From the Back Cover

THE MOST TRUSTED SOURCE ON BECOMING A BETTER LEADER

"The best leaders are constantly learning. They see all experiences as learning experiences. But there’s a catch. Unexamined experiences don’t produce rich insights that come from reflection and analysis."
—from the Introduction

Based on Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner’s classic book The Leadership Challenge, this Workbook will be a hands-on guide for improving your ability to put into action the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership model and become a leader who Models the Way, Inspires a Shared Vision, Challenges the Process, Enables Others to Act, and Encourages the Heart.

The Workbook’s easy-to-use worksheets make efficient planning simple and practical and supports your success in three ways:

  • Reflection: Think about your approach to leadership and become more conscious about how well you engage in each of the Practices.
  • Application: Apply the Practices and commitments to all your projects.
  • Implications: Record what you’ve learned about yourself, your team, your organization, and your project.

Develop your leadership potential with The Leadership Challenge Workbook!

Format: Paperback
We're using Kouzes & Posner's "The Leadership Challenge" book (among others) in our MBA Leadership and Management Processes class. This workbook, although not required, should be. There are lots of checklists, worksheets, questionaires, etc. that lead you through applying the concepts presented in the book.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 8, 2007
Format: Paperback
Although there has been a more recent edition of The Leadership Challenge published (in 2007) since this Workbook appeared (in 2003), the core concepts remain the same, guiding and informing the series of exercises provided in it. Specifically what James Kouzes and Barry Posner characterize as "The Five Practices" of exemplary leadership, requires two commitments. For example, Challenge the Process by searching for opportunities (i.e. seek innovative ways to change, grow, and improve) and experimenting with calculated risks (i.e. constantly generate "small wins" and learn from every mistake). As Kouzes and Posner have by now clearly indicated in their collaborations, they are relentless empiricists and diehard pragmatists. Their observations and suggestions are driven by more then 30 years of rigorous research that includes hundreds of interviews of leaders and several million responses to various surveys. After briefly identifying the "what" of effective leadership, they devote most of their attention to its "how."

How did Don Bennett, the first amputee to climb Mt. Rainier (elevation 14,410 feet), get to the top on one leg and two crutches? "One hop at a time." Kouzes and Posner suggest that the same process be followed by those who aspire to be exemplary leaders.

They note that work tends to be organized in terms of projects because projects "create the context for our goals, determine with whom we work, and set our schedules." That said, on pages 6 and 7, they offer several guidelines for completing this workbook. Depending on the reader's given project or situation,

1. "If you're just starting, we recommend that you begin with Chapter 4...and work your way through Chapter 8."

I am getting my Masters degree and this was a required workbook for one of my classes. It is a very useful and insightful book. I will be keeping this for future use. It has great areas for reflection and tips and pointers on how to be a great leader. I won't be selling this book back.
