The value of coaching is huge in life and in leadership. I have personally gleaned a great deal from coaches that have poured into my leadership journey. But perhaps the greatest coaching I ever received was from a co-worker who helped me discover my purpose in life.

This careful coaching was framed around a passage of scripture in Ephesians 2:10: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” That coaching took place more than 15 years ago, but it has shaped my life, leadership and career path in undeniable ways. When I wrote Do Good Works: Am I Doing What I Was Made to Do? I set out on a journey to help others awaken the “good works” God created them to do. But my hope was also much greater. I wanted to develop a tool that mentors, coaches and leaders could use as a coaching roadmap to help friends, co-workers and mentees discover their God-given purpose. That’s part of the reason Do Good Works includes the Good Works Journal in the back of the book. This simple tool provides a pathway to foster great conversations, and to help the person you are coaching identify the 10 pieces of the Good Works Puzzle. If you’re looking for a new book to discuss with a team you are leading, or if you’re mentoring someone through a one-on-one coaching relationship, check out Do Good Works. Here are what a few others leaders are saying about Do Good Works:
