The Art of Journaling and Reflective Leadership

A lifelong curiosity in learning and teaching led me to journaling as a deliberate process to accelerate my insights through detailed recording of ideas and reflection upon their significance. Over twenty years, my passion for journaling grew and I saw how my reflections and learnings could amplify and heighten my expertise in Leadership Development. The recorded contents of sixty-eight journals in the past twenty years has allowed me to find innovative ways to help other leaders achieve their own leadership goals and ambitions. This book explains and explores the FOUR LOOP process of Recording, Reflecting, Acting, and Sharing. This process evokes personal growth and emphasizes the importance of sharing thoughts and building ideas. I've spent many years experimenting and mastering the best ways to share my journaling methodology to teach and mentor professionals how to use this simple process to become a better leader. The journals continue to evolve as I pursue my mission of helping leaders grow and develop the skills to succeed. The book contains over 100 lessons on leadership and life extracted from the compendium of journal knowledge you see above. I hope you enjoy the book and find new perspectives that can help you become an even better leader! Happy Journaling!
