I seldom do book reviews, but I feel so strongly that everyone who interacts with others - which includes everyone on earth - needs to read this book. Understanding the 100 questions Jesus asked can change your life - and the lives of those around you. And the fact that starting on Sunday, May 5 you can get it almost free (80% off during the pre-launch week) makes it easy to get it.
It is written by my friend and mentor, Dr. Joseph Umidi. Some of you may know him as a frequent speaker on our www.ChristianFinancialConcepts.com
Monday night Webinars. Others, like myself and tens of thousands of others worldwide, have taken his training in Transformational Coaching and become Certified Coaches. While I would certainly encourage anyone to take his course, if you are not called to be a coach you can learn much of what he teaches in this book.
In a sense all of us are coaches. Parents, teachers, pastor, professionals, foremen, employers, and leaders of all types coach others - whether it is one child or a whole congregation. The thing is, effective coaching is not what most think about when they hear the word: a football coach giving his team a rah-rah speech encouraging them to go out "and give it all for the team."
Effective coaching involves interaction. And what better way is there to encourage interaction and meaningful communication than asking questions? After all, that's what Jesus did. Of course, He preached to crowds. But in his interactions with individuals - and even small groups such as the Twelve - He asked questions, He listened to the answers, and He guided people to discover their own meaningful insights with more questions. That is so much more effective than telling people what to do.
In this book, you will learn to be an effective communicator that connects powerfully in family, workplace, community, and church conversations and relationships - without using religious language. You will discover how to meaningfully meet and network with new people, communicate across age barriers (boomer, millennial, generation "Z"), and improve parent-teen dialogues.
You will also increase your conversational intelligence, learn to craft significant questions for important meetings, accelerate your impact as an authentic communicator, listen to what really matters to the other, and ignite hearts at home and work - one conversation at a time. You can be the voice of Jesus to those around you.
Each chapter offers a personal or group study opportunity that can deepen your appreciation for the conversational coaching that was a major part of the biblical narrative.
