The Student Leadership Challenge: Five Practices for Becoming an Exemplary Leader

With leadership development and training now a staple at colleges and universities across North America, and in youth organizations and academic settings in Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, South America and Africa, the realization is already upon us. We cannot wait until people are in their 30s and 40s to teach them how to lead themselves and others to greatness. “The more we research and the more we write about leadership,” say Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner in the new second edition of THE STUDENT LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE, “the more confident we become that leadership is within the grasp of everyone.”

THE STUDENT LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE: Five Practices For Becoming An Exemplary Leader is an evidenced-based model for student leadership development. It is steeped in ongoing research that helps to inform, inspire and encourage student leaders. With a mix of stories from around the world, reflective and critical thinking activities, this book invites young people to see themselves in one another as it demonstrates how students can help to do extraordinary things.

The Five Practices for Exemplary Leadership is the foundation or model upon which the book is written. The model is widely regarded for its accessibility and ease of use as a stand-alone leadership model or one that can be used with other leadership programs.
