Hi, I'm Dr. Keith E. Webb, founder of Creative Results Management. Since 2005, we've equipped Christian leaders to multiply their impact through coaching.
Let me share how we got started. For 20 years I lived and ministered in Japan, Indonesia, and Singapore. My vision was huge. Implementing it was frustrating. As a leader, I didn't feel I was effective at helping my teammates develop. I was too busy. When I did help I was too directive, just telling them what they should do.
One day God showed how I needed to change. Rather than being to quick to teach and advise, I began to ask powerful questions and listen. Jesus said, "But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you," John 14:26.
What I noticed was, the answers to my questions were the things that God had put in their hearts. By asking questions, I was drawing out what the Holy Spirit put in!
This practice developed into a process called The COACH Model®. I found that if I asked the right kind of questions and listened, people would find their own solutions, move forward, and develop new capabilities in the process.
I've since written a few books about this process including The COACH Model for Christian Leaders and Coaching In Ministry, and developed International Coach Federation-approved coaching programs. In fact, all of our coaching training is approved by the ICF as ACSTH training.
As one of the largest Christian training organizations focused on coaching, each year we train thousands of Christian leaders around the world to lead with practical coaching skills through our unique, experiential training programs.
I don't work alone. Our team of instructors are, above all else, experienced. They bring decades of ministry experience, personal mastery in coaching, and training excellence. Each is seasoned by the work they do around the world.
Our training incorporates a faith-based perspective to serve Christian leaders.
Our training incorporates the best of adult learning practices. Moving from instructor-focused, authoritarian instructional practices, we incorporate self-directed, communal, experiential learning. Lecture is kept at a minimum, while discussion, practice and application are maximized. The results are people who can actually coach.
If you're ready to multiply your ministry impact, consider coaching training with us.

One of the biggest challenges we face in ministry today is developing more leaders.
In this quick reference guide, Dr. Keith Webb outlines three significant differences between mentoring and coaching and how we can apply them in our ministry leadership today.
We have trained over 10,000 people from more than 350 organizations. Here are a few of them:
