Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

ACTIVE Learning for Exemplary Leaders

The best leaders are the best learners. This evidence-based truth has been a foundational principle of The Leadership Challenge since it was first published nearly twenty-five years ago. In this new work, bestselling Leadership Challenge authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner team up with experiential learning expert Elaine Biech to bring today's leaders over 100 engaging activities designed to expand and accelerate their leadership development efforts.

Grounded in The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® model, The Leadership Challenge Activities Book includes tools, tips, and techniques for extraordinary training delivery; suggestions for activity facilitation; an overview of The Five Practices model; and a broad selection of activities for each of The Five Practices (Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart) as well as several general leadership skills activities.

World-class contributors to this unique volume include Jean Barbazette, Geoff Bellman, Daryl Conner, Ann Hermann-Nehdi, Beverly Kaye, Lou Russell, Cal Wick as well as a selection of Leadership Challenge Certified Masters. While primarily designed for classroom training sessions, the activities can easily be adapted for one-on-one coaching situations (including LPI feedback coaching), educational classroom settings, or web-based learning sessions. A companion website features the handouts and worksheets associated with some activities, which can be reproduced and customized.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a fan of the Kouzes and Posner models, and the Leadership Challenge specifically. But I can't believe I wasted 40 bucks on this book of "activities." Hidden in the 106 exercises are a couple of gems. However, most of them follow the pattern of create a small group, ask these 3 questions, report out, and record what you learned. The book seems impressive in its size but it's written in a huge font. The authors of each exercise, their bios and their contact info take up a sizable chunk of the book. Seems like shameless advertising to me. If I had never attended or a facilitated a team offsite before, I might have learned something. This book is way too basic and does not do any justice to the fine work of Kouzes and Posner.
