The COACH Model is a radically different approach to leading people. Rather than provide answers, leaders ask questions to draw out what God has already put into others. ICF Professional Certified Coach and speaker Keith Webb teaches Christian leaders how to create powerful conversations to assist others to solve their own problems, reach goals, and develop their own leadership skills in the process. Whether leaders are working with employees, teenagers, or a colleague living in another city, they'll find powerful tools and techniques to increase leadership effectiveness. Based on first-hand experience and taught around the world, The COACH Model for Christian Leaders is packed with stories and illustrations that bring the principles and practice to life and transform leaders' conversations into powerful results.

I loved this book in its first edition. It was simple and clear in its coaching instruction. Anyone can read it and get started in integrating coaching into their many roles in life. The new edition adds just the right stuff. It answers many of the questions I was asking as I read the first edition. I love the new chapter dedicated to coaching and leadership. This is one of the best coaching books you will ever read. Buy it. Read it. You won't regret it. - Alan Rathbun
This book changed the way I coach! I have read other books on coaching but Keith Webb's The COACH Model for Christian Leaders has given me a clear, concise and effective model for my coaching. I have relied heavily on the practical instruction and helpful advice that seems to come through on every page. Key to any coaching conversation is "asking thoughtful questions" and Keith provides dozens of questions that I use in nearly every coaching conversation. I highly recommend purchasing this book and pursuing the live COACH training that Keith Webb's organizations provides. In both the book and the training you will learn to use the COACH model (Connect, Outcome, Awareness, Course, and Highlights) in any coaching conversation. My experience with the COACH model is that it works - and works very well. The COACH Model may not be the only coaching book on my shelf but it is certainly my most used. - Joe Donaldson
