Helping Hand


Design your path to a meaningful life.

What if your work life wasn't built around reacting to urgency?

What if your vision and calling helped pave the road ahead for you?

What if your partner, boss, or client, got to see you fully engaged with your strengths, your purpose, your passion?

I am an experienced and accredited coaching professional that can help you thrive.

I'm John Arndt.

I fell in love with helping people through coaching in 2011, when I became a certified coaching professional using Gallup's CliftonStrengths. I watched coworkers come alive when they heard how unique they were, and how they could intentionally develop themselves by paying attention to their patterns of feelings, thoughts and emotions. Once we accept our and celebrate our uniqueness, then we're able to address inner conflicts, relational struggles and unhealthy habits with support and encouragement. Living in South Africa for almost a decade, I experienced how necessary patient attention and consistent encouragement is for people from diverse cultures and socio-economic backgrounds.


I've spent over a decade developing leaders through spiritual formation, propelling them outward as learners and storytellers. I'm passionate about helping clients discover their purpose through their design and unique background.


I have a Masters in Christian Formation and Discipleship, which set the groundwork for my coaching today, because my thesis and training focused on how leaders' strong character is developed by asking open questions instead of just relying on giving advice. 

I see the integration of coaching and sacred listening as a vehicle for healing and growth. I value diversity, strategic focus, and holistic growth.

I've been working with Integer Networks since 2018. Check out our coaching towards authenticity and wholeness here.

The International Coaching Federation is the leading global organization for coaches and coaching. I am trained in, and observe, the ICF's Core Comptencies.

ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.


  • Life Coaching is client-centric, meaning that you bring the topic to each meeting. It could be a mindset that has you stuck, a goal you need to set, a problem you need to solve, but it starts and ends with you. It is as many sessions as you need.

  • The Strengths package helps you discover and champion your CliftonStrengths, consider your unique wiring, and identify areas for growth. We usually start your Strengths journey with 3 sessions.

  • Your One Degree is a holistic workbook that enables you to identify your calling, with CliftonStrengths awareness only one of several steps. This is best accomplished in 8 sessions.


Book a free exploratory chat with me. I'd be happy to discuss what I offer, and hear what you are looking for to see if we'd be a good match.


Spiritual accompaniment is sacred listening, a support for your spiritual journey. Spiritual accompaniment helps you consider how God might be present in your life, and provoke new considerations for spiritual growth.
