Thursday Morning (9:00 am – 12:00 noon) – You may select one of the following:
Choice #1 – 10 Coaching Tools: Growing Your Practice and Transforming Lives
Old Tools will not work in new times and understanding the right marketing strategies for a vibrant life coaching practice is essential to your success. Millions of people are talking about the importance of having a coach, so why do so many not have full schedules? It can be frustrating if you were never trained in how to effectively map out a personalized game plan to focus your efforts on building connections to people who need your expertise. If you are tired of waiting for the phone to ring and ready to fulfill your calling and purpose as a life coach, this workshop will provide practical tools to help you get started, grow, and impact more lives.
Choice #2 – Emotional Intelligence: Cornerstone of Effective Coaching
In this highly interactive and actionable workshop, you will be empowered by insights and best practices gathered from Emotional Quotient (EQ) scholarship and Biblical EQ research. You will discover how EQ skill development is applicable across all five generations of clients through engagement in self-selected small group work and peer coaching to help share best practices. Participants will learn strategies on how to create a 90-day plan to build muscle memory around the critical EQ skills that are central to your coaching success.
Choice #3 – Leadership: Always the Problem and Always the Answer
Leaders rarely act in a vacuum. Followers are watching and often take their cues from the actions and language of their leaders. When it comes to organizations, churches, movements or even whole nations, the decisions a senior leader makes can be a tremendous positive and productive force or in some cases, result in chaos and uncertainty. This workshop will focus on tried-and-true principles of leadership that will inspire you to use your influence for maximum impact in the Kingdom of God and as you coach others. Real life stories of success and failure will provide a context to “finish well” and fulfill God’s calling in one’s life journey.
Choice #4 – Transforming Lives at the Speed of Thought: Clinically Proven Tools to Expand Your Coaching Practice
This workshop offers powerful insights with proven, biblically based tools that were developed over 17 years of private clinical practice and have helped thousands of people. Ten root-source Christlike thinking characteristics will be discussed, along with rapid learning solutions and overcoming client encumbrances such as self-doubt, self-defeating behaviors, and hypersensitivity, which can further lead to fears, anxiety, and much more. The Equipping Profile™ motivates clients with “speed of thought” techniques for rapid healing, providing transformational results and referrals to grow your life coaching practice.
Choice #5 – Blended Not Broken: A Model for Coaching Blended Families
Tim Smith & Christie Meldrim
Over 100 million Americans today have some kind of a step relationship. Blended families are everywhere and yet, we rarely get the perspective of people who have been part of this dynamic. For far too long, the blended family has been characterized as a “broken” family and something less than ideal. The local church has also struggled to find meaningful or relevant long-term ministry solutions beyond basic divorce care and grief recovery. In this workshop, we will provide a solid framework for those who coach blended families, as well as practical tools to help these families grow and become vibrant and productive.
Thursday Afternoon (1:30 pm – 4:30 pm) – You may select one of the following:
Choice #1 – Life Recovery: Repurposed and Forgiven
We have all heard it said that failure is not final, but for too many, it actually is. Every time we walk with a person who is broken by failure, we need to help them find the right path back to the calling and purpose God created them to fulfill. And when we do it well, we lead and encourage the development of a repurposed life, one that is realigned, refocused, and turns failure into a foundation for God’s miraculous transformation. This workshop examines the principles and nuances of the life recovery process, as well as coaching strategies in moving from failure to fulfillment.
Choice #2 – Healing Together: Building and Sustaining a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Racial Reconciliation Model
Dr. Mark Crear
Globally, reconciliation efforts have offered a powerful path toward emotional, social, relational, and cultural healing and progress. Reconciliation requires acknowledging and atoning for wrongs done and seeking forgiveness when appropriate, while also resolving to not repeat the wrongs and working to restore others to full humanity as fellow citizens. Gaining a better understanding of diversity, equity and inclusion, and multicultural competency is imperative to becoming a more effective and productive life coach. This workshop will explore significant concepts, strategies, and interventions to consider when addressing these important areas.
Choice #3 – Resilience God Style: From Cradle to Grave
Maj. Gen. Bob Dees (Ret.)
John 16:33 shares an important truth when Jesus said, “In the world, we will have tribulation, but take courage, I have overcome the world.” Overcoming and resilience have many things in common and resilience is a critical life skill. We are never too young or too old to learn how to better navigate adversity and “bounce” back – to get better, wiser, and stronger through the challenges we may face. Join our journey through key Resilience God Style principles and practices. This workshop examines the phases of the Resilience Life Cycle and how to get upstream ahead of trauma, crisis, and transition. Relevant, biblical truth and coaching strategies will be shared to help clients persevere before, during, and after the storms of life in order to promote individual, leader, and national resilience and restoration.
Choice #4 – Me, Myself, and God: Coaching Below the Surface
Cedric & Michelle White
Mankind can be viewed as a trichotomy: the body (Me), the soul (Myself), and the spirit (God). Redeemed sinners are filled with the Spirit of God and are alive, but unrepentant sinners have a fallen spirit (the spirit of man). The Bible speaks clearly about these distinct parts of a person in 1 Thessalonians 5:23 (NIV), “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” This workshop examines the important elements of this trichotomy and how they impact personal and spiritual growth, change, and the life coaching process.
Choice #5 – Building Breakthroughs for You and Your Clients: Five Essential Life Tools
Imagine having control of your life and waking up every day with clarity of focus, positive energy, and a purpose-driven mindset. Imagine being able to offer the same to your clients. As we provide personal development principles in any format, the outcomes can be exponential when built on a solid foundation of core life tools. In this presentation, Kim provides a coach’s perspective on the five foundational life tools she teaches in her “Build Your Breakthrough” workshop. Interactive discussion and application ideas are included that address the principles of Level Your Mindset, Drill into Focus, Glue in Habits, Connect through Relationships, and Use What You Have. Self-evaluation exercises and group work for further exploration are integrated throughout the session.
Life Coaching Intensives offer attendees the opportunity to complete an entire specialization course currently offered through ICCI’s video-based learning platform, but in a live setting and with the same instructors.

When choosing an Intensive, in order to fulfill the required number of contact hours, all pre-conference and regular workshop sessions/time slots will be incorporated into the Intensive (except the 4th workshop session on Saturday afternoon). The cost to register for an Intensive is $99.00 – there are four tracks to choose from.

This Intensive offers insightful tools and strategies that explore what it means to have a vibrant relationship with God, how to grow in Him, and have the right focus in life.
Track #2 – Transformed Living
Rolfe & Lea Carawan
Growing healthy interpersonal relationships in everyday life begins by first strengthening one’s relationship with God as it flows out of their principals, instructions, and personal convictions. This Intensive reviews the core foundations of the Transformed Living Model and how to effectively coach others to attain personal victories, create life-giving relationships, and ensure fruitful families.
Track #3 – Marriage Coaching
Dr. Gary & Barb Rosberg
Marriage Coaching is one of the most needed and sought after people helping services by countless couples.
