“The Leadership Challenge” by Kouzes & Posner

Leadership is everyone’s business. Leadership is not a position or a title that one holds. Everyone is accountable for leadership in an organization. Real leaders can be found at all levels in any organization.

I just finished reading “The Leadership Challenge” by Kouzes & Posner over my Christmas holiday. This is probably the best book I have read on the principles of leadership and what is at the core of great leaders. This book is based on over 25 years of research and study on the topic. The great thing about the book is it tells the stories of great leadership from many aspects and levels of everyday leaders. It talks about how leaders can be developed and are not just “born” that way. It helps provide a recipe of what constitutes a great leader. The book takes you through “The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership” and the “Ten Commitments to Leadership”. It is a great guide to leadership. Simply a great & must read for any leader! Which is everyone at some point in their life.
