Do you want to increase your effectiveness in working with people, developing leaders and transforming lives? Leadership Coaching will show you how.
(We recommend this book to PASTORS who need to develop a comprehensive way to develop coaches over small groups/cell groups. It's not so much a book a pastor would buy and give to coaches as much as it's a deep look at what coaching is and how to develop a culture of coaching in your church. Powerful content... but not a quick read and not for everyone! Choose one of our other excellent resources to give to your coaches and buy this to read yourself.)
Leadership Coaching is an essential tool for coaches, leaders and trainees. Written by a prominent Christian coach and coach trainer, this book overflows with the practical tools, real life examples and practice exercises that bring the coaching approach to life.
The book begins with in-depth look at the heart of a leadership coach: the values and character qualities that give coaching its tremendous power. If you grasp the heart of coaching, you'll coach instinctively--so the author provides plenty of powerful stories and biblical examples to help. Starting with insights about how God builds leaders from the inside out, the book presents an integrated paradigm for developing leaders through coaching. As one coach trainer says:
“Without a doubt, it's the best I've read in the coaching genre. Tony has raised the bar for books on coaching with Leadership Coaching. This is especially true for coaching books written from a biblical perspective.”
