Item description for Transformissional Coaching: Empowering Leaders in a Changing Ministry World by Steve Ogne & Tim Roehl...
Overview A modern coaching guide for spiritual leaders that combines the Great Commandment and the Great Commission for an outreach approach that is known as "transformissional."
Even leaders need leading. In the context of this greatly changing world, ministry experts Steve Ogne and Tim Roehl have coined the phrase "transformissional" to define the unique type of inspired coaching they offer to spiritual leaders in need of fresh direction.
"The path that the Lord of the Harvest has designed sometimes takes us beyond our comfort zone and off the map of our experience," they write. "We'll help you understand how coaching helps leaders get traction and make progress in personal growth and ministry productivity. We'll also help you become an effective coach so no matter where you find yourself--from church buildings to coffee shops to places you've never gone before--you can come alongside to help others live out their call and make a difference in their world."
Endorsements: O"There are many gems in this book for those who coach pastors, church planters or missionaries. The strength of this book comes from years of coming alongside missional leaders. I have been on the receiving end of Steve Ogne's coaching ability and I know from experience how astute he is at drawing out the strength of the one he is coaching."-Neil Cole, director of Church Multiplication Associates and author of "Organic Church""Missional life and leadership remain docile concepts until someone is moved to action. Deconstructing failure without a way forward is nothing but hot air. Transformissional coaching is the difference. Author Steve Ogne isn't only a proven coach to coaches. He's my coach and has learned the secret of enlarging one's vision while centering leaders in reality . . . the reality of a world desperate for a new kind of leader and new kind of church."-Hugh Halter, coauthor of "The Tangible Kingdom" and director of Missio"Some books are written from an author's knowledge, and others come from the author's life calling, giftedness, experience and soul. This fits the latter. I've watched Tim and Steve live their book, and it is a delight to see how it reads like coaching on paper, about coaching, from two coaches. If you read "TransforMissional Coaching" in a quiet place, you can almost hear their voices encouraging you. It doesn't get any more real than this."-Brad Smith, president, Bakke Graduate University"There are few men that I consider both experts and friends. Steve Ogne and Tim Roehl fit that bill, and they are worth heeding. I was blessed with good mentors-but "TransforMissional Coaching" will help me (and you) be intentional, biblical, and strategic in our coaching relationships."-Ed Stetzer, director of LifeWay Research and coauthor of "Lost and Found"

Coaching Post-modern and Missional Leaders Aug 29, 2008
TransforMissional Coaching adds to a growing collection of books on coaching in ministry. The book's unique contributions are around coaching Post-modern leaders, coaching from a holistic missional mind-set, and coaching out of character and relational authority.
Steve Ogne and Tim Roehl are long-time coaches and church planting practitioners. Over the years their coaching has shifted from those planting "come unto us" churches, to those who are post-modern and missional. Their collective experience is detailed in this treasure chest filled with ministry coaching gems.
The authors advocate a hands-on approach to coaching that is both relational and experiential. A coach is not an advisor-teacher, as many who find themselves helping others often behave. Nor is a coach a passive sounding board who only listens and asks questions. A coach cares, celebrates, and challenges, as well as listens. Two chapters focus on the coach's character and relational authority.
Reading the book, I imagine many leaders will feel challenged to advise less, listen more, and grow in asking excellent questions. Several chapters will specifically help in this regard. The authors provide teaching, inspiration, and examples for listening and asking great questions.
The book also serves as a toolbox of coaching helps. There are three models for holistic coaching, more than 200 sample questions (yes, I counted!), how to adapt your coaching style using DISC, how to effectively coach Post-modern leaders, and help on coaching teams.
Throughout the book the authors tell stories to illustrate various coaching situations. The stories paint a picture of a coaching relationship. I have heard both Ogne and Roehl coach and can tell you they practice what they preach - they listen, ask great questions, challenge according to the coachee's goals, and keep their advice to a minimum.
The subtitle of the book is "empowering leaders in a changing ministry world." Two facts we don't want to ignore: the ministry world is changing rapidly and empowering leaders is the only solution to adapt and make an impact. Ogne and Roehl provide us with important helps to re-skill to be more empowering and more missional.
