Product description

Review

“This book cuts through the clutter and reminds us of what really matters. The introduction alone is worth the price of the book.”
—PATRICK LENCIONI, president, The Table Group, and author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and Getting Naked

“The leadership truths Kouzes and Posner lay out have not only endured the test of time but are even more relevant now in a world transformed by Twittering Millennials. Buy copies for yourself, your boss, and also for leaders of your organization.”
—CHARLENE LI, author of Open Leadership, and founder, Altimeter Group

The Truth About Leadership provides some of the best practical advice on leadership I’ve read in a long time. If you have not read Kouzes and Posner and you manage people, shame on you. Start here. If you have read their work and your workplace needs a shot in the arm, you’ll find this book a quick, engaging jewel that will help you become a more trusted, credible, and valued leader.”
—ADRIAN GOSTICK, author of The Carrot Principle

“I’ve always been a big proponent of simple truths. That’s why I love the new book from Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, The Truth About Leadership.  Jim and Barry spell out ten fundamental truths about leadership and every one of them is right on. If you want to do a fact check on your leadership expertise, read this book!”
—KEN BLANCHARD, coauthor of The One Minute Manager® and Leading at a Higher Level

“Regardless of your experience, age, generation, or life stage, The Truth About Leadership will remind you of the vital role leaders play in our lives, renew your interest in understanding what makes a leader great, and rekindle your desire to be an inspiring leader yourself.”
—LYNNE LANCASTER, coauthor of When Generations Collide and The M-Factor

“Elegant in its simplicity and powerful in its depth, The Truth About Leadership dazzles the reader with evidence-based knowledge and practical inspiration This is that one in a million book that serves to pull an entire field together for the reader. No matter how many books you’ve read on leadership, you will better understand each of them after reading this remarkable book.”  
—COLONEL TOM KOLDITZ, PhD, professor, U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and author of In Extremis Leadership

“This is a book a leader should put on his or her nightstand and read a chapter a night to refresh on what is important from a leadership perspective.”
—STEPHEN ALMASSY, Global Vice Chair, OCA/Industry, Ernst & Young Global Limited
