Together We Thrive (TWT) Coaches have received training through the Coaching4Clergy program. Coaching4Clergy’s Professional Coach Training is an ACTP program (Accredited Coach Training Program through the International Coach Federation). TWT Coaches practice Deep Listening and ask Powerful Questions to help an individual or group to discover the insights they have within. Many of the TWT Coaches are working toward PCC (Professional Certified Coach) accreditation. Synod staff and the Together We Thrive Program Coordinator will consider the available coaches and recommend one or more with skills relevant to your needs.
