    Love this idea conceptually. Practically–how do I find someone willing to do this?

    1. Bob can I share “truth” via my personal experience? Your friends and colleagues are more willing to do this than you are willing to ask! Simply forward this post to one of them at a time and ask if they would be willing to meet with you weekly to ask you these three questions? I am betting that you will have to send out no more than two e-mails. Will you please let me know how it goes?

    Wow! Thanks Bob! This email about coaching is really on time, as on July I will be attending a coaching retreat provided by Malaysia Campus Crusade for Christ. I think all I need is a willing and humble heart to be coach by others. I tend to be lone ranger most of the time and have really suffer from the consequence (Promise to do something but didn’t do it). Bob, do you have any suggestion for me so that I can be more prepare for the retreat?

    1. Dear Dickson (or is your name Choogvoon?) My Pleasure! You are absolutely correct that willingness and humility are foundational to being coached. You might also want to understand and prepare for the reality that in “Coaching” the “Coachee” (you) set the agenda on what topics you would like to focus each coaching appointment on. This is very different from being “Mentored” where the “Mentor” sets the agenda. So begin to think about your Goals/Challenges/Projects that you would like to focus on with your coach. Two more ideas for you: When you are on my blog: http://www.leadingwithquestions.com you can curser down to see all my earlier posts. In particular I would suggest for you to read: https://leadingwithquestions.com/2012/07/09/how-can-you-more-effectively-coach-others/ Second please take a look at the presentation I did for Josh McDowell’s Young Communicators Summit, “Communicating with Questions” go to my website: http://www.thetiedes.cccministry.org, then click on “Leadership Development Resources” on the upper left and once there – curser down to “Communicating with Questions” Please let me know how your Coaching Retreat goes? Thanks.
