Leadership is Everyone's Business, Participant Workbook, 2e
May 2017, Pfeiffer
Backed by over 20 years of original research, The Leadership Challenge® Workshop is a unique and intense discovery process created by best-selling authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner. The Workshop demystifies the concept of leadership and approaches it as a learnable set of behaviors. In other words, forget about job titles, forget about position or rank or work experience. Leadership is about what you do.
In this non-manager version of the Participant Workbook, Kouzes and Posner introduce individual contributors to The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®. The one-day program is about how the "leadership is not the private reserve of a few charismatic men and women. It is a process ordinary people use when they are bringing forth the best from themselves and others." The authors' goal is to "liberate the leader in everyone" with this inspiring, results-oriented Workshop.
