The following are the recommended study materials for your Personal Growth and Leadership Journey. These are materials that helped me learn and better understand the principles and concepts that I needed to master.

Some of you learn best by reading, some by listening and yet others by writing. You may be one of these or a combination of two or even all three. You need to know yourself to be most effective in your learning in order to maximize the process.

The first thing you will need is at least one Journal that you can use to record what you learned and your reflections along with a writing instrument that you really enjoy using.

The second thing you will need is a planner, paper or electronic. Do some research to find what works for you. Keep in mind that the more you are able to multitask this tool the more you can maximize its benefits.
