Coaching for Christian Leadersby Linda Miller
Read an In-Depth Review
In Coaching for Christian Leaders, Linda J. Miller and Chad W. Hall introduce readers to the world of coaching. The book contains three sections: an overview of the coaching model, a section on coaching skills (by far the longest), and a portion on coaching in ministry situations. Coaching for Christian Leaders is a practical, skill-focused book that walks you through how to actually do a coaching conversation with another leader, covering techniques from asking and listening to acknowledging, action-planning and defining the coaching relationship. Each technique is copiously illustrated, with exercises to let you practice on your own. You'll walk away equipped with the tools and insights you need to start using Christian coaching with those in your world.
The book also contains an interesting section for ministry leaders on using coaching tools and concepts in a church setting. Miller and Hall take a wide-ranging look at topics like a coaching approach to preaching, to prayer, to conflict resolution, and even to the sacraments. Several appendicies also offer a sample coaching contract, coaching forms and other useful information. Price $19.99 19.99
