You may have heard about life coaching, and about the transformational results that people are experiencing when they work with a life coach. But have you heard about Christian life coaching, and do you know what it all entails?
Hi, my name is Shane Hansen, and I am the Director/Manager of Shane Hansen, Christian Life Coach, LLC.
When I felt the Lord calling me to serve in a different capacity, to become a life coach, I wanted to be sure that I received the highest level of coach training available. As such, I wanted to find a program that was International Coach Federation (ICF) approved. Most importantly, I knew that if I was going to be taking on the awesome responsibility of serving as a life coach for people, that I absolutely needed to do so by using the most precious resource available to us (our Christian faith) so I specifically sought out training as a Christian-based life coach. Those two factors led me to the Christian Coach Institute (CCI), based in Charlotte, NC.
Through the CCI’s coach training program I received instruction on how to help clients approach topics using the Christian Coaching Model (image below). Using this model, I lead clients through the phases of Awareness, Vision, Strategies/Action-Steps, and Obstacles; all while Jesus Christ remains at the heart of the conversation.
I work with a wide range of clients on a variety of topics. My specialty, however, is helping Christian men/families on their journey as husbands, fathers, professional objectives/focus, leadership, and perspective. I also coach young adults, helping them to navigate the opportunities and challenges that they face during that season of life. It is such a rewarding honor to get to help clients experience the growth that they seek in their personal, professional, and spiritual aspects of life.
Upon graduating from the Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC) program, I started Shane Hansen, Christian Life Coach, LLC. I had focused my studies/career on leadership/business development, and in addition to my formal coach training I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree (BA) and Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA). I am a husband, father, entrepreneur, and experienced leader.
But it is not about me! Life coaching is all about the client, and their journey. Coaching is about listening, asking powerful questions, helping clients understand what they are thinking/feeling, helping them sort through the noise, and helping people get from where they are to where they want to be (and, in Christian life coaching, where God wants them to be). Life coaching is real, and it does work.
In fact, life coaching first started as business coaching for CEO’s and other business executives. These leaders were seeking an outside coach to serve as a sounding board, to help them clearly articulate and fully understand where they wanted to go with their vision, thoughts, and feelings associated with leading their companies, and to offer honest/straightforward feedback. The value associated with working with an “outsider”, their coach, to help bring clarity and focus, as well as an external source of accountability, proved to be so successful in the business world that people started applying the same model to other aspects in their personal lives. Christian life coaching takes it a step further (deeper), and intentionally includes the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit into the coaching process. With God all things are possible!
I would be honored to have an opportunity to meet with you for a no obligation, complimentary, initial consultation. These meetings are an excellent way for us to connect and get a feel for each other’s communication style. During this time I will also answer your questions about life coaching.
If you, or someone you love, is ready to take that next step towards a new day filled with meaning, perspective, achievement, and purpose — give me a call to get the conversation started. Don’t just survive, thrive! I look forward to talking with you soon!
Coach Shane is an International Coach Federation (ICF) trained life coach and graduate of the Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC) program from the Christian Coach Institute (Charlotte, NC). He also holds a Bachelor’s Degree (BA) and Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA).
