Pouring into leaders – coaching them, encouraging them, empowering them, etc. is not easy, but it’s something I want to keep getting better at. Dave Ferguson recently posted an article at Christianity Today suggesting his six best questions for coaching others. I recently read a book Dave and Jon Ferguson co-wrote (Exponential) in which there was more in-depth discussion of coaching leaders. Here are the six questions from the article (not too long, worth the read):
1) How are you doing?
2) Where are you winning?
3) What are your challenges?
4) What are you doing about it?
5) How can I help you?
6) How can I pray for you?
What do you think? Questions that would be helpful to add in? Any questions above you think miss the point?
