The Journey of Not Knowing is a fast-paced, entertaining book that gets to the heart of a critical state in today’s business climate and society overall: the constantly changing, ambiguous twenty-first century and the uncharted waters ahead. This book will inspire leaders of any size organization to come to grips with the scariness of the unknown while it advances a new approach to leadership that leverages the discomfort of the new as a powerful source of inspiration rather than a deterrent to building a better future.

Written by former Amazon executive, coach, and lawyer, Julie Benezet, the book combines storytelling, business experience, and human psychology to create a roadmap through the ambiguity of building something better in the context of the realities of humans in organizational life.
