How Religion Impacts Coaching (and Vice Versa) with Jody Moore

amanda walker business life coach

I’ve noticed that there exists a belief that coaching and religion do not support each other and/or aren’t collaborative in nature.

From my perspective, this could not be further from the truth.  I decided to invite a guest on the show to dive deeper into this discussion who is heavily rooted in her faith and uses it directly inside her coaching. This week’s guest Jody Moore is an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She felt guilty for not loving the role of being a mother and wife and turned to life coaching for help. The transformation she experienced not only helped her at work and at home, but it also strengthened her testimony of Christ leading her to dive into learning the tools of coaching and to leave her position as a corporate leadership coach to launch her own coaching practice.

amanda walker business life coachIn this episode, Jody and I talk about getting clarity on who you want to serve. There is a lot of fear of rejection in gaining that clarity, but Jody has found that, so we discuss her journey toward that.

Can we talk about religion and coaching?

There is sometimes a model operating that believes these two worlds can’t come together. Why is that? 

Jody beautifully talks about how she has made it work for her, aligning her personal values with her coaching practice.

We also break down the 3 legged stool of “success” as a coach.  These 3 legs are:

  1. Your clients are succeeding.
  2. Your business is getting what it needs (revenue).
  3. You have the life you want (income + time +balance).

If all 3 aren’t balanced, the stool falls over and you are not successful the way you’ll want to be.

Heya, I’m Amanda!

Coaching changed my life.

Coaching is in my blood. I became a coach for the 1st time at 15 when I coached 4-5 year old boys in a pee-wee basketball league. I then coached the hardest crowd ever as a high school teacher and coach, then added to my coaching resume Level 1 CrossFit Coach, Precision Nutrition Coach, and now Certified Master Life Coach, NLP and hypnotherapy practitioner. I have combined my 25 years of coaching into this program to help you become a better coach.
