It was during the second half of his tenure at Coke that a transformation took place. A radical shift happened in his heart, and it changed him, his perspective on how he did his job, and it changed those around him.
In this podcast, we’ll hear about Preston’s work background, his perspective shift that occurred, and his thoughts about how we can live out our faith in the workplace.
If you’re in leadership, if you’re an Enneagram 3, or if you’re wondering how faith gets lived out in our workplaces, then this is the conversation for you.

Discipled Leader: Inspiration from a Fortune 500 Executive for Transforming Your Workplace by Pursuing Christ
“A must-read for every leader.”
–Dan T. Cathy, Chairman and CEO at Chick-fil-A, Inc.
Preston Poore has spent decades in corporate America. Despite all the excellent advice he was given for growing in leadership, there was something missing: a way to bring his Christian beliefs to bear in his professional life, not just his personal life. So Preston sought his own answer to how his faith could impact his management of hundreds of employees.
What he discovered was this: the first step wasn’t adjusting his leadership style. Instead, he needed to let God change him before he could effect real change in his workplace. And in order to model discipleship to his team, he needed to first be discipled by the Spirit. Here, in the day-to-day practice of being a disciple of Jesus Christ, Poore found where his faith and exceptional leadership intersect.
Through personal stories, biblical principles, and hands-on workplace guidance, Poore offers readers a unique look at this seldom-discussed connection. He challenges struggling leaders to engage in the hard work of daily discipleship. And he charges experienced leaders to return to the fundamentals of their faith, encouraging them to disciple other Christians with leadership potential.
For anyone wrestling with how to bring faith to the workplace, whether it be a cubicle or a boardroom, Discipled Leader reveals that leadership doesn’t begin behind the desk–it begins in the soul.
