The Coaching Paradigm: Asking vs. Telling

by Tony Stoltzfus

At its heart, leadership coaching is about helping people solve their own problems, not telling them what to do. One of the most difficult changes beginning coaches must make is learning to ask questions instead of giving advice. As they struggle to get used to this new approach, the following kinds of questions invariably come out:

  • “Would it help if you’d keep track of how much time you’re spending on that project?”
  • “Could you just come right out and say something to her about the problem?”
  • “Do you think you should talk to your pastor about that?”

To see what’s really going on, simply cross out the first several words of each question, like this:

  • “Would it help if you’d Keep track of how much time you’re spending on that project.”
  • “Could you Just come right out and say something to her about the problem.”
  • “Do you think You should talk to your pastor about that.”

Oops! What we thought were good coaching queries turn out to be statements instead. The coach is dutifully attempting to ask questions, but what actually comes out are pieces of advice with question marks stuck on the end...

This short, practical volume offers a wealth of great tips and techniques for constructing excellent coaching questions. While not a coaching book per se (it is targeted at small group coaches or leaders), How to Ask Great Questions covers quite a few of the bread and butter asking techniques coaches use: open and closed questions, probing questions, asking about what's significant, and bringing out people's inner thoughts and true feelings.

The best feature of the book is that it includes example after example of great questions created for specific scenarios or situations. Any coach (and especially beginners, coaches in training or small group coaches) could benefit from having How to Ask Great Questions handy.

Faith Coaching

For too long, Christians have taken a delivery approach to spiritual formation: we memorize key verses and snappy concepts to spring on our un-churched neighbors; we provide fill-in-the-blank study courses for believers who want to grow in faith; we strive to tell, teach and transfer what we know.

But there's a better approach. By using a conversational, coaching approach to spiritual formation, you can open wide the doors that help others expand their commitment to Christ. Easy to learn and to apply, the concepts in Faith Coaching help you to leverage the power of coaching conversations to help people find and follow a genuine spiritual path.
