The Calling Journey fills a vital need for coaches by mapping out the progression of stages and transitions God moves us through on the road to our call. This path includes predictable mountains to scale and painful, disorienting valleys all leaders must navigate to fulfill their destiny. Each stage has a unique growth agenda, and Tony shows how to coach each stage differently to line up with what God is doing in that season.

Filled with examples from the lives of biblical and contemporary leaders and overflowing with insight on how God works through our circumstances, The Calling Journey will provide a powerful perspective on your own journey and a great set of tools to work with those you coach.
