This week Jeff Henderson released his new book, What To Do Next: Taking Your Best Step When Life Is Uncertain, and I cannot recommend it highly enough! It’s such a great read, with such insightful and applicable content.
From the book description:
If you want to change your career and circumstances but aren’t sure how, this practical guide from business leader Jeff Henderson will help you reevaluate your purpose and determine your next best step.
Navigating what’s next in life–whether in your career, personal life, or relationships–often brings a level of uncertainty and anxiety and presents more questions than answers. Entrepreneur, speaker, and pastor Jeff Henderson has experienced this firsthand–first when he left his marketing position at Chick-fil-A to start a church and nonprofit, and then again when he left that nonprofit in the middle of a global pandemic to . . . well, he didn’t know. He just knew he needed to make a move.
This insightful book outlines the process he used to determine the next best step for him and how you, too, can pursue more meaning and purpose in your life and work. Sharing personal stories and best practices he’s learned along the way, he eloquently and practically guides you through the minefield of knowing what’s next by helping you:
- Take the Career Risk Calculator and discover if you’re ready for change
- Plan for change–both the changes you want and the changes you can’t see coming
- Cultivate “optimal options” in your life that will guide you to better decision-making when the time comes
- Identify what to do and what not to do when making decisions about what’s next
- Exchange fear, confusion, and hopelessness for confidence, freedom, and purpose
Jeff’s writing style is so conversational and smooth, and his insights have been forged in his business, church, and non-profit leadership experience. Having quit his job during the middle of the pandemic, he is speaking from first hand experience about learning to discern what’s next. The tools are easy to use, practical, and effective. This will be a go to for me as I coach my clients around discerning transition next steps, no matter their field.
Grab a copy and invite Jeff to speak some wisdom into your life or that of someone you know who’s in or thinking about transition. You’ll find this resource to be well worth the time.
