The Journey to Greatness
And How to Get There!Book - 2009
There is no greater challenge in any of our lives than the opportunity to become as great as we might yet be. The Journey to Greatness introduces the components that one encounters along the journey to greatness and the realization that this is a journey for all of us, each in our own way. Noah benShea explores what constitutes greatness, highlights all the way stations that we may all encounter on our own unique journeys, and aligns the journey to leadership and learning. Organized topically around ′doors′ or stops along the way, this book first challenges readers to identify the areas in which they have strengths and weakness, encouraging the reader to work through the book accordingly. ′Doors′ include the following: Knowing little/fearObservation and self-witnessingLearningResponsibilityCommunicationCulture and climateChange and resiliency,Personal growthEmpowermentHandling adversityEmbracing opportunity, among othersbenShea concludes by encouraging the reader to celebrate achieving the journey to greatness, but not to presume that learning ever stops or the journey ever ends. ′Greatness is like the horizonùit retreats as you approach it.′ Greatness, too, is more how we travel than where we travelùa process, not an arrival.
