Community Life Coaches Speak at Zonta International Local Club

Chris and Carol Green answer questions about Life Coaching at Zonta Club meeting

Pennsylvania, USA  ----Community Life Coaches, Chris and Carol Green, were the guest speakers of the November (2018) session of the local Zonta International Club. The Greens were invited by its President, Elaine Weinert because they have been providing life coaching support for the staff and residents of a local women's shelter, which the Zonta Club supports on a regular basis.

"We had an amazing session with the Zonta Club of Harrisburg-Hershey," Carol commented, "The Club's president, Elaine Weinert, welcomed us with open arms and set the stage for us to express our passion for life coaching in under-served communities."

 Carol was the main speaker while Chris handled the technical (video) aspects of the presentation. Speaking from the title 'It's All About Life Coaching', Carol chronicled the couple's lives as Life Coaches, dating back to the 1990's when they were youth leaders in St. Louis, Mo.  She built the journey around their experiences with four women: Tiffany, Carlette, Traci and Mary (Carol's mother).

Then she carried the audience through their work with Pennsylvania Career Link and Shalom House Women's Shelter.  Afterwards, Chris joined her at the podium to answer questions about the finer points of Life Coaching, explaining how they differ from other models in their CARE-Ready Leadership approach and strategy.

"This was a wonderful evening with the awesome women of Zonta International", stated Chris Green, "They are working diligently to empower women and children all over the world. They support the efforts of Shalom House, which means they have been supporting our work there as well."

As the world's leading producers of CARE-Ready Life Coaches™, Chris and Carol Green teach and train community, government and education leaders, human service organizers, business visionaries, and neighborhood dreamers how to be much more effective by embracing the principles of CARE (Compassionate Accountability with Respect and Empathy) in their professional and personal lives. They LISTEN to people, LIFT people and LAUNCH people. Then they equip and empower them to do the same for others.

Many coaching, mentoring and community outreach programs employ what is known as a "deficit model" of working with people. That's where you focus on the problems (deficits) of a person, and then apply a set of pre-determined, cookie cutter steps and treatments to address their issues. The deficit-based model is what many well-meaning Helpers use, but it rarely works long-term, leaving Helpers wondering why their clients fail to break the cycles of addiction and recidivism.

However, CARE-Ready Life Coaching™ mirrors the principles found in the proven, Best Practice strategies of Strength-based, Solution-focused models. CARE-Ready life coaches are trained to connect with people in order to build a relationship/ partnership that empowers the client; thus allowing the client to discover the solutions that will work best for them.

Also, while many coaching programs focus on how to target potential high-paying affluent clients, and high-paying speaking opportunities, the Greens train, equip and empower Care-Ready Providers and Coaches™, who are willing to take on the most often overlooked people of society; those who live in under-served communities, who can least afford, but benefit the most from professional guidance.

As affiliate members and International Statesmen with iChange Nations™, Chris and Carol Green have partnered with United Graduate College and Seminary International to offer an accelerated, ministry-accredited life coaching certification program. Their collaborative purpose and mission has been, to offer leaders, working in under-served communities, high-quality tools that empower and equip them to be more effective in their humanitarian efforts.
