Since it was first published in 1987, The Leadership Challenge has become the gold-standard on becoming an exemplary leader. Well-grounded in research and written by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z.

Filled with deep insight into the complex interpersonal dynamics of mobilizing others to achieve shared aspirations, the sixth edition of the classic bestseller describes the practices that individuals must learn and the relationships that they must cultivate in order to engage constituents and create great workplaces.
Revised to address current challenges with updated cases, this edition includes numerous international examples and perspectives from a variety of disciplines and industries. The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®the model that Jim and Barry derived from studying personal-best leadership experiencescontinues to prove its validity as a clear, evidence-based path to achieving the extraordinary for individuals, teams, organizations, and communities. Real-life examples of the behaviors that all leaders at all levels demonstrate when they are at their personal best are provided, and the book clearly shows that leadership is not about personality; it's about an observable and learnable set of skills and abilities. The Leadership Challenge, Sixth Edition, turns the abstract concept of leadership into easy-to-grasp actions and behaviors that can be learned by anyone willing to step up and accept the challenge to lead.
