PRAISE FOR THE LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE, SEVENTH EDITION

"Did we really need a Seventh Edition of The Leadership Challenge? The answer is a resounding yes. This seminal book-series is more important than ever, far more important. The world is a mess. And the best way out, as I see it, is to better our organizations and the lives of their employees. The Five Practices that are the keystone of the book can without doubt trigger an internal revolution of organizational excellence--which can, collectively, give one hope, on a global scale, for a brighter future."

--TOM PETERS, bestselling business author and speaker

"Kouzes and Posner have quite literally written the book on leadership. Not only that, but they're also generous and thorough enough to keep updating it, as our tumultuous times demand. This Seventh Edition of The Leadership Challenge is a masterpiece--informative, practical, and engaging. If you take these ideas to heart and apply the book's Five Practices assiduously, you will be well on your way to becoming a better leader."

-- AMY C. EDMONDSON, Professor, Harvard Business School; author of The Fearless Organization

"This is a classic--one of the few books on leadership that's actually worth reading. The Leadership Challenge is more relevant than ever: a practical, evidence-based resource on how to mobilize people around a common goal."

-- ADAM GRANT, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

"The U.S. Coast Guard Academy has relied upon the foundational principles set forth in The Leadership Challenge to develop the next generation of leaders of character who will serve the people of the United States. This exciting Seventh Edition draws upon conclusive research and is bursting with compelling, real-life examples to learn from and by which to lead. If you want to learn how to earn trust and respect as a leader others yearn to follow, let this book serve as your proven field guide."

"I've been a student of leadership derived from my time in the military and a practitioner of the Five Practices of The Leadership Challenge for nearly thirty years. I have found that The Leadership Challenge is a call to action for any individual that wants to lead through inspiration and accomplish only what others dream of achieving. It's required reading for my leadership team and has been a foundational training platform for my management teams over the years."

--MARK LEPOSKY, Executive Vice President, Global Operations, Topgolf Callaway Brands
