During the next two weeks, my coworker Dana Russo and I will train the communication coaches for our upcoming summer project. These Keynote and Impact staff members will coach our project students as they practice public speaking during daily workshops called “comm drills.” Dana and I want to equip and encourage our coaches as they (or we, actually, since both of us are also coaches) help the students gain confidence in a skill that will help them in all their interactions with people.
I’ll also be doing another form of coaching as I serve on a team of evaluators that will give helpful feedback to our teachers this summer. We’ll sit in on their classes and provide them with constructive critique of their communication skills.
- For wisdom for Dana and me as we train our summer communication coaches
- For rest, strength, and personal time with God during an extremely busy schedule
- For God to work in and through the lives of the students on our project
