The world needs leaders that can take us to a bright future.
But it’s a new day, and we need a better way to learn leadership.
At today’s pace, we can’t wait that long.
What are the new rules of leadership?
- Leadership is a separate career path unlike any other.
- Leadership is action, not words and fancy phrases.
- You won’t get there by following other people. You have to chart your own course.
You need to learn how to navigate today’s organizational terrain.
So, can you learn leadership from a book?
The answer is no.
However, there is a very specific path that all great leaders take – and by traveling this path, you can learn leadership. And this is what A Journey of Epiphanies is about. It is a guide that shows you the path by which you can become an inspirational leader.
A Journey of Epiphanies lays out the path all great leaders take.
You need an epiphany.
Epiphanies are “… sudden, intuitive perceptions or insights into the reality or essential meaning of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience.”
A Journey of Epiphanies … leadership decoded.
Every group needs a leader.
In fact, where there is no leader, someone assumes the role by default. There are time-worn methods for identifying and training people to take leadership roles which, more often than not, fail miserably. The reason is that leadership is about inspiring people, and that is a very different skill than is developed in other professions. A Journey of Epiphanies: Learning Leadership explores the five specific realizations, or epiphanies, that must be experienced for a leader to affect organizational environments and inspire people to come together, commit, and achieve great things.
“More organizations define leaders by their influence, not their rank or position.”

Being able to influence is critical because…
Every group has a performance curve.
Some are steep; others are not. What affects the performance of an organization and how leaders can influence and sustain performance over time is what the leadership epiphanies can address. A Journey of Epiphanies: Learning Leadership is an in-depth look at the path to leadership, but it also examines why organizations behave the way they do. It can help you understand and diagnose what is going on in your organization so you can take steps to change the environment. Investing in leadership is the quickest and best way to get where you’re going.
