The analogy to the journey Julian often refers his clients to is the epic poem The Odyssey by Homer. The story of the trials of Odysseus as he tries to get home and the challenges once home is an analogy for all our lives. It is no different for the modern day leader. It is a life-long journey and if you as a leader are not growing (just like all living things) you are dying. The Managerial Leadership Journey is about that journey. Each of its chapters represents a milepost along the way. But no sooner do you get to the end than you have to start again. In the spirit of continuous improvement just as you practice it you keep practicing before. Each situation and moment may look the same but there is learning from each. It truly is a journey.
