Publisher's Description

Business leadership coach Larry Julian helps readers navigate "the gray zone"-those make or break moments of decision making that are filled with uncertainty. There are times when intellectual and business logic are tested beyond one's perceived limits, when important decisions have no correct answers and can only be made by a leap of faith. Our true greatness lies within the gray. Julian shows readers that, with God's guidance, uncertainty is the very catalyst for making wise, impactful decisions that shape destinies. We learn to live and lead in the context of uncertainty rather than becoming paralyzed by it. GOD IS MY COACH is the means to living a significant life and to leading others in an uncertain world.

    The author of God is my CEO, Larry Julian, is out with another, practical guide for everyday living.While I think the titles of both books are poor, overly simplified descriptions of the Holy Father, there is plenty of good advice in God is My Coach.There is a tendency to reduce the Everlasting, Holy God to a personal Jesus. Why stop at God being a coach or a CEO? Lets make him our bowling partner or mechanic or interior designer. God has His role, His place in the world and if He is who He says He is, then I should not try to stretch his definition to something that is practical.Once you get past the title, youll find the book to be a practicum for an ordered way to a more effective life. Gods coaching abilities, according to Julian, include finding your creativity, nurturing your passion, giving you a calling and blessing you with relationships.Julian makes his living as a corporate management consultant, and the book reflects that. He is incredibly organized in his thoughts, as each chapter reads like a flowchart in novel form. He interviews a number of business leaders who are living out the God model of coaching including an executive at General Mills, a management consultant,His most effective interviews are with Os Guiness.I love the chapters devoted to Monty Sholund, a lifetime mentor of men who has 100s of relationships to his credit. As a coach, he lived out Christ in others, guiding, cajoling, instructing others. A true coach. The book was worth it just to read about Monty.My full review is found at the Red Letter Believers Blog -- www.redletterbelievers.com

    Eight of the most perplexing problems of our day are laid out in issue/solution form, with one chapter devoted to each, making this an easy-to-follow guide. Covered are: integrating a career with a calling, fulfilling potential, avoiding becoming stuck in circumstances, communicating faith, keeping pressure at bay, urgent work demands, the best work environment, and your legacy.Solutions are not always black and white, as the author explains, but sometimes gray. When a person finds himself in a "gray zone," his gifts can be discovered. This nonfiction work is filled with anecdotes to use to facilitate a successful Life Plan. Exercises are added to help identify and develop eight gifts. Included are the five E's of effective mentorship. Discussion Guide follows. Some repetition bogs the book down.

    I read quite a few business leadership books and very often I find that they are either too technical or full of platitudes. This one was different. Although there are a few platitudes, they are acknowledged as such and then delved into in order to find the nugget that will actually work for the average person. That was very refreshing. The book was easy to read and the chapters were short enough to finish in their own session and not so short as to leave you with the feeling that they weren't quite finished. I found the personal letter at the beginning a rather important piece and I would recommend that the reader definitely read it first before getting into the book. He explains his "grey zone" which is an ongoing theme throughout the book. I like the idea of focusing on the grey zone, it is one that I meet constantly in life. Mr. Julian has straight forward and illuminating ideas of how to function in the grey zone and not get lost.The books' chapters are divided into 8 gifts that God has given you and how you can find the unique reason God has placed you on this earth by learning about and using those 8 gifts in the manner that God wants you to use them. There is a section at the back that sets up exercises for you to engage in in order to discover what God's purpose for you is and how He has arranged for you to uniquely develop each of the eight gifts. We focus so often on the big decisions when in actuality God uses the little decisions to make a difference.This is great read, many good ideas written in such a way as to make one believe that they could actually implement them in their everyday world, turning their life experience into a more positive experience no matter where they lived or worked.
