This manual will help any leader do a better job in coaching others to reach their full potential in life and ministry. The authors have helped many leaders enhance their ability to minister effectively and avoid many of the obstacles that stifle growth and vitality. By applying the principles and skills outlined in Empowering Leaders Through Coaching, you will learn how to help leaders evaluate, set priorities, make action plans, solve problems, maximize strengths and stay on target. Coaching is more of an Art than a science. You are dealing with real people who need to know someone cares and will help them with planning and time management and hold them accountable in areas that matter for life and ministry. You don't have to have all the answers. This is a journey that you and those you coach will all grow from. The notes, work sheets, lists of questions, checklists, prayer journals, and eight audio CDs included in this manual will keep you focused and encouraged.
