"This book is one of the very best on the topic of leadership, offering extraordinary stories from leaders at various ages and stages of their lives. Whether you’re now in a leadership role and want to further strengthen and hone your skills, or you simply have the desire to learn to make a difference and help guide your company–or even friends and family members–to higher levels of success, you’ll benefit by reading The Leadership Challenge."
–David S. Pottruck, president & CEO, The Charles Schwab Corporation

"The first edition was seminal and totally original. It became a modern classic on leadership practically overnight. With this new edition, with new cases and concepts and action steps that are even riper and more important, Kouzes and Posner go way beyond their earlier work and have made yet another brilliant contribution to leadership studies. This new book, a product of an unusual collaboration, is essential reading for everyone involved or concerned with leading."

This book is sorely needed in todays business community. True leadership is rarely taught in todays schools or mentored on the job in todays offices, but it needs to be the cornerstone of every business and family. Much needless suffering is caused by people in leadership positions who don't have a clue how to lead others.

The principles in this book apply to virtually any life situation. The model the authors provide is simple enough for students to understand & profound enough to make a difference

The Leadership Challenge by Kouzes and Posner remains one of the best leadership books in circulation today. The one thing that I love about all of Kouzes and Posner's books is that the principles that they espouse can be broken down into a number of practices and are thus made easier to remember. For instance, in this book, the Leadership Challenge I remember the five practices of leadership through the Acronym MICEE as in (1) Model the Way (2) Inspire a Shared Vision (3) Challenge the Process (4) Enable others to act and (5) Encourage the heart. These are practical principles that all leaders can live by. If you don't have it, get it, you won't regret it.
