What is Four Loop Learning?



Four Loop Learning’s philosophy is that leaders who are more reflective are truly more effective. Our founder Bob Cancalosi discovered that deliberate reflection helps leaders slow down, think deeper and implement change with enhanced precision which results in greater impact results. The Four Loops of Record, Reflect, Act and Share is a proven process that accelerates the impact of business journaling.


Bob Cancalosi journals with one very simple goal – to share the knowledge with others to help them unlock more potential as they fulfill their own leadership ambitions. With 31 years of leadership experience at GE, and over 85 journals meticulously kept over the past 20 years, Bob brings the lessons he has learned—in life, and pursuits of leadership—and the tools to apply them with Four Loop Learning, a guide to leadership journaling.

During his tenure at GE, Bob served in the role as Chief Learning Officer for the Healthcare Business for 7 years with responsibility for the leadership development of 60,000 global employees. Then the last 8 years of his career he was the Leader of the GE Crotonville Global Customer Education team with responsibility for the leadership development of GE’s global strategic customers and training over 5,000 customer executives annually.
