Hi, my name is Mark Haines. I’m a happy husband, father, grandfather, and friend functioning as a leadership coach, mentor, and pastor.

Meet Coach Mark

Head Coach at Higher Order Coaching

I grew up in Indiana and I lived in Kentucky, Wisconsin, and Ohio before moving to Bay City, in Michigan’s Great Lakes Bay Region.

I married the girl I met on the first day of our freshman year at college. We have three adult daughters; two of them are married. We have two grandchildren.

A few years ago I worked with a coach who helped me find the way out of a deep rut. Experiencing the power of coaching launched my desire to become a certified coach. My mission is to accelerate your progress toward achieving your goals.

I am a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF), as well as the Michigan chapter of ICF. I have completed all requirements of Creative Results Management’s Coaching Mastery Certificate Program as part of the Professional Coach Certificate Program approved by the ICF.icflogocolor

I am a Certified Grip-Birkman coach leading pastors and ministry teams to discover their God-given leadership strengths and personalities so they can “fit and flourish” in their places of service.

I collaborate with leaders that seek to take their teams to new levels of effectiveness. I develop leaders and their teams through on-site meetings and classes. I’ve coached in person and through communication apps such as Skype.

If leading your team to greater effectiveness sounds interesting to you, let’s talk about coaching.
