About the Book
A handful of great leaders were born with something innate that made them inspirational and amazing. The rest of us? We have to struggle and learn through our failures. Perhaps we're able to learn from mentors along the way. This book is designed to help you figure out what you want to be as a leader, and how to help yourself inspire and motivate awesome, highly effective teams.
What makes this book different from other leadership books? Well, me, frankly. I've piled up some unique experiences working in various roles from the military through Cub Scouts. This book gathers up those experiences and lessons learned, and adds in practical exercises to help you focus on discovering and building your own leadership style.
This book also contains my Leadership 101 series from my blog at FrazzledDad.com.
Managing Director, Excelon Development
In the five years I have known Jim, I have hired him, handed accounts to him, collaborated with him on a crazy project that I was only willing to do because I trusted him. In that time, I have come to trust him as a brother and respect his judgement. If you want an introductory book about leadership that is more than cliches, provides actionable information, and actually makes you think, then you want The Leadership Journey. His advice on "do something awesome" alone is worth the asking price.

In The Leadership Journey, Jim has captured an honest, practical, and no-frills essence of the difference between people who call themselves leaders, and those who can actually walk the walk. In addition to numerous examples, Jim includes simple and helpful exercises to help readers begin and continue their own leadership journey, and he includes plenty of pointers to additional reading for those thirsty for more knowledge. Truly a must have for anyone looking to develop and grow as a leader.
I have had the very good fortune to work with Jim Holmes for more than a decade. In that time, I have always admired his ability to lead – to created stewardships of responsibility for others that help them to be successful and at the same time become better leaders themselves. To this day, any time I can spend with Jim makes me a better leader – and he can help you too!
"Jim is a man of character and competence, with wisdom beyond his years. He is a true servant leader. His brilliance, coupled with his passion to deliver value creates growth and adds value to any team. I learn something from Jim every time we interact. He stands out as a notable leader and influencer of this age."
