GOLDEN RULE WORLD PEACE AMBASSADORS RECEIVE UNITED WAY VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR NOMINATIONS




Harrisburg, PA, USA - In an award ceremony held on Thursday evening, April 20, 2017, Golden Rule World Peace Ambassadors  and Community Life Coaches, Chris and Carol Green, received one of United Way's 2017 Volunteer of the Year Nomination awards for their work and services in a local women's shelter.

“I have been blessed to bear witness to the selfless and tireless efforts Chris and Carol put into making a difference in the lives of people,“ said Denise Britton, Executive Director of the Shalom House Women's shelter, representing her organization which submitted the nomination to the United Way.

“Initially committing to helping share their life coaching expertise to expand the services for women and children at Shalom House, they quickly expanded their support to helping our staff expand their skills and ability to serve our residents. Thank you seems hardly enough to say for the appreciation we want to extend to both of them, for all that they do, for all of us.”

A little over one year ago, the Greens were merged into the shelter's monthly calendar to provide life coaching support for both the staff and residents of this special outreach situated in one of the City of Harrisburg’s high-crime neighborhoods.

"We're honored to be named among so many great people," said the nominees following the event. "We learned of many others who are donating hundreds of hours per year to worthy causes in the community. It's humbling to be mentioned among them."

Chris and Carol Green became part of the Shalom House strategy to transition the residents out of the shelter and back into everyday life. Their coaching tools proved to be vital in enhancing the resident’s life coping skills; enabling them to take confident steps toward rebuilding their families and recapturing their lives.

The Greens are certified master life coaches, urban family advocates, marriage and family advisers, and community leadership consultants. This couple created and implemented a proven coaching model that empowers people to push past the temptations to give up, and instead, make intentional, thoughtful and positive responses in spite of the devastation and obstacles in life.

For their community service, they received a United Way 2017 Volunteer of the Year Nomination. They also received Urban Leadership Awards (2016) and Community Ambassador Awards (2015) from iChange Nations™ and were appointed Goodwill Ambassadors of World Peace, as part of an interfaith peace-building initiative to the United Nations, by Golden Rule International.

Chris Green is a social media expert and an award-winning  producer of a local cable TV broadcast (1999).  Together, they are international columnists/ writers with the Global Journalism Award-winning team of Dr. Clyde Rivers and iChange Nations Social Media News™.  They are the authors of 14 inspirational and life-building books, creators and principal writers of several blogs and eNewsletters.  They are also accomplished songwriters, having penned and produced over 150 songs since 1992.

They are both licensed and ordained ministers with honorary doctorate degrees in Christian Leadership (Chris) and in Humanities (Carol), conferred upon them to recognize nearly three decades of urban community innovations and service.  Additional certification, training and education has come from the American Association of Christian Counselors and the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

They are currently based in south central Pennsylvania where they established a community outreach that focuses on hearts and households, along with several life coaching and community spiritual care initiatives through their non-profit organization, Fruitful Life Network, Inc.

World Peace Ambassador, Dr. Clyde Rivers, calls them leading skilled experts in rebuilding, restoring and renewing hearts and homes; and innovators and pioneers in the empowering and equipping of today's community care, ready responders.

GOLDEN RULE WORLD PEACE AMBASSADORS LAUNCH NEW FRUITFUL LIFE COACHING MATRIX

Chris and Carol Green launch The Fruitful Life Coaching Matrix

Harrisburg, PA, USA - Today, Golden Rule World Peace Ambassadors, Chris and Carol Green, introduced their new Fruitful Life Coaching Matrix to human service providers, during a monthly staff training hosted by the Shalom House Women's Shelter in Harrisburg, PA. This new coaching matrix shows human service organizations how to adopt life coaching skill-sets within a case management paradigm.

The innovation came through a year-long series of monthly training sessions with the staff of a local women's shelter, and culminated in the presentation of a strategy the shelter could implement to ensure that every employee or volunteer is introduced to a Golden-Rule-based approach in their daily service to their clients and residents.

"We have been strategically introducing the staff to Golden Rule values and core beliefs," explains Carol Green, "Then we took them through personality assessments and self-awareness exercises, which proved to be necessary to get the needed buy-in for changing the way one has been doing things.  It is a huge challenge to get people, who have been involved in human services for many years, to adopt a life coaching approach within a traditional case management system."

The Greens have learned that organizations and agencies across the United States are recognizing the need to change and improve their training in helping their workers make a better connection with their clients. However, many case workers are still struggling with their own personal demons and inner barriers, which come rushing to the surface when they reach moments of frustrations with difficult clients.

"The Fruitful Life Coaching Matrix provides a practical way for a human service organization to ensure that their staff is empowered and equipped beyond the regular job-skills matrix," adds Chris Green. "The typical job-skill matrix is a checkbox that indicates how well the staffer can do her job. The Fruitful Life Coaching Matrix is all about ensuring that you have a healthy healer, who is more than just an employee who can handle her case management load."

The Greens are certified master life coaches, urban family advocates, marriage and family advisers, and community leadership consultants. In addition to the Life Coaching Matrix, this couple has created and implemented a proven coaching model that empowers people to push past the temptations to give up, and instead, make intentional, thoughtful and positive responses in spite of the devastation and obstacles in life.

For their community service, they received United Way's 2017 Volunteer of the Year Nominations. They also received Urban Leadership Awards (2016) and Community Ambassador Awards (2015) from iChange Nations™ and were appointed Goodwill Ambassadors of World Peace, as part of an interfaith peace-building initiative to the United Nations, by Golden Rule International.
