(2009)], it takes anywhere from 18 - 254 days to create a new habit or behavior. With this in mind whether you are a “seasoned” leader or just beginning your leadership journey, you will undoubtedly have leadership habits and behaviours that you value along with those you want to evolve, modify or completely change. The 99 Day Leadership Journey will get you started by guiding you through your next 99 days by way of writings and reflections aimed at enhancing, changing or creating powerful leadership behaviours. I encourage you to take your time as you work through your daily leadership reflections. It is the process itself, not the speed in which it is completed, that makes the difference. Challenge yourself to not just read the material, but to create a plan to do something different.
