The Leader’s Journey: A Guide to Discovering the Leader Within


Your Leadership Compass: Leaders must be willing to understand where they have been in order to know where they are headed.

~ Dr. Artika Tyner



Leadership is a journey often mistaken for a destination. The Leader’s Journey: A Guide to Discovering the Leader Within provides guidance and inspiration for that journey. Reading this book will provide the reader with inspiration on how to lead effectively, build new bridges, and establish a vision for the future. This is the foundation of leadership growth. In three parts, the book explores core values of leadership and how these values inform your understanding of leadership. This is the beginning of “knowing.”


This collection of quotes serves as a source of inspiration and guidance on your leadership journey. Each quote functions as a critical reflection tool. As you take the time and reflect on each quote, you will gain new insights. This type of reflection provides an opportunity for you to strengthen your leadership skills and share these lessons with others.


The book is a viable seed of social justice in form of ideas to awaken ‘the sleeping leaders within.’ Her main accomplishment in this masterpiece has been to synthesize the gem thoughts of key thinkers in a reader-friendly fashion.
