One Of Our Favorite Books Revised and Expanded

It’s no secret that one of my favorite coaching books is Dr. Keith Webb’s, The COACH Model for Christian Leaders.

Over the years, I’ve posted 8 excerpts from Keith’s book. With the new revised & expanded edition, Keith allowed us to update these posts with the latest text.

Keith is offering exclusive bonuses until October 15, 2019 if you pre-order his new book. Check out the book and the bonuses here.

  1. Moving from Your Ideas to Theirs – We all have ideas pop into our heads, which is why we are disposed to give people advise. In this article Keith share’s a technique to move from your ideas to theirs through questions.
  2. Raise Awareness by Not Giving Feedback – Feedback is necessary. Keith shows how to move from giving feedback, to generating feedback through questions.
  3. Why Knowledge is a Thing of the Past – When you share knowledge, you’re sharing what is known. When you ask questions, you have a chance to generate new, future possibilities.
  4. Learning Without Teaching – Teaching and learn are two very different things. Keith makes a case for learning without teaching.
  5. Determining the Conversation Outcome – How you begin a conversation determines where you’ll end up. Don’t just wonder through a conversation hoping to get to something significant, use this technique to begin with the end in mind.
  6. Sharpen the Outcome – Exploring is essential in coaching. The more exploration you do when determining the direction of a conversation, the more relevant it will become.
  7. Share Questions – Not Content – For some reason, we think that to be helpful we need to say something, to share some bit of advice or encouragement. Instead, try asking questions.
  8. Asking Questions From Different Angles – We all think along consistent lines of thought. In order to broaden perspective, learn to ask questions from many different angles, not just your favorites.
