Author Biography

<B>Jim Kouzes</B> is Chairman Emeritus of the Tom Peters Company and an Executive Fellow at the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University. <B>Barry Posner</B> is Dean of the Leavey School of Business and Professor of Leadership at Santa Clara University. <P> <B>Jim Kouzes</B> and <B>Barry Posner</B> are authors of the award-winning and best-selling book, <I>The Leadership Challenge</I>, as well as the widely used Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI). They have also written such works as <I>Credibility, Encouraging the Heart, </I>and <I>The Leadership Challenge Planne</I>r. The launch of <I>LPI Online</I>, combined with their other publications, truly make them the most trusted source on becoming a better leader. <P> 17 02 "If you didn't read <I>The Leadership Challenge</I> when it first came out, don't miss it this time. If you did see it before, read it again. Kouzes and Posner have updated their powerful lessons on leadership, and we've never needed them more." &mdash;Don Peppers and Martha Rogers, authors, <I>The One to One Manager</I> and <I>One to One B2B</I>, and partners, Peppers and Rogers Group <P>When it was initially written in 1987 few could have predicted that <I>The Leadership Challenge</I> would become one of the best-selling leadership books of all time. Now, faced with the new challenges of our unpredictable global business environment, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner-two of the country's premier leadership experts-have completely revised and updated their classic book. Building on the knowledge base of their previous books, the third edition of <I>The Leadership Challenge </I>is grounded in extensive research and based on interviews with all kinds of leaders at all levels in public and private organizations from around the world. In this edition, the authors emphasize that the fundamentals of leadership are the same today as they were in the 1980s, and as they've probably been for centuries. In that sense, nothing's new. Leadership is not a fad. While the content of leadership has not changed, the context has-and in some cases, changed dramatically. <P>With more than fifty percent new material and a resoundingly inspiring message, <I>The Leadership Challenge</I> is a "personal coach in a book"-guiding readers through The Five Practice of Exemplary LeadershipG. When leaders understand that leadership is a relationship and they begin to engage in the Five Practices&mdash; Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart&mdash; they are better able to perform at their personal best. Success is sure to follow.
