Janice LaVore-Fletcher

Founder of Christian Coach Institute

Janice LaVore-Fletcher: Our Founder and President

I was an early adopter of coaching and attended Coach U (now CoachInc) under the founder of professional coaching, Thomas Leonard. Having studied Behavioral Sciences in college, I was curious about this new field of human behavior and quickly became a passionate student of professional coaching. This was in the mid nineties, and the industry was starting to evolve. Thomas Leonard then launched another coaching school, Coachville, and I became a charter member of the organization.

Both of these coaching schools are highly reputable with rich coaching curriculum and I loved the courses and people. I found the concepts had more of a “new age/universal approach” to coaching and centered around a humanistic model of “I can do all things in my own strength.” For me, there was an obvious critical component missing. Scripture teaches “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 I included my Christian values in the coaching process with my clients, and continued my path to complete formal Christian Coach training and Master Christian Coach training.

As a coach, I am a life long learner. Coaching is about personal growth and action. My personal philosophy is to learn, grow and share until I take my last breath. My favorite quote is by Erma Bombeck, “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I hope I have not a single bit of talent left and can say I used everything you gave me.”
