Can one book revolutionize your leadership? Pastor Jason Price thinks so. I had the privilege of working with Jason and his church for about a year as they walked through Reaching the Summit: Avoiding and Reversing Decline in the Church. Jason’s church, Cornerstone, Nicholasville, KY, was not necessarily in decline. However, they had fallen into some routines and knew some adjustments were needed. I am a coach. As I coached Jason and his team through that year, God began doing some amazing things in their midst. Here is some of Jason had to say at the close of our time together and after reading the book, Coaching: A Way of Leadership, A Way of Life. Be sure to read down to what learning these coaching techniques has done for his personal and professional life.
Reading this book, you will explore the two greatest fundamental practices of coaching. How many senses do you use when listening to others? Do you realize you can utilize all five senses to become a better listener? It is true, when you learn to listen with more than your ears, you will become a better listener, and a better communicator. You will become a more effective leader and coach. If you’re listening only with your ears, you’re missing the point.
You are asking the wrong questions! This is true in most every organization and casual conversation in society today. Have you ever considered the nature and purpose of a question? Learn these two characteristics and you will be on the road to formulating the right questions. Learn to ask questions leading to greater effectiveness.
