Coaching Questions: A Coach's Guide to Powerful Asking Skills$14.99 USD $19.49 USD
Most coach training focuses on working with the rational mind using practical tools like goals, options and actions. The Invitation opens up a whole new realm by showing you how to work with the emotional side of the brain. Most behavior actually originates there, in our deep desires for things like love, belonging, significance or approval. When these desires are unmet, they spawn guardian beliefs and emotional memories we use to protect our heart from further harm. But these same masks and defenses are what become our greatest obstacles to living abundantly.
Jesus' way of heart change doesn't focus on fixing the problem, but on filling the unmet desires that caused it. (See James chapter 4 for a succinct explanation). Jesus' way does not depend on self-discipline or effort, but on encountering Him--and you can do it right in the midst of a coaching conversation. It's an incredibly beautiful, positive and powerful way to work at transformation. This book includes tools like:

"I just wanted to take the times to share a moment I had this morning while reading The Invitation. At the end of chapter 1 you have an exercise where you see if any beliefs sound familiar. Since I am a recovering rational 'good Christian' thinker this was a bit challenging as my mind started in with 'eh, I don't think these apply' when #7 kind of hit me. So, when you said to take the belief to Jesus, I did so almost half-heartedly. As I closed my eyes and asked Jesus what he thought about my belief that I cannot have the relationship like others do with Him, after a moment I heard Him. He told me he wants a relationship with me that cannot compare and surpasses what I see (or think I see) in His relationship with others. It made me tear up and realize that time looking and comparing is wasted time, time I could spend getting to know Him and better understand His love for me. And man, this is just chapter 1!?! Just had to share and say thank you."
