Time to reflect. Space to dream. A place to find inspiration. In our hectic lives, these are often skipped, bumped by the next deadline or our out-of-control to-do list. Reminding us of the importance of personal introspection to leadership development, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner have created a journal for contemplation? a visible reminder of the need for time, space, and place along your leadership adventures.
The authors engage you in an internal dialogue guided by their Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership+ó model (Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, Encourage the Heart). They urge you to take notes, make comments, draw pictures, ask questions, contemplate answers, or just mediate.
