A Leader’s Legacy (J-B Leadership Challenge: Kouzes/Posner) (Hardcover)
In this provocative book, leadership experts and authors of the best-selling The Leadership Challenge, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner take on a unique challenge and explore the question of leadership and legacy. Kouzes and Posner examine in twenty-two chapters the critical questions all leaders must ask themselves in order to leave a lasting impact. These powerful essays are grouped into four categories: Significance, Relationships, Aspirations, and Courage. In each essay the authors consider a thorny and often ambiguous issue with which todayÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½s leaders must grapple issues such as how leaders serve and sacrifice, why leaders need loving critics, why leaders should want to be liked, why leaders can’t take trust for granted, why itÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½s not just the leaderÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½s vision, why failure is always an option, why it takes courage to ÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½make a life,ÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½ how to liberate the leader in everyone, and ultimately, how the legacy you leave is the life you lead.
