The Journey of Not Knowing

The Journey of Not Knowing is a fast paced, entertaining read that gets to the heart of a critical state in today’s business climate and society overall: the constantly changing, ambiguous 21st Century and the uncharted waters ahead. This book will inspire leaders of any size organization to come to grips with the scariness of the unknown. It advances a new approach to leadership that leverages the discomfort of the new as a source of inspiration rather than a deterrent to building a better future. It received a 2016 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Silver Medal for Business & Economics and a 2017 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal.
