5.0 out of 5 stars Guide to Coaching Potential by a Master Coach 23 Dec 2007
Format:Paperback
Christ-Centered Coaching: 7 Benefits for Ministry Leaders is a excellent introduction for Christian leaders to what coaching is and how it can help. The author, Jane Creswell, is no hack when it comes to coaching. She's the founder of the IBM Coaches Network and a Master Certified Coach, she's also a Christian with a passion to bring coaching to ministry leaders.

The strength of the book lies in Creswell's ability to dig into seven coaching approaches, which also serve as seven mental models or attitudes of a coach. Each chapter is illustrated with useful case studies of coaching situations that take the book from theory to real life. The seven are:

1. Leveraging strengths
2. Provide clarity and focus
3. Instill confidence
4. Catapult learning
5. Foster intentional progress
6. Coach others
7. Encourage God-sized goals

These seven may not sound particularly unique, they are not, what is unique is the way Creswell illustrates how coaching accomplishing these things in a non-directive way and integrates these with Scriptures. As such, this book is helpful to learn the mindset and approaches of a good coach. Both potential coaches and clients would benefit from reading it.

Christ-Centered Coaching adds to a growing library of coaching books for Christians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christ-Centered Coaching Helps Everyone 2 Jun 2006
By David Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A well-written book which appears to be targeted towards men and women who serve on the staffs of churches, it also provides valuable insights into how coaching works and how it can benefit everyone. It is organized in a manner that makes it easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to refer back to. I recommend it for everyone's library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Insights for Coaching 18 July 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I believe "Christ-centered Coaching" is a great book both for those who coach and those are coached. It gives clarity as to what coaching is and is not and what it can strive to attain. The book is easily understood, even by the novice to coaching. I would recommend this book as one to be read first by those who are just beginning to explore coaching.

This book was recommended to me by a pastor who has been coaching me. It is my desire to coach others in the future. This book was very beneficial. It was to the point and gave senarios to support teachings. I recommend this book to anyone who has a desire to help others move forward in fulfilling their God-given potential.

By Edith L. Banning - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just as the title says, this book is easy to read and has some very good informaiton. I have enjoyed reading it and I will keep it to refer back to even though I am not a minister. However, anyone who wants to work with people in a helping profession can gain insight and useful knowledge from this book.
