About Cheryl Scanlan

Cheryl Scanlan, MCC, CMCC is a former executive with a multi-million dollar firm in New York who loves the Lord.

In 2003, Tom, her husband and best friend of 35+ years, suggested coaching as a possible ministry for Cheryl. She followed his advice. In 2004, Cheryl began coaching even as she battled one of the worse cases of Lyme Disease on record at the time. Her work began in her local church of 4,000, where she had previously held numerous positions, such as Women’s Minister and Care Director.

Cheryl is primarily a business and executive coach with over 12,000 hours of coaching experience. She has worked with thousands of C-Levels and business owners within C3Advantage to develop high-performance organizations, foster executive health, and prepare organizations for critical transitions.

Currently, Cheryl serves as Provost of PCCI (Professional Christian Coaching Institute), and has partnered with Chris McCluskey for ten years and oversees the instructors, mentor coaching, and the CPLC certification process, and curriculum management.

As discussed in the podcast, Cheryl’s core passion is to see God’s people walk in step with Him. Within her nonprofit, Promised Land Living, Cheryl and her team equip certified coach presenters with tools to guide participants through a curriculum as they learn to walk in step with the Lord. Through a group and individual coaching method, Promised Land Living helps participants move into God’s best for their life.
