Christian Coaching by Gary R. Collins
Christian Coaching is a great jumpstart for those who want to make a career out of coaching. In this book, Gary Collins gives lots of practical insights on coaching people and includes biblical principles in his discussion. While the book may seem to be written for those who want to become professional, and Christian, coaches, it is also helpful to those who simply want to make coaching as their lifestyle—and that includes me.
From this book, I learned that while counseling focuses on issues of the past and on dealing with it, coaching focuses on the future—what the person wants to become.
