Item description for Christian Coaching: Helping Others Turn Potential into Reality by Gary Collins...

Coaching is a word no longer used only in the athletic arena. Not only is it the "hottest thing in management today," according to Fortune magazine, but it is spilling over into all areas of our active lives. We are seeing personal coaches in health clubs for exercise programs, diet and nutrition, as well as for personal finances and business. In fact, coaching can be used in any aspect of life that requires accountability, encouragement, and a commitment to growth. Dr. Gary Collins, a well-known author in the field of counseling, takes the successful principles of coaching and gives them a God-centered application. Broader in scope than either mentoring or discipling, Christian coaching helps people find God's vision for their lives and learn to live accordingly. Through stories, insights, and interviews with influential coaches, Collins gives us a model of Christian coaching. The principles can be used to bring vision, passion, and a sense of purpose to your own life, as well as equip you to guide others. You may want to become a professional coach, or simply use coaching in your personal ministry or church. Christian Coaching will help you learn the characteristics of an effective coach, how to build those characteristics into your life, and how to coach and lead others with the same leadership style Jesus demonstrated: servant leadership. If you long to make a difference in the lives of others, this book will give you the tools and skills to use coaching to impact those around you. The best coaches help others to envision the future and imagine doing things that they have never done before. With this book, you can become that kind of coach.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Coaching: Helping Others Turn Potential into Reality?

Very useful teaching!  Nov 6, 2008
A real nuts-and-bolts book on the fundamentals of Christian coaching. It is the primary textbook in my current coaching class. Using the class and this book is enough to get me going in the right direction, and to start building a coaching clientele; however, these alone will not sustain my practice, and I know that. I will most likely take another coaching course with more comprehensive materials, but all Christian coaching schools that I know of use this book, and it's easy to see why. I would definitely recommend it for those interested in getting an overview of the "why" and "how" of coaching.
Christian Coaching  Apr 6, 2008
This is a keystone book for practical Christian coaching. Dr. Collins provides great examples from his personal story, as well as the experience of many other coaches. He includes a model of coaching which establishes a foundation for academic discussion. A pleasant surprise is the many bibliographical references which provided treasured information for my research on this topic.
Ignore the title  Jan 15, 2008
I bought this book as a requirement to one of my graduate classes. It is a good book on mentoring and relationship building, not coaching as in athletics though some of the points could be used in athletic coaching. The essence of the book is comparable to 'life coaching' except it is within a christian context.
Christian Coaching  Nov 23, 2007
I recommend this book to anyone interested in Christian coaching or counseling. Whether you are new to coaching or have only been a counselor, or are a pastor you need to be aware of this way of helping people become the best that they can be. This book will be one of your handbooks.
Jesus was the first coach  Jun 1, 2007
Secular books on coaching include basic premises that are at odds with the core tenants of the Christian faith. This book aligns coaching principles with those tenants.
