JOIN MORE THAN A MILLION PEOPLE WHO HAVE TAKEN THE LEADERSHIP CHALLENGEPraise for The Leadership Challenge"Leadership books are a dime a dozen, and most don't last a week, let alone years. The Leadership Challenge has lasted because it is research-based, it is practical, and it has heart! Believe me, Jim and Barry have hard evidence for what we usually think of as a soft topic." -Tom Peters, management guru, founder, and chairman, Tom Peters Company, and author of In Search of Excellence"For all who lead others or aspire to lead others, The Leadership Challenge is the indispensable guidebook. Its vision and message inspire, engage, and motivate leaders of the future to lead the organization of the future, into a future no one can yet describe. Once again Kouzes and Posner provide the leadership resource exactly right for the challenges of our turbulent times." -Frances Hesselbein, chairman, Leader to Leader Institute; former CEO, Girl Scouts of the USA"Jim and Barry have done the most practical, comprehensive, and inspiring research on leadership that I have ever read. Instead of another version of 'celebrity leadership,' The Leadership Challenge helps us gain practical wisdom from real leaders at all levels in many types of organizations. Every leader can relate to the knowledge in this book!" -Marshall Goldsmith, best-selling author of What Got You Here Won't Get You There and one of Forbes' five top executive coaches"This is a wonderful book about people. Kouzes and Posner know that companies and organizations don't accomplish great things, people do! They use sound research, true principles, and interesting real-life stories to make their case, and they teach the specific skills that each of us needs to be good leaders and better people. Already read an earlier edition? Me too. Now go read it again." -David A. Petersen, president and CEO, O.C. Tanner Company
