I began leading classes for CoachInc:
Before coaching professionally:
I was a Pastor for 23 years, facilitating significant growth and transformation in the churches I served. My primary roles included: vision-casting, strategic planning, leadership development and spiritual formation. I was also responsible for leadership and organizational development in over 500 different faith communities.
My coaching practice:
My current coaching business includes a diverse group of professionals from the profit and non-profit sectors. Many of my current coaching clients include pastor's, rabbi's and priests. My primary focus is to empower today's spiritual leaders through coaching and coach training.
My vision is a "coach-filled" world in which people are listening deeply to one another, clarifying next steps, and mutually empowering each other throughout all of life. Leading classes at CoachU is one of the ways that I can support this vision.
The most unique quality of my leadership:
I enjoy creating a BIG vision and then making it become a reality. I am a very intuitive person and I love to laugh.
What I expect from the coaches on my calls:
My expectation is that together we will create a learning environment characterized by discussion, practice, curiosity and play.
My favorite benefit from leading classes:
I love being with an individual or a group when they have an "a-ha" (a major insight or new awareness) that opens up a whole new world of possiblities for them.
Feedback from students:
Val brings a wonderful humor to his classes. He creates a learning environment that encourages risk. He includes incredible examples during class that help facilitate a shift in learning and application.
