The Leadership Challenge: How to Make Extraordinary Things Happen in Organizations
by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner
"The Leadership Challenge is still popular and relevant after 25 years for a reason: it is a classic. No one provides more practical real-world advice than Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner. This is the book on leadership that I recommend to all of my clients, and I think this is the greatest book on leadership ever written."
"This is perhaps the most comprehensive field guide ever written for leaders. It has been a key part of my personal journey as a leader for years."
"Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner have done it again! In this all-new fifth edition of The Leadership Challenge—the bible for leaders everywhere—they have taken their leadership ideas to new heights, befitting of the challenges leaders face in this global era."
"No book has ever chronicled the practices of true leadership better than The Leadership Challenge, and this updated edition deftly outlines how to be a phenomenal leader in the 21st century."
"Now in its fifth edition, The Leadership Challenge has stood the test of time for good reason: it's quite simply one of the best books you'll ever read on leadership."
"I read The Leadership Challenge as a new manager building Oracle University and was deeply affected by it. It shaped me as a leader and influenced my career. Reading the fifth edition twenty years later, I am struck by how its wisdom stands the test of time while also providing fresh, relevant insights for leading at your best and mobilizing others to achieve the extraordinary."
"The Leadership Challenge remains one of the five best books I have ever read. Twenty-five years after its first publication, I still continually recommend it to others looking to improve as leaders."
