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.

    I wasn't taking out my notepad for this one. No real practical, tangible items that I can add to the "how to be a great coach" list in my day timer. Jesus is the best life coach - pull out the bible, you can find that out pretty quick. I was hoping to get some of the verses & concepts extracted and summarized in this audio book, but that wasn't really the case. The writer has some great stories that can relate to anyone - so if you need to be motivated, get this book! I like the part about focus. The concept, which I already knew, hit home when read - so it was a good reminder.

    This audiobook has many good stories, but it suffers from too many stories and not enough content. It sounds more like a devotional book rather than a helpful guide to coaching using Jesus as a model.
