LIBERATE THE LEADER WITHIN

Do you think of yourself as a leader? In this updated and expanded second edition of The Student Leadership Challenge, James Kouzes and Barry Posner apply their extensive research and expertise to demonstrate that anyone can be a leader, regardless of age or experience. They challenge high school and undergraduate college students to examine their own leadership actions and aspirations. In this book, you’ll learn from first-hand leadership stories from young leaders like yourself around the world, helping you to deeply explore and understand The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®:

  • MODEL THE WAY
  • INSPIRE A SHARED VISION
  • CHALLENGE THE PROCESS
  • ENABLE OTHERS TO ACT
  • ENCOURAGE THE HEART

Framed within these Five Practices, the authors guide you through the concrete actions you can take to become an exemplary leader, from finding your voice and clarifying your own values, to recognizing others’ contributions and celebrating their victories. They ask you to reflect at the end of each chapter on your own leadership experiences and abilities now and for the future. This new edition also includes an access code so you can take the Student Leadership Practices Inventory® Self Online, a brief, 30-question assessment to help you explore your own leadership behavior and determine the steps you can take to liberate the leader within and become your best self.
