Faith-Based Training & Speaking Topics

The topics below are all included in my Faith-Based Pragmatic Signature Coaching Programs, but each topic can be taught independently to groups or to individuals with or without personal coaching for practical application within your own relationships. In addition, a full-bodied and engaging summary of each topic can be delivered as a keynote address. [Click HERE for a list of Communication Training and Speaking Topics]

(Click Here for Individual and Seminar Pricing)
  • The Pragmatics of Prayer - Depending on the context and length of the training or the limitations of delivery withing a keynote speech, possible coverage of this topic can dig into reasons we pray, the efficacy of prayer, hindrances to prayer, seasons of prayerlessness, developing a diversified "Prayer-Folio" and how to pray without ceasing.

  • Pragmatic Reading for Spiritual Growth - Before scripture means something to US, it means something [period]. In this topic, I share how to investigate the author's meaning before applying your own and how to find guidance and resources when you don't understand. I help find the method and schedule for reading that works for YOU in this season of your life (it can change) and I walk you through recognizing the dangers of playing "Bible Roulette", using "Magic Eight Bible" to rationalize opnions and decisions and the "Spiritual Horoscope" to guide decision-making. [In short - Nope, Nope and Nope.] As with prayer, you can dig in deep with me during multi-session training or I can cover a sub-topic within keynote speech

  • Grace-Based Pragmatic Conflict Resolution - This topic has the same foundation as its secular counter-part, Pragmatic Confict Resolution, but every aspect is grounded in faith, grace and prayer. First, I share the positive consequences of conflict and possible negative consequences when there's a lack of conflit and then I teach you recognize situations when it is best to intentionally avoid confrontation and when you should attempt to resolve conflict. Most importantly, and Learn how to prepare your heart and mind for Discover the steps you should take in response to by employing 9 strategic steps.

  • Saying Difficult Things in Love (aka Constructive Criticism) - Learn to respectfully and supportively give honest, objective feedback with a goal of minimizing tension and maximizing the possibility of a postive, productive outcome. On the flipside, learn how to receive, process and respond to both negative and positive feedback.

  • Sermons and Messages with Clarity and Purpose - I can help you strengthen your delivery by honing your speaking skills. Fine tune the organization of your content, find the optimum length and structure to promote retention and confirm your message is coming across as clearly as you believe it is.

  • Dealing with Crazymakers - Learn to identify classic narcissistic tactics and equip yourself to respond (instead of react) to attempts of manipulation and passive-aggressive attacks. (This topic deals with proactive and responsive communication tactics only. If you are are struggling with recovery from abuse, PLEASE seek the assistance of a professional therapist specializing in the treatment of victims of narcissistic personality disorder.
