development mogul in Columbus, Ohio.   You’ll hear me talk about him from time to time because he shared great wisdom with me that I live by to this day.  He was in his late 80s when he mentored

  • EPISODE 8 - How To Coach Deeply

    28/06/2016 Duração: 23min

    Today we are going to talk about a skill that is really more about what we don’t do, than what we do.  In order to coach deeply, we need to hold the space for our client. When we coach in this way, it may appear to take longer to achieve results at times, but the results are far deeper and longer lasting because the client was deeply involved in achieving their outcome. Holding space in my view, is about doing less rather than more, in order to empower your client.  And coming up, I will explain how to do this as well as what not to do. When my students first begin coach training, they are so excited that they will be able to guide people to success.  They look forward to giving good, solid advice and help solve their client’s problems.  At first glance, that sounds really good.  The problem is that in order for your client to get the best results, they themselves need to arrive at the answers and we are not there to judge them, fix them or try to manipulate the outcome.  Because we are Christian coaches, and

  • EPISODE 7 – Interview with Karen Federighi, featured on NBC and Upcoming Movie

    13/06/2016 Duração: 52min

    Thank you for joining me for an extraordinary episode today. On occasion you will hear personal interviews with those I believe, can add great value to your life as well as your coaching, and in this case also, counseling practice. I recently had an opportunity to do an in-person interview with my guest, Karen Federighi, in Naples, Florida. Since we were not in a studio and were fortunate to find a somewhat quiet public room in a hotel there, you may still hear occasional local sounds.  But thanks to expert audio editing by Evan and Simply Beautiful Media, those will be kept to a bare minimum. Karen has been featured in an NBC news report and when you hear dates, times and locations mentioned in this show, please know that this information has already been vetted and released in major network broadcasts. In addition, Karen will appear in an upcoming Hollywood-produced, full-length documentary because of her experiences, due out in July of this year. When I first saw Karen, she was having breakfast at the hote

    31/05/2016 Duração: 26min

    Let’s talk about how to get speaking gigs as well as how to get paid for speaking. You need to get in front of those who are hungry for your message. This is the third and final episode in this series on public speaking training and I have a LOT of hands-on, actionable content, lots of resources and links as well as tips for you. Whatever your area of expertise, you need to package it so that it appeals to an audience who is looking for that information. If there is no audience for it whatsoever, you need to develop a new area of expertise. You can find these areas by searching Google or looking online to see what is selling. You topics must match the needs of your target audience. It will help if you are or can become an expert in your niche. Event hosts tend to prefer specialists over generalists. Connecting with the right people will let the public know of your expertise and your availability. It's also a very good way to get referrals. Word-of-mouth is very powerful. Always be courteous, enthusiastic, and

    24/05/2016 Duração: 26min

    Welcome back. I hope the previous episode inspired you to do more public speaking. I think once you have a system down for how to prepare and present, your confidence will skyrocket. Today we will continue training on this topic. Today we are continuing with Part 2 on the topic of public speaker training, dealing with you as a presenter, your content and your audience. Last time we talked about the importance of preparation and how to prepare. As a review… we talked about our attitude, skills and preparation. We discussed the importance of opening impact and how to craft it. The content itself has 3 parts. The introduction, the body and the conclusion. With your INTRODUCTION your audience gets to know who you are, why you're qualified to speak to them, and that THEY are going to benefit you’re your presentation. Here you set the scene by telling your audience what you are going to tell them. Within the BODY, you will organize your core material into key points - remember, keep it to four or five main points.
