The Leader's Journey: A Guide to Discovering the Leader Within

By Dr. Artika R Tyner

CHICAGO,July 1, 2015 —Leadership is a journey often mistaken for a destination.  The American Bar Association’s newest release, The Leader’s Journey: A Guide to Discovering the Leader Within provides guidance and inspiration for that journey. Reading this book will provide the reader with inspiration on how to lead effectively, build new bridges, and establish a vision for the future. This is the foundation of leadership growth. In three parts the book explores core values of leadership and how these values inform your understanding of leadership. This is the beginning of “knowing.”

Part 1: Leading Change—Planting People, Growing Justice (Why Lead?)

This section focuses on your personal mission and vision. Since leadership is about influence, this section explores how you can influence change in the global community, organizations, professional associations, and beyond.

Part 2: Your Leadership Qualities (What Makes You a Leader?)

This section provides key insights on core competencies of leadership. Effective leadership requires developing the necessary tools to lead change.

Part 3: Your Leadership DNA (What Is Your Individualized Leadership Style?)

This section offers an opportunity for critical reflection by exploring your individualized approach to leadership. It provides an introduction to an array of leadership styles in order to gain insights on how you lead best.

This collection of quotes serves as a source of inspiration and guidance on your leadership journey. Each quote functions as a critical reflection tool. As you take the time and reflect on each quote, you will gain new insights. This type of reflection provides an opportunity for you to strengthen your leadership skills and share these lessons with others.
