The leadership challenge by James M Kouzes( Book )

80 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 3,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was initially written in 1987, few could have predicted that The Leadership Challenge would become one of the best-selling leadership books of all time. Now, faced with the new challenges of our unpredictable global business environment, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner--two of the country's premier leadership experts--have completely revised and updated their classic book. Building on the knowledge base of their previous books, the third edition of The Leadership Challenge is grounded in extensive research and based on interviews with all kinds of leaders at all levels in public and private organizations from around the world. In this edition, the authors emphasize that the fundamentals of leadership are the same today as they were in the 1980s, and as they've probably been for centuries. In that sense, nothing's new. Leadership is not a fad. While the content of leadership has not changed, the context has-and in some cases, changed dramatically

Learning leadership : the five fundamentals of becoming an exemplary leader by James M Kouzes( )

14 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book offers a concrete framework to help individuals of all levels, functions, and backgrounds take charge of their own leadership development and become the best leaders they can be. Arguing that all individuals are born with the capacity to lead, Kouzes and Posner provide readers with a practical series of actions and specific coaching tips for harnessing that capacity and creating a context in which they can excel. Supported by over 30 years of research, from over seventy countries, and with examples from real-world leaders, Learning Leadership is a clarion call to unleash the leadership potential that is already present in today's society. According to Kouzes and Posner, Leadership makes a significant difference in levels of engagement and commitment and is perhaps the most important asset in every organization, yet recent research points to a shortage of leaders. It is a serious global concern. The world needs more exemplary leaders in order to promote high-performing workplaces and inspire feelings of greater self-worth and meaningfulness. The shortage, however, is not because of the lack of potential talent. The people are out there, the eagerness is out there, and the capability is out there. The shortage results from prevailing myths myths about talent, strengths, position, self-reliance, and effort that inhibit the vast majority of leaders from shining and organizations from realizing the full benefits of the talent they already have. Learning Leadership provides readers with evidence-based strategies to ignite the habit of continuous improvement and the mindset of becoming the best leaders they can be. Emerging leaders, as well as leadership developers, internal and external coaches and trainers, and other human resource professionals will learn from first-hand stories and practical examples so that they can deeply understand and apply the fundamental for becoming the best leaders they can be. Learning Leadership: The Five Fundamentals of Becoming an Exemplary Leader is divided into digestible bite-sized chapters that encourage daily actions to becoming a better leader

Turning adversity into opportunity by James M Kouzes( )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leaders are no strangers to challenge. Over the last few years leaders have experienced unprecedented layoffs, dismal sales, dwindling retirement accounts, and the bankruptcy of once-heralded institutions. They've been threatened by sequestration, the possibility of a government shutdown, and the messy transition to a new healthcare mandate. Trust in leaders has plummeted, engagement scores are stuck in neutral or worse, and any recovery seems tepid at best. Yet even as the challenges mount, the best leaders remain resilient in the face of adversity. In this new work, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, authors of The Leadership Challenge, explore how leaders can bounce back from adversity and disruption in uncertain times--times like the ones we're experiencing now. Based on their years of research on exemplary leadership, Jim and Barry share: Six strategies exemplary leaders employ during adverse and challenging circumstances to create opportunities for making extraordinary things happen. One practical action you can take immediately to enact each of these strategies. The study of leadership is the study of how men and women guide people through uncertainty, hardship, disruption, transformation, transition, recovery, new beginnings, and other significant challenges. It's also the study of how men and women, in times of constancy and complacency, actively seek to disturb the status quo, awaken new possibilities, and pursue opportunities. Sometimes leaders have to shake things up. Other times they just have to grab hold of the adversity that surrounds them. Challenge is the crucible of greatness, and whether challenge comes from the outside or the inside, leaders make things happen"
