The most trusted resource on becoming a leader is now updated and revised for a new generation. This leadership classic continues to be a bestseller after three editions and twenty years in print. It is the gold standard for research-based leadership, and the premier resource on becoming a leader. This new edition, with streamlined text, more international and business examples, and a graphic redesign, is more readable and accessible than ever before. The Leadership Challenge, Fourth Edition, has been extensively updated with the latest research and case studies, and offers inspiring new stories of real people achieving extraordinary results. The authors' central theme remains the same and is more relevant today than ever: "Leadership is Everyones Business." Their "five practices" and "ten commitments" have been proven by hundreds of thousands of dedicated, successful leaders. This edition, with almost one-third new material, emphasizes the global community and refocuses on business leaders.
The five practices of exemplary leadership -- Credibility is the foundation of leadership -- Clarify values -- Set the example -- Envision the future -- Enlist others -- Search for opportunities -- Experiment and take risks -- Foster collaboration -- Strengthen others -- Recognize contributions -- Celebrate the values and victories -- Leadership is everyone's business.
