 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>Be available for **6 coaching calls**, schedule these with the coachee, and make sure these 6 happen. If you or the coachee have to reschedule, make sure that the calls are rescheduled. If the coachee wants to be coached for more than 6 times, you are free to do so, or refer them back to SEND U.</font> 
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>Be generally familiar with the topics discussed at MOP. See the</font>[[https://senduwiki.org/member_orientation_program#mop_curriculum|MOPCurriculumGuide]]Be sure to ask your coachee which MOP they attended as curriculum can vary between MOPs. 
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>Hold the coachees accountable to review all the MOP handouts (on the SEND U wiki or in their own “binders”). Action steps can be focused on doing so.</font> 
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>After each coaching call on the 4 key areas (see sample coaching questions below), ask the coachee to write their self-assessment and send it to you. Read through it, and if you see any red flags, use remaining coaching sessions to create further clarity. Your objective is to provoke deeper self-awareness and understanding, and to develop action steps that will move the coachee to greater personal health and effective incarnational ministry in their new culture.</font> 
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>Set the parameters of the coaching conversation, while still giving the coachee some freedom to choose the specific agenda for the call. For example, an “Outcome” question you could ask: “What part of your written assessment do you want to work on today?” OR “Today I would like us to work on your Individual Growth Plan for this next year. In what areas of your life or ministry do you think would be most important for you to develop a plan for growth?”</font> 
 +  - Coach them in developing their **Individual Growth Plan (IGP)**  for the coming year. There is an [[http://senduwiki.org/amp_igp|IGP template here]] where you will find information and ideas about growth activities for the creation of an IGPAsk the coachee to send the completed IGP to you and their team leader. 
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>If the coachee is making good progress on or has completed their written self-assessments and IGP, use the remaining coaching call(s) to coach around challenges they are facing in their new ministry assignment.</font> 
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>Maintain confidentiality regarding your coaching conversations. Do not share information about the coaching conversation without the coachee’s permission unless required by law. The things you learn should not be discussed with either the receiving or sending area leadership without the knowledge of the coachee. You can encourage the missionary to talk to their leadership about these issues. If you believe that coaching is not sufficiently addressing the problems that are surfacing, and you believe counseling or leadership intervention is required, follow the procedure outlined in the document</font><font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;#1155cc;;inherit>“{{:when_coaching_is_not_enough.docx|When Coaching is Not Enough}}</font>  .” 
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>At the conclusion of each coaching series, complete an **evaluation** from SEND U about the MOP-up coaching process.</font>

 +===== The Process of Assigning a Coach: =====
 +
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>MOP-up Coordinator will contact the receiving area to determine which and when first-term missionaries are ready for the MOP-up program (between first and second year on the field).</font>
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>The receiving area leadership will initially communicate to the first-term missionary about the MOP-up program.</font>
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>MOP-up Coordinator will contact potential coaches to confirm that they are available and willing to coach the missionary in MOP-up. We will assign different coaches for husbands and wives, and generally men for men, and women for women.</font>
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>Once the coach is confirmed, MOP-up Coordinator will send an email to both coach and coachee, explaining the program, outlining the expectations, and introducing the coach and coachee to one another.</font>
 +  - <font 11pt/Arial,sans-serif;;inherit;;inherit>Once the coach receives this email with the coachees contact information, coaches will contact coachees to set up the first call.</font>
