Your calling wasn’t supposed to lead to conflict and chaos. Your calling was very real, yet the qualities that drew you to it – qualities like compassion, altruism, and patience – seem to be working against you.
You’re not alone. And what you’re experiencing does not mean you chose the wrong career. There are real reasons why you and other purpose-driven leaders have these kinds of issues:
- Shouldering the blame for everything that goes wrong (no, it’s not all your fault).
- Difficulty getting members to pitch in, leaving a heavy burden on you.
- Poor results from those who do pitch in.
Once you understand those reasons, you can take control, re-ignite the spark that called you to purpose-driven work, and inspire your staff and members.
My name is Amy Kay Watson and I’ve helped purpose-driven leaders who felt much the way you do now. They were ready to give up. After working with me, they understood what was really going on and turned things around.
For example, after I led a recent retreat for a pastor and her congregation, she found people started stepping up, doing more, and realizing the church’s problems were not her fault. And through her one-on-one coaching with me, she felt her own inner light sparked.
What is Coaching?
In this video I introduce myself and explain how coaching with me is different from hiring a mentor, hiring an athletic coach, or hiring a therapist.
