From the authors of The Leadership Challenge, Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership is a TLC for individual contributors. Leadership is not about position, power, or place but about behavior. It's about what you do, not who you are. Ever since the first edition of The Leadership Challenge in 1987, Kouzes and Posner have said that "leadership is everyone's business." However, except for The Student Leadership Challenge, they have not (yet) written a book specifically for those who are not in formal leadership roles in organizations. Almost all examples in the 6 editions of TLC are people in managerial roles in the workplace. This book is for the audience the previous books do not reach: people who are not in formal leadership roles. There already exists a Leadership Is Everyone's Business (LIEB) workshop with materials offered through Workplace Learning Solutions, which this book will complement. Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership draws from and builds upon material from existing works and is consistent with the TLC framework, but adds all new stories related to this particular audience.
Backed by over 25 years of original research, The Leadership Challenge Workshop is an intense discovery process created by best-selling authors, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner.

In addition, a stand-alone Facilitator's Guide dedicated to multiple innovative and effective activities is available, allowing trainers, human resource professionals, and consultants to facilitate learning opportunities for executives, managers, and aspiring leaders who want to refine their leadership skills.

The Values Cards are pre-printed with words such as creativity, loyalty, and teamwork so that participants can identify and record the values that are most meaningful to them.

From the bestselling authors of The Leadership Challenge and over a dozen award winning leadership books, James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner have written a new book that examines a fundamental question: How do people learn leadership? How do they learn to become leaders? Learning Leadership: The Five Fundamentals of Becoming an Exemplary Leader (ISBN: 978-1-119-14428-1; Wiley; May 2016) is a comprehensive guide to unleashing the inner-leader in us all and to building a solid foundation for a lifetime of leadership growth and mastery. The book offers a concrete framework to help individuals of all levels, functions, and backgrounds take charge of their own leadership development and become the best leaders they can be. Arguing that all individuals are born with the capacity to lead, Kouzes and Posner provide readers with a practical series of actions and specific coaching tips for harnessing that capacity and creating a context in which they can excel., Supported by over 30 years of research, from over seventy countries, and with examples from real-world leaders, Learning Leadership is a clarion call to unleash the leadership potential that is already present in today s society. According to Kouzes and Posner, Leadership makes a significant difference in levels of engagement and commitment and is perhaps the most important asset in every organization, yet recent research points to a shortage of leaders. It is a serious global concern. The world needs more exemplary leaders in order to promote high-performing workplaces and inspire feelings of greater self-worth and meaningfulness. The shortage, however, is not because of the lack of potential talent. The people are out there, the eagerness is out there, and the capability is out there. The shortage results from prevailing myths myths about talent, strengths, position, self-reliance, and effort that inhibit the vast majority of leaders from shining and organizations from realizing the full benefits of the talent they already have. Learning Leadership provides readers with evidence-based strategies to ignite the habit of continuous improvement and the mindset of becoming the best leaders they can be. Emerging leaders, as well as leadership developers, internal and external coaches and trainers, and other human resource professionals will learn from first-hand stories and practical examples so that they can deeply understand and apply the fundamental for becoming the best leaders they can be. Learning Leadership: The Five Fundamentals of Becoming an Exemplary Leader is divided into digestible bite-sized chapters that encourage daily actions to becoming a better leader. Key takeaways from the book include: *Believe in Yourself. Believing in oneself is the essential first step in developing leadership competencies. The best leaders are learners, and they can t achieve mastery until and unless they truly decide that inside them there is a person who can make and difference and learn to be a better leader than they are right now. *Aspire to Excel. To become an exemplary leader, people have to determine what they care most about and why they want to lead. Leaders with values-based motivations are the most likely to excel. They also must have a clear image of the kind of leader they want to be in the future and the legacy they want to leave for others. *Challenge Yourself. Challenging oneself is critical to learning leadership. Leaders have to seek new experiences and test themselves. There will be inevitable setbacks and failures along the way that require curiosity, grit, courage, and resilience in order to persist in learning and becoming the best. *Engage Support. One can t lead alone, and one can t learn alone.It is essential to get support and coaching on the path to achieving excellence. Whether it s family, managers at work, or professional coaches, leaders need the advice, feedback, care, and support of others. *Practice Deliberately. No one gets better at anything without continuous practice. Exemplary leaders spend more time practicing than ordinary leaders. Simply being in the role of a leader is insufficient. To achieve mastery, leaders must set improvement goals, participate in designed learning experiences, ask for feedback, and get coaching. They also put in the time every day and make learning leadership a daily habit. Kouzes and Posner offer unrivaled insights into what it means to become an exemplary leader in today s world with their original research and over 30 years of experience studying the practices of extraordinary leadership. They show that anyone can become a better leader if they believe in themselves, aspire to excel, challenge themselves, to grow, engage the support of others, and practice deliberately. Learning Leadership challenges readers to do the meaningful and disciplined work necessary to becoming the best they can, using a new mindset and toolkit that can make extraordinary things happen. It s not the once-in-a-while transformational acts that demonstrate leadership. It s the little things that one does day in and day out that pave the path to greatness.

Across the board, people say their greatest moments arise out of the most difficult periods of their careers. Turning Adversity Into Opportunity reveals how leaders at any level can transform difficult circumstances into opportunities for growth and success. Kouzes and Posner offer a clear set of six actionable strategies, showing how extraordinary leaders navigate through uncertainty, hardship, disruption, transformation, transition, recovery, new beginnings, and other significant challenges.
