Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Learning Journeys presents a message about the power of learning in the race for success, with personal stories from prominent management thinkers and change agents. It offers lessons reflecting key learning moments in life and career. Presenting thirty-seven provocative essays, most written expressly for this book, Learning Journeys offers rich lessons on learning to lead, overcoming setbacks, becoming open to change, mentoring, developing self-awareness, and more.
Each essay includes questions for reflection to help readers apply the lessons learned to their own lives and careers. The book also offers suggestions for using the stories in training workshops and ideas for making more effective use of your own and others' stories in mentoring and leading.
A main selection of the Doubleday Executive Program book club.
Learning Journeys makes the power of storytelling come alive. These stories need to be told--and must be told--but more importantly, they should be shared in corporations throughout the world to enhance leadership and management. The stories alone are worth the price of the book, but the exercises and implementation ideas make this book invaluable.
—Jimmy Neil Smith, President, Storytelling Foundation International
To reflect the wisdom in these pages, this book should be embossed with gold, wrapped in silk, and kept in a box of the finest mahogany--it is that valuable.
—Annette Simmons, President, Group Process Consulting
