|1 A comparative statistical analysis on the educational system in European countries : An economic perspective, Ramona Bir?u, Ph.D.
The main aim of this research article is to provide a comparative statistical analysis on the educational system in European countries in order to emphasize an economic perspective. In recent past, the rather regressive behavior of educational systems represents one of the social issues of great interest. The decline in educational systems is the fundamental root of unemployment and therefore of poverty. The negative impact of structural deficiencies in the educational system spread especially in the medium and long-term horizons. Nevertheless, a viable educational system significantly contributes in achieving sustainable economic growth, stability, gender equality and poverty reduction. Moreover, as a large-scale approach, the absence of a proper education in combination with other dynamic social mechanisms lead to forming an uncertain macroeconomic climate.

|3 The Biblical Perspective of Coaching & Mentoring, Dr.Vijetha Mukkelli
The coaching relationship is performance focused; concentrating on what the learner wants to learn. It's, therefore, important to match the manager with a coach who has expertise in the relevant areas. Mentoring is a broader term describing the process of helping a man or woman realizes his or her potential in every pursuit: of spiritual, vocational, organizational and relational. The processes of coaching and mentoring involve the coach/mentor in guiding the learner towards goals. The coach/mentor is also alert for when the learner has missed the point or is avoiding an issue, or feels inadequate at some tasks. Coaching relates primarily to performance improvement in a specific skills area. Mentoring relates primarily to the identification and nurturing of potential for the whole person. It can be a long-term relationship, where the goals may change but are always set by the learner. Coaching often serves as a stand-alone strategy for developing leaders or as one of several fundamental building blocks within leadership development programs. The Gospels suggest that one of Jesus? top leadership priorities was developing other leaders?who themselves were capable of forming new generations of leaders. Leadership replication and multiplication characterized Jesus? ministry, making possible the exponential growth of the early Christian movement as evidenced in Acts and the Epistles. This paper discusses the role of coaching and mentoring in leadership development and the way Jesus Christ used these aspects in developing second line leadership. The basis for the paper is the PhD thesis of the author.
