Read an In-Depth Review
What makes Christ-Centered Coaching uniquely valuable in the universe of coaching books is that it is written primarily about why you should be interested in coaching. While it includes information on how to coach, it gives the most in-depth treatment of the benefits of being coached, making it perfect for a potential client, an organizational leader or pastor you are talking to about coaching, or even a spouse who doesn't "get" why you do what you do. If you want to up your game in talking more convincingly about the power of coaching, recruiting clients or just explaining what you do to friends and loved ones, this is a great read.
Master coach Jane Creswell brings decades of coaching experience to the table--she actually started the coaching program at IBM--and has coached and trained coaches extensively in business, ministry and academia. Out of this wide experience, she employs true-to-life coaching stories, sample coaching conversations, copious references to scripture, and plenty of examples to make a convincing argument for coaching.
In summary, Christ-Centered Coaching, is the perfect way to introduce coaching to a friend or fellow Christian leader.

"Jane Creswell models in an incredible way how to coach as modeled by Jesus.

This book is a great tool for all ministry leaders!"
"A bridge. I was looking for a bridge, the crossing of which would turn knowing about excellent ministry into doing excellent ministry. Coaching Creswell-style has clearly provided that bridge for many Western team members, alumni, and students. If you've been on a search for that bridge, look no further than the biblical, missional, transformational and delightful message of this book. It's not just a must read--it's a must do."
