The Churning is built around a core of personal development tools and exercises, in Chapters 4, 5, and 6 of inner leadership.
Chapter 4 of inner leadership helps you get clear on what it would take for you to have lived a worthwhile life.
Chapter 5 enables you to define an inspiring vision: your next step along the journey.
And Chapter 6 enables you to get clarity on your values and purpose, which tell you how you want to travel towards that vision, and why.
Coming before these, Chapter 1 provides tools to centre and ground yourself, and deepen your connection with yourself. Chapters 2 and 4 show you how to make objective sense of the situation you face and identify alternative courses of action.
After getting clear on the life you want to lead, your vision, purpose, and values, the final chapter of inner leadership prepares you for the inner challenges you will face on your journey forward.
Then outer leadership is a structured collection of tools and frameworks for implementing your vision.
