The 25th anniversary edition of the bestselling business classic, completely revised and updated.
For more than 25 years, The Leadership Challenge has been the most trusted source on becoming a better leader, selling more than 2 million copies in over 20 languages since its first publication. Based on Kouzes and Posner’s extensive research, this all-new edition casts their enduring work in context for today’s world, proving how leadership is a relationship that must be nurtured, and most importantly, that it can be learned.
'One of the most trusted sources on leadership techniques since its first publication 25 years ago. (European CEO, 1st August 2012) If you re forward-looking enough to be serious about yourself as a competent leader, you need this book (Supply Management, December 2012) .now in its fifth edition and rightly so. The book presents the issues of leadership in an easy-to-digest manner, debunking the myth that leadership is some entity that people have or don't have."
