Discussion questions:

1) What would say were the differences between coaching, mentoring and counseling? Which have you experienced and which would you find most helpful right now?

2) Think about something you are working towards now. What is your main motivation? Can you identify unhealthy and healthy motivations?

3) When you lead others are you good as getting them to take responsibility for their actions by asking questions to empower them or do you naturally default to teaching and telling them what they should be doing? What steps could you take to better empower others?
