Transforming Conversations is a professional training in coaching skills designed by 3D coaching and delivered under licence in the Diocese of Exeter by Ian Bussell and Mike Williams. Coaching is essentially the skill of helping someone think through their stuff in their own way. It’s a core skill for anyone enabling and empowering the ministry of others. This four day course is learning through practice so that, like learning to ride a bike, what feels clunky at first becomes part of your practice by day four.

Who is this for?

  • Anyone who thinks they may have the heart and the time to offer coaching to others in the diocese.
  • Anyone in a supervisory role such as training incumbents, rural/area deans and team leaders.

Others have said ‘this has transformed the way I work’, ‘the best course I’ve done’, ‘so helpful for ministry’.
