"Why do so many people fail to transform their lives, organizations or the world in the way they intend? And what can we pass on to them to light their way to the stars?" These questions summarize the inspiration and purpose of "The Vision and the Journey." The book tells a humorous fictional story that walks you through the initial steps and experience of life and business transformation using a "Map of the Journey" and 23 "Notes." In the story, a business empire has transformed a community with a humble Vision into the microcosm of a better world - and a business success. Deverall Randall inherits the empire and wants to repeat the Vision, but does not know the secret to its success. His partner, Carrick Garvey, has become a legend for leading the long Journey to the Vision, but at high cost to his personal life. Deverall needs Carrick to repeat the Vision and the Journey, but Carrick wants to retire and get a life! A mysterious colleague, the stunning Anastasia Greer, guides the partners to solve their dilemma . . . while quietly continuing the Journey to an ancient Big Vision and the stars. Chapter by chapter, the heroes walk through the steps to creating the Vision and initiating the Journey, including outsmarting villains and the "Me2 Club" to start the Journey on its way. In so doing, they illustrate what a successful transformation should look like - a Journey of discovery in search of a Vision that may not be clear at the start. "The Vision and the Journey" is an introduction to transformation that focuses on the most critical stage of the Journey - from creation of the Vision to "Hilltop Three" (the point where one has all capabilities needed to complete the Journey). The author, Angela M. Remedios, is a transformation professional and business engineer who has guided clients to reinvent their lives, businesses, and organizations, with outstanding results. The Vision and Journey system illustrated in this book applies methods she invented and perfected over a 30 year career.
