By focusing on strengths and talents while developing clear values and mission alignment, Tony Husted helps individuals transfer their focus from “what is wrong” to “what is possible” to set free possibilities for growth, enrichment, learning, and change. Unlike traditional “therapy,” Tony Husted’s coaching connects clients in a mutual exploration of possibilities, motivations, values, empowering beliefs, skills, and capabilities to develop ecological goals, action plans, and contingency planning.
Coaching from a Christian Worldview offers the client a unique opportunity to explore their God given talents and gifts. The Christian Worldview as a frame of reference for excellent living is positive in nature, offers hope in difficult situations, allows healing through forgiveness, guides us in moral decision making, creates unlimited opportunities, and offers access to unlimited knowledge through the ongoing ministry of the Holy Spirit.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a pioneering modeling strategy rooted in expert communication. Discovered in the early 1970’s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, NLP was originally based on modeling Virginia Satir: the founder of Family Therapy, Milton Erickson: the greatest Hypnotherapist of all time, Gregory Bateson: a social anthropologist, and Fritz Perls: founder of Gestalt Therapy. The foundation of success for the original four people modeled was exquisite communication skills. NLP’s focus is on what works, modeling the thoughts, actions, and feelings of outstanding performance. Coaching clients benefit from a large toolbox of strategies and interventions developed over 30 years of modeling that artfully allow skill development, capacity building, values and beliefs alignment, identity exploration, and universal connection.
Solution-Focused Coaching (SFC) is a future oriented, strength based model of communication that holds several key presuppositions from NLP into the framework of coaching with a strong future orientation. Rather than focusing on what hasn’t worked in the past, or what is “broken”, SFC holds the following tenants: There is no such thing as failure, only feedback; People always make the best choice available to them at the time; People work perfectly; The meaning of communication is the response you get; Choice is better than no choice; People already have all the resources they need, and that symptoms - aches, pains, anxiety, depression, etc. are communication for needed action.
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a change management tool developed by David Cooperrider, PhD in the 1980’s. The main thrust of AI is appreciation of what works and is going well in an organization or individual. Through holding a focus on the positive aspects of a business or an individual’s life, these strengths develop and manifest to a greater level. This is in stark contrast to societal habits focusing on what is wrong, broken, or not going well. Within the life coaching framework AI allows for positive and inspirational sessions that create real results.
Coaching is a unique future oriented relationship based on the client’s specific goals. Coaching addresses all aspects of a person’s life: Environment, Behavior, Capabilities, Belief, Values, Identity, and relationship with God. The International Coach Federation Describes Coaching: Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coach’s help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives.
Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach's job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has.
