Jesus, Life Coach by Laurie Beth Jones
There was a time when only athletes had coaches. Now, everyone from CEOs to at-risk youth are being “coached.” The International Coaching Federation-which began with only a handful of people-now boasts membership of over 5,000, and currently more than 150,000 people call themselves “Life Coaches.” The benefits of coaching have been well documented, but having the right coach is critical. Jesus had only three years to train the twelve disciples, yet in that time he managed to turn this ragamuffin group into “lean, clean marketing machines.” Divided into four critical sections-Focus, Balance, Productivity, and Fulfillment-Jesus, Life Coach presents a faith-based coaching program with Jesus as the model. Delving into the principles Jesus used to transform those around him, the book offers proven strategies and countless applications for modern-day coaches.
