This is a very in-depth book that challenges leaders to mobilize their people to get extraordinary things done in their organizations. The content is very digestible, intuitive, and compelling. It is called "The Leadership Challenge" for a reason: the chapters offer anecdotes and activities that challenge you to become the best leader you can be. They are quite good. Something as simple as, "Write Your Credo"--where it challenges you to write your own guiding principles as a leader--proved to be a valuable exercise for me. I like leadership books that offer intuitive content and at the same time teach me to apply what I'm reading. Another book I recommend that does this incredibly well is Leadership 2.0. But I digress, here's a summary of what's in "The Leadership Challenge": PART I. WHAT LEADERS DO AND WHAT CONSTITUENTS EXPECT 1. The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership: 1) Model the way 2) Inspire a shared vision 3) Challenge the process 4) Enable others to act 5) Encourage the heart 2. Credibility Is The Foundation of Leadership: For people to follow someone willingly, the majority of constituents believe the leader must be honest, forward-looking, inspiring, and competent. PART II. MODEL THE WAY 3. Clarify Values: Find your voice and affirm shared values. 4. Set the Example: Personify the shared values and teach others to model these values. PART III. INSPIRE A SHARED VISION 5. Envision the Future: Imagine the possibilities and find a common purpose. 6. Enlist Others: Appeal to common ideals and animate the vision. Part IV. CHALLENGE THE PROCESS 7. Search For Opportunities: Seize the initiative and exercise outsight. 8. Experiment and Take Risks: Generate small wins and learn from experience. Part V. ENABLE OTHERS TO ACT 9. Foster Collaboration: Create a climate of trust and facilitate relationships. 10. Strengthen Others: Enhance self-determination and develop competence and confidence. PART VI. ENCOURAGE THE HEART 11. Recognize Contributions: Expect the best and Personalize recognition. 12. Celebrate the Values and Victories: Create a spirit of community and Be personally involved. Part VII. LEADERSHIP FOR EVERYONE 13. Leadership Is Everyone's Business - You are the most important leader in your organization. - Leadership is learned. - Leaders make a difference. - First lead yourself. - Moral leadership calls us to high purposes. - Humility is the antidote to hubris. - Leadership is in the moment. - The best-kept secret of successful leaders is love: staying in love with leading, with the people who do the work, with what their organizations produce, and with those who honor the organization by using its products and services.

This book provides clear ideas about the qualities that make an effective leader. Plenty of real life examples support and illustrate each quality. Worth reading.
