Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership

Feb 11, 2021

When you hear the word “leader,” what comes to mind? A politician, a CEO, a community organizer? What if when you heard the word “leader,” you looked in the mirror? There have been times in all our lives that we have had to rise to a position of leadership whether we recognize it as leadership or not. When we reflect on even just the past year, we can all think of multiple times we have been called to leadership within our own families, workplaces, and communities as we have adapted to our quickly changing world.

In their new book Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership, authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner explore the idea that leadership is not defined by rank or authority but achieved through everyday behaviors and actions. Meaning, leadership is a learned set of skills, and everyone has the power to obtain that competence and be a highly effective leader in any setting, regardless of status.

A result of decades of research, Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership is a must-have for anyone aspiring to improve their leadership abilities and is a perfect addition to The Leadership Challenge® brand. The knowledge shared in this book, when used in combination with the Leadership Practices Inventory® (LPI®) provides a powerful combination of knowledge and skill that can elevate anyone, at any level, to leadership.

Having established themselves as the foremost voice in leadership development and research, Kouzes and Posner bring their expertise to the next level with this release, providing tangible action steps and behaviors we can take to harness the exemplary leader within all of us.

As we transition from the chaos of 2020 towards stabilization and rebuilding in 2021 and beyond, it is more important than ever that we all take an inventory of how we can contribute to the betterment of society. Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership gives us the exact steps we can take and behaviors we can integrate to grow as leaders from right where we are. As they say in the book, “Leadership matters from wherever you do it.”
