Coaching helps people become more efficient and effective in their life and leadership so they can empower others to fully live out their calling.
Coaching is about you.
Your goals, your learning, and your growth.
Coaching is an ongoing conversation that empowers you to fully live out your calling – in your life and profession. The goal of coaching is to develop a person who is able to more effectively reflect, correct, and generate new learning. It’s learning new ways to learn, listening to your heart, and taking action to reshape your life around that learning.
You are the expert on your life. Your coach will listen, ask questions, encourage you, challenge you a bit, and always remain supportive. All to assist you in discovering insights and taking the next steps.
Each session you will determine 1-3 actions that you will step into before the next session. You may be surprised how quickly you progress toward your goals.
We all know that changing old habits and thought patterns are difficult. We recognise these patterns and will support you as you change and grow holistically across your life.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Christian coaching?
“Christian coaching is an ongoing conversation that empowers a person or team to fully live out God’s calling.”
The goal of Christian coaching is to develop people to more effectively reflect, correct and generate new learning. It is learning new ways to learn, listening to your heart and Holy Spirit and taking action to reshape your life around that learning.
The coaching relationship produces insights, greater personal awareness, new or modified behaviours, actions, and ultimately results that satisfy the client.
What is supervision?
At its simplest, Supervision is a forum where supervisees review and reflect on their work in order to do it better. Practitioners bring their actual work-practice to another person (individual Supervision), or to a group (small group or team Supervision), and with their help review what happened in their practice in order to learn from that experience. Ultimately, Supervision is for better-quality service. In a relationship of trust and transparency, supervisees talk about their work and through reflection and thoughtfulness learn from it and return to do it differently. (Carroll, 2007)
What is the difference between coaching and supervision?
The supervisor relationship is often formal and based on higher to lower position and authority, i.e. supervisor down to worker. In the coaching relationship, it is the worker’s goals that are at issue within an (often) non-reporting relationship. A coach primarily seeks to help the client reach their goals, while simultaneously growing the client’s capacity.
How can a coach help?
A professional coach/supervisor possesses talents, techniques, skills and tools that support the client in making the right changes, with greater ease and lasting effectiveness. They assist the client by helping them to:
- Recognise their strengths and assets
- Uncover the unconscious thoughts and beliefs that hold them back
- Explore new perspectives
- Gain clarity on values and life purpose
- Identify and end self-defeating habits and patterns
- Clarify goals and create action plans to achieve them
- Learn from mistakes and failures
- Discover what they truly desire

“Arrow is the kind of professional development that all professional development really should be – personal development. As a teacher and leader, the person I am matters more than the techniques I have or the books I’ve read. It’s nice to go to a ‘PD’ and feel changed, rather than just temporarily enlightened.”
“I thought I was coming to a professional development program, however it is so much more than that. This program has the potential to change the trajectory of your life.”
“Arrow Leadership is a pivotal experience. It asks for the participant’s courage. Courage to scale heights and plumb depths of character rarely traversed in lives harried along in the currents of life.”
“Over the past 12 years of leadership and over 20 years of teaching, the Arrow Leadership program has been by far the most insightful and has made the greatest impact for positive change.”
