-         Summary of meetings for the Coach based on the above example – 15 meetings:

o       3 huddles, 5 one-on-ones, 5 group visits, 2 church-wide meetings

 

-         Summary of meetings for a Leader based on the above example – 7 meetings:

o       3 huddles, 1 one-on-one, 1 group visit, 2 church-wide meetings

 

-          Any huddle could be replaced by a larger group setting or a one-on-one or other gathering as deemed appropriate by the coach & leader (e.g. “All Singles Leaders Meeting”. 

 

This example is intended to be one potential way that the schedule for a coach could be divided up throughout a year.  The purpose is to provide a balanced framework, while helping keep the load reasonable and not ignore the need for enough “touch points” with leaders to provide adequate care.  Feel free to customize to fit the needs of your leaders.
