From the Back Cover
Based on the best-selling book, The Leadership Challenge and backed by over 25 years of original research, The Leadership is Everyone's Business® Workshop is a unique and intense discovery process created by best-selling authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner. The Workshop demystifies the concept of leadership and approaches it as a learnable set of behaviors. In other words, forget about job titles, forget about position or rank or work experience. Leadership is about what you do.
This revised edition of Leadership is Everyone's Business Facilitator's Guide is designed to be used with individual who contribute—that is people in organizations who have the capacity to lead and influence others, but don't have formal management responsibilities.

In this Workshop, Kouzes and Posner introduce individual contributors to The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®:
- Model the Way

- Challenge the Process
- Enable Others to Act
- Encourage the Heart
