    The workshop is divided into five sessions:

    Session 3: The Gift of Presence – presents key listening skills and the concept of identifying direction and motivation as a first step when considering a lifestyle change.

    Session 4: The Gift of Clarity – offers techniques for asking questions to take a conversation a little deeper and help someone set SMART change goals, weekly action steps and strategies for meeting obstacles.

    Session 5: The Git of Support – addresses approaches for providing support or change and integrating faith with lifestyle change. The workshop concludes in this session as participants consider how a coaching approach can be incorporated into existing health ministry activities.
