Author Models What She Teaches Feb 9, 2008
It is always a treat to meet an author and discover she is a walking-talking model of the principles covered in her book. Teri is an icon in the coaching industry and a rare combination of intelligence and compassion, insight and empathy, wisdom and wit. This book features many real-life examples that showcase how to work with others in a way that brings out their purpose, potential, peace of mind and productivity. As the 15-time Emcee of the Maui Writers Conference and a consultant who consults with clients on how to produce one-of-a-kind books, I know a quality book when I see one. This is an excellent resource for coaches, managers, parents and teachers. Read it and reap.
Pure Inspiration Jan 19, 2008
In Coaching with Spirit, Teri-E Belf invites her readers to honor the presence of Spirit in the coaching conversation and to experience the intuitive dimensions of coaching. This highly readable, philosophical book is for coaches in all fields, including practitioners in mental health, medicine, education, and organizational development. There are chapters for bringing Spirit into Marketing one's practice, Executive Coaching, International Coaching, Coach Leadership and the creation of Coaching Communities.
Belf tells her readers that accessing the Spirit within and around us reveals the self in relation to the universe. Spirit is ineffable, ever present, and available. It is unconditional love, acceptance, guidance and connection to Source. Partnering with Spirit, coaches help themselves and others find purpose, reach for fulfillment, and tap into life's meanings. This book teaches coaches how to work with Spirit through connection, honoring the moment, and taking responsibility.
The book is a collaborative effort of 40+ coaches sharing anecdotes about those "coachable moments" when Spirit is evident. The author includes a chapter on the spirituality of coaching from the client's perspective, with touching and inspiring essays describing how coaching opens doors to purposeful living, self-knowledge and creative approaches to life challenges.
Belf explores the inner world of the coach and teaches methods that access Spirit: Listening, meditating, trusting one's intuition, asking thought-provoking questons, allowing silence, and letting clients take responsibility for their own solutions and choices. Coaching with Spirit is beautifully written. It's a book that I can open at any page and use what is there for medication and reflection. Teri-E Belf has truly captured the transformational nature of coaching.

`Coaching with Spirit' by Teri-Belf is a book for all of us to use as a continual referral. You can open it on any page to receive insight and understanding. There are powerful questions and stories from coaches, from clients, that are applicable for each of us at any time. There are suggestions for being present, making choices and resolving dilemmas. A warm flow of energy connects the stories. You will hear the stillness, the quietness and experience the magic of Spirit. `Coaching with Spirit' will bring awareness to your life.
Connecting with Spirit Dec 11, 2007
I read this book as if it is a book of poems, reading through different chapters as I felt drawn to them.
At times when I have felt stuck while coaching a client or in my personal life I have reflected on what I had learned from Coaching With Spirit. I would then quiet myself, go inside and ask, "Spirit, what should I do now?" This process has brought me many surprises in both my coaching and in my life.
Thank you, Teri-E, for showing me new and powerful ways to connect with spirit.
The proof is in the living it... Dec 7, 2007
What impresses me so much about this book is the example that the author has demonstrated over time in her living. I know Teri-E Belf personally; she was my coaching mentor almost 20 years ago. Over that period of time, I have witnessed her in many situations where she has demonstrated to me in her quiet, steadfast way that she coaches and lives with spirit.
While there is much value in the content and myriad viewpoints of the authors participating in this book, I personally take great pleasure in the fact that this book is a manifestation of someone who is a master of what she teaches.
Anyone can write a book these days, but not everyone is a master of the topic at hand. Teri-E continues to be a model for me of how to live a blessed and contagious life. And that alone can be reason enough to read this book.
It is obvious to me, and likely obvious to anyone with whom she has worked, that Teri-E is creating her legacy in this and many other ways.
