We have probably all experienced conversations that have shifted our thinking in a short time. The Transforming Conversations Course will enable you to have such conversations in your ministry and leadership.
This Course can help you to
Have better conversations in your work
Help others to have lightbulb moments
Have clearer outcomes from conversations
Equip others to be clear what their next steps are
As part of the Reaching New People in New Ways Project, we are equipping lay and ordained leaders with training in essential coaching skills to enable you to engage in transformational conversations within your church and fresh expression settings. The Transforming Conversations Coaching Course will equip you with the skills to develop those you lead and support in mission and ministry.
This Professionally Accredited Course is heavily subsidised by the Reaching New People project and our desire is that this will give you the necessary tools to come alongside learning communities, that are in the process of forming fresh expressions and new Christian communities. Support through facilitation of a learning communitiy (this need only be a small amount of time each term) will be incredibly helpful to those on the reaching new people journey. (please contact email@example.com if you wish to ask any further questions about this expectation).
Transforming Conversations Coaching Course is delivered by, 3D Coaching – a small, professional community of experienced coaches and trainers who model a learning culture of regular supervision and team development. They have worked with individuals and groups in all sectors including local, central and international government, the NHS, corporates, churches and charities. 3D was established in 1999 and is structured as a public benefit company.

This course can count as the first stage towards ICF Portfolio Accreditation
“Putting aside 4 working days is always a challenge, but often worth it just in terms of stepping back and gaining new perspective. However, the quality of teaching is very rarely as good as we received from 3D.
In the last week I have seen myself not full on coaching, but using the principles we learnt. I know you don’t need to know, but among other things this has lead to the best supervision with a colleague that we’ve had.
I suppose the nature of your work is that you never know it’s impact on Church and Kingdom. The impact is there and hugely positive. ” The Revd Lucy Davis, St Peter & St Paul with St Andrew, Flitwick
“An excellent course giving practical skills and a framework for coaching in many situations with training from a master coach. I have unhesitatingly recommended many of my team to take this course and commend it to those who are looking to increase their skill set in this area.” Revd Mike Jones, Vicar at St Mary’s Luton
“One of the most useful training courses I have ever attended. Beautifully presented and highly applicable.” Revd Charles Hudson, parish priest, St Albans Diocese.
“Transforming Conversations was the most usable and the highest quality training I have received in several years. I loved the practical nature of the training and being able to try things out straight away. It was so encouraging to see the journey of development as we applied the theory together over the course’s duration. Since finishing the course I have used the Coaching approach in both my Parish and as I mentor young people and other leaders. Seeing the ‘light bulb moment’, where I have facilitated new and transformational thinking, is unbelievably special. I would unreservedly recommend this course to anyone who wants their conversations to go up a gear.” Mrs Claire Banham
“The course has had an impact ranging from every day pastoral encounters, to chairing meetings or helping to coach people in more formal processes, I can’t speak highly enough regarding this course. Professionally delivered, and by far the most useful practical training I have had following ordination.” Revd Joe Pienaar, St Hugh’s, Lewsey, Luton
