    Deepening The Leadership Journey is a compendium of topical (and in some cases imponderable) situations for which leadership is either applicable or in need.

    This new book uses the nine elements in application to five challenges facing the current generation of leaders: making good decisions in an increasingly complex world; motivating and retaining a qualified workforce; equality and a truly diverse and inclusive workplace; cultivating a positive organizational culture; and thriving in a digital world.

    Intended for personal leadership development and practicing managers as well as courses on leadership, this approachable guide deepens the reader’s leadership journey based on Al Bolea's "J-Curve" model of leadership and the nine essential elements of leadership mastery introduced in Becoming A Leader.
