THE MOVIE OF YOUR LIFE

Before I was in full time ministry, I provided management coaching to corporate leaders. I helped people who had been newly promoted into senior roles to develop the skills to be a success. I provided my clients with an analysis of current strengths & weaknesses and then we developed a plan to help them grow. One topic that we covered was the power of thoughts.
