How To Make 2013 Your Best Year Yet

At the end of each year I review the year and take time to plan the coming year with God. I've done this for many years now and always feel energized, motivated and inspired as a result. If you want to make sure you actually achieve what you believe the Lord has put on your heart to do you might want to follow my example.

You'll find the detailed coaching guide towards the end of this email.

Is the Lord calling you to coach?

My passion is to get people coached and to train people just like you to become more effective people helpers. Christian coaching isn't complicated and you can learn how to be an effective coach in just 10 weeks. I hope you'll prayerfully consider joining us for the next training.

If you answer yes to any of these questions then you might want to seriously consider getting equipped to more effectively help the people the Lord sends your way.

  • Do people seek you out for advice?
  • When they need a listening ear do they turn to you?
  • Would you liked to be equipped to help them more breakthrough the things that holding them back?

Life coach training isn't just for people who want to set up business as a life coach. If you're a minister, or small group leader, or if you teach, or work with people pastorally,

This training will equip you to help the people in your care to change and grow so that they can become who God intended them to be and take hold of what He has for them.

If you start training this month you can be a qualified life coach by April!

Here is what Catriona said about the training:

This is an excellent course - extremely comprehensive, well structured and very well taught.

Lynne is an excellent, motivating and affirming teacher who encourages her students to give of their best in the safe and enjoyable environment of the taught part of the course.

The individual coursework is interesting, challenging, and has been life changing - I have a better understanding of myself, and it has completely changed the way I listen to, engage with and encourage other people.

Having completed the course, I now have the structure and theoretical framework to work as a life coach, plus a host of valuable resources to access. I highly recommend this training"

I have openings for the class beginning on 16th January. If the day and time doesn't work for you, contact me and I'll see if I can schedule a class at a time that will suit your schedule.

Don't miss this opportunity to master the skills you need to help people have breakthroughs!

Here's what another one of my students had to say about the training:

"I completed the program in April 2012 and feel equipped to begin a Christian Coaching practice. The materials are very thorough, and the program is paced nicely. I did the convenient individual sessions which worked best for my schedule. For the money, I got quality time with Lynne per week, inspiring audio and web training, and support resources -- such as client questionnaires and sample contracts for my practice.

The icing on the cake was the marketing resources, and the professional contacts that Lynne recommended as continued education. Lynne is a great mentor, as she herself is a successful coach and business person, and honorable woman of God. I highly recommend Lynne Lee and Breakthrough Academy to any Christian interested in becoming a life coach." Debbie USA
