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.

Finding Your Place on the Calling Journey

Excerpted from The Calling Journey by Tony Stoltzfus

It always makes me a little nervous to travel without a road map. Turn-by-turn directions don't do it for me: I want to visualize where I am going. Once I can see the route in my mind and know where the important turns are, I am much more confident that I won't get lost.

The journey to your calling is like that. By looking at the paths of fellow travelers, you'll get a big-picture view of the road you are taking. Comparing your story to theirs will offer amazing insights into how different events in your life fit into God's plan for your development, in the same way that a road map lets you visualize the twists and turns on a cross-country trip.

The first thing you'll probably notice when you look at the calling timeline is how bumpy and windy the road is. This map is very different from popular images of "following your call."

Coaching for Performance was the first book I (Tony) ever read as a coach, and I still think it is one of the best. John Whitmore was one of the first practitioners in the coaching field, and his book reflects that experience. It is a top-rated, practical business coaching guide written in a coaching style.

Starting with the goal, Whitmore shows you how to walk a coachee through evaluating his or her starting point, developing options and solutions, and then creating actions to accomplish that goal. With tips, example questions and sample dialogue for each step, this definitive guide will quickly have you coaching people to clarity and action.
