Reader Feedback

“This is the most comprehensive guide we’ve discovered on the mechanics, dynamics and skills you must develop to train and lead your coaches. It’s one of our best new finds, and covers coaching like no other book we offer!”

Touch USA (The Cell Group People)

“I have enjoyed reading your book on Leadership Coaching! I have learned more in one week reading your book than I did in one month of taking classes with [a coaching school]. My wife is also benefiting from me asking more open ended relevant questions.”

"I think your book, Leadership Coaching is the best I've read for presenting the heart of Christian coaching and the practical tools and skills."

"Everything I [thought I] knew about coaching is being turned upside down by this book... and I like what I'm reading."

"…keep writing about Christian coaching and keep equipping Christian coaches like myself. Your material has been motivational to me. You have a gift of applying biblical principles with coaching and I always look forward to your publications. Leadership Coaching is top of my list for Christian Coaching books."

Well-what can I tell you? I REALLLLLY like what I have read in your book so far--no, REALLLLLLLLLLY! I find your approach to be so clean and insightful... and I am eager to help others live to their full potential--their God-given potential. One of the lovely gifts that I am quickly taking hold of is the responsibility that the client must take in the coaching relationship for goal achievement. Brilliant. Thank-you for your no-nonsense, unapologetic approach to coaching.

A coach shares a note from someone she's coaching...
"Have begun reading "Leadership Coaching"--what an EXCELLENT book!!"

"Your prayer on page four of Leadership Coaching was answered in my life. Never before has any coaching book made me so hungry to discover the passion and live the lifestyle of a coach!"

“…that book has just put coaching all together in my mind for me. I’ve been in a secular coach training program for a year and I was sort of floundering… I probably got as much out of reading the book as I have out of that whole program.”

"Leadership Coaching is a "must read". Tony's principles are basic, yet profound. Liberally illustrated by real life stories and punctuated by challenging life application questions, Leadership Coaching is not a book you read—it is a book you experience!"

"Well written, intensely practical, biblical, and filled with clear examples and useful learning tools, this book will be a valuable resource for the experienced coach as well as for the beginner. I am honored to recommend it enthusiastically."

Gary R. Collins, PhD,
Professor of Leadership and Coaching, Psychological Studies Institute
Author of Christian Coaching.

"I became a professional coach largely because of Tony's personal coaching. Now, my coaching company has become the largest coach training organization in Korea. I am able to coach leaders from my mother church and from top companies like Hyundai, LG and SK. Leadership Coaching is not merely a collection of nice information: it is transformational truth which will train you experientially to become a coach."
