    Great Coaching Book

    Great book for new coaches as well as experienced coaches. I really liked the Asking Focused Questions section in chapter 6 "Powerful Questions; Less-powerful Questions; and my favorite The Miracle Question are great tools that will benefit all coaches. The information in this book isn't restricted to coaches alone, almost everyone such as doctors, lawyers, and parents can benefit from reading this book.

    Life Coaching for Christians

    Whether you are a counseling, pastor, life coach or just something that is good with listening this is a keeper for your permanent shelf. Basically a text book, this manual breaks things down and answers a lot of question. It is even a valuable tool for someone just curious about what Christian Coaching is. I have to admit, when this arrived on my doorstep (again another one that I say is due to my non committal of a genre) I assumed it was another book about sports. So I put it on the back burner and figured I would get to eventually.

    My was I surprised when I realized that this was coaching as in a "life coach". Oops. Now that I know what this book was for I was interested. Cracking open the beginning of these 400+ some odd pages I was introduced to the Foundations of Christian Coaching followed by three chapters of the Skills necessary. Then there are some more brief sections on an Assessment, Vision and Stategy, Action and Obstacles with lots of lists of goals. Lastly, this textbook rounds off with great chapters of Specialities in Christian Coaching and the Practice.

    What a wealth of information! This is entertaining for one thing but so educational. It is a great reference tool to come back to again and again for reassurance and coming back to a standing stasis. The last hundred pages are Appendixes (reminds me of my dad's book) that would be a great book on their own.

    If you are in a line of work that is in guiding people or helping people or let's face it "coaching". You really need this book.

    Review of Christian Coaching by Gary Collins

    Review of Christian Coaching by Gary Collins
    I took an unusually long time to work my way through this book. Normally, that'd be an indication that I didn't like it, but in this case, the exact opposite is true. I found this book to be a complete course in life coaching, systematically walking you through all the theories, practical skills and useful tools you'll need to put what you learn into practice. I found myself purposely slowing down, going back and re-reading entire portions to allow them to sink in and really stick in my mind. I took the time to reflect, not only on how I could apply the techniques in my coaching of others, but I found myself doing some self coaching along the way. And, as if the step-by-step instruction itself isn't valuable enough, Collins blesses us with a treasure trove of sample forms, questionnaires and tools in the appendices. These bonuses alone are worth the price of the book. I've already begun using what I've learned from this incredible instructional text. Undoubtedly, I will return to it again and again, and will recommend it as an essential resource to all who have an interest in the area of coaching.
    FYI: I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commision's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
