Coaching Mentorship with David Jacob Smith

January 13, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - April 6, 2020 @ 9:30 pm


My passion as a coach trainer is to equip and impart my heart for building and developing people using the coaching model. One of the best ways I know how to do that, beyond training in the process and skills of coaching, is to mentor others through a process of deliberate practice with feedback, utilizing coaching skills in real life coaching conversations.

Coaching is a skill which is best learned through practice and feedback. As pointed out by Cal Newport in his book, Deep Work, outstanding performance isn’t a result of natural talent, but rather hard work in the form of deliberate practice. He goes on to define deliberate practice as “practice designed to improve a specific skill using intense focus, repetition and continuous feedback. Deliberate practice is cognitively demanding, requires intense concentration, and cannot be done with distraction.”

Beginning January 13, 2020, I am starting another 13-week Coaching Mentorship class. This class will held to a maximum of 12 participants. Having a basic foundation in coaching is required and critical for participants to gain the maximum from this class. So, to qualify for this class participants must have successfully completed 101 and 102 training workshops offered by Bethel Coaching, or the online 100 course, Foundations in Christian Life Coaching.


  • One, 2 hour Orientation session where the atmosphere will be set for the class
  • Twelve weekly 2 and a half hour sessions consisting of two, 30 min coaching sessions each followed with a debriefing session
  • Live coaching sessions around real life issues participants identify they wished to be coached around
  • Each participant will coach twice, be coached twice, observe and offer feedback for 16 other sessions
  • Focus will be on core coaching competencies as recognized by ICF (International Coaches Federation)
  • Emphasis will be on developing people utilizing transactional and  transformational coaching
  • Time for Q and A around the coaching process, skills, and related topics
  • Receiving more of David’s heart for people and the coaching process
  • Weekly sessions to be held in David’s home
  • Satisfies all six hours of mentor coaching required for certification with Bethel Coaching
  • A great deal at $499. (Cost includes course handouts)
