Editorial Reviews


Accomplishes in 37 short chapters what a whole volume of MBA texts cannot tell you: leadership is a life-long process. -- Book Page, October 2000

Stories are heartfelt and self-revealing. They all deliver an elbow to the reader's ribs. -- CIO Magazine, November 15, 2000

From the Publisher

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; author of A Safe Place for Dangerous Truths and Territorial Games AFTERWORD: The Power of Stories, by Richard Stone

Learning Journeys is such a pleasant book to read. This book is personal. It¹s personal essays by some of the great management and business leaders in the world. In the book, these leaders reveal the life-changing events of their lives. There are some sad stories, some funny stories, and some spiritual stories: some of the stories are business-related and some are totally personal. What struck me so much about this book is that it reveals the human side of business, something that is so often forgotten.

This book is wonderful! It reminds me of "Chicken Soup for the Soul". It touches your heart and inspires at the same time. You get to see "turning points" in the lives of real people. But not just any real people, these people are among the most successful people in the world.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Michael Erisman on May 9, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book to read, and can be picked up and read through in a sitting or taken in small sections. The book contains 37 two to three page essays by some of the best and most well known of human resources and organizational leaders and pioneers. From Stephen Cover to Dave Ulrich, from Marshall Goldsmith to Robert Eichenger, these individuals have done much to shape current thought in the areas of organizational development and leadership.
The book is divided into eight different categories, including what were in my opinion the most insightful; "Unlearning what you thought was so", "Pain is a great teacher", and "Seeing yourself as others do". What makes this such an interesting read is that all these short essays within the eight topic areas reflect very personal insights into the people themselves. What events helped them learn and grow, what successes, or failures, helped them become who they are today?
We are given a rare glimpse into some very real personal experiences, in which we all can relate on some level. I was struck time and again at just how "normal" these leaders are, and behind the names, the publications, and the prestige of being well known and a leader in your field, are some remarkable stories of struggle and perseverance.
Highly recommended, but not for the organizational wisdom or business tips, but rather for the humanity and depth of the personal testimonies. We can all benefit from the wisdom of others whose own lessons learned can be encouraging and timely regardless of where you may be on your own journey.

I LOVE this book! Today I opened it, looking for a quote, and was reminded of all the inspirational stories from great business leaders that I had read two years ago. My copy is dog-eared, written in, highlighted, and entire sections folded over to find quickly.

This collection of leaders' own life lessons is a wonderful resource that not only shares their insights, but plants the seeds for your own with plenty of reflective questions at the end of each journey (chapter).

A terrific read!
