Focusing on God's imperative to be a dreamer, the foundation beliefs necessary to live a dream life and ways to overcome obstacles we face, this book is a great life purpose tool for coaches.

By Matthew Kelly
Hardcover, 158 pages

In the style of Patrick Lencioni's leadership fables, Kelly explains how taking an interest in peoples' dreams is good business. The Dream Manager is about a company that hires coaches to help deal with high turnover--by creating a "Dream Manager" position to help employees find and follow their dreams. It's a great example of how coaching can be used at an organizational level instead of just with a few individuals. It's a great introduction to coaching for managers and business leaders, and an inspiring read for coaches who want to build a coaching culture in organizations.

(Review of 1st edition)

Dr. Gary R. Collins, a well-known author in the field of counseling, takes the successful principles of coaching and gives them a God-centered application. Broader in scope than either mentoring or discipling, Christian coaching helps people find God’s vision for their lives and learn to live accordingly.

Through stories, insights, and interviews with influential coaches, Collins presents a model of Christian coaching. The principles can be used to bring vision, passion and a sense of purpose to your own life, as well as equip you to guide others. You may want to become a professional coach or simply use coaching in your personal ministry or church. Christian Coaching will help you learn the characteristics of an effective coach, how to build those characteristics into your life, and how to coach and lead others with the same leadership style Jesus demonstrated—servant leadership.

Powerful Questions: Coaching Visionaries offers advanced skills training for aspiring leadership coaches or those who are already certified. This disc includes input on several advanced techniques for coaching leaders toward a vision. Each skill is then demonstrated in extended, live coaching sessions, with leaders who dream about changing the world.

Visionaries often get stuck in the pursuit of their dreams when they come up against the limitations of their own strengths and weaknesses. You'll earn to coach visionaries around these obstacles with three powerful asking approaches that remove limitations:

- A Strengths Inventory helps the leader think through what they bring to the visionary task and where they need help.
- Crafting Your Ideal Role lets a visionary create a role that really fits and bring others into the areas they are made to do.
- Make or Break Factors assesses the visionary's readiness, and is a great technique for coaching younger leaders to keep moving forward aggressively when the fulfillment of their dream is a ways off.
