In their book, The Leadership Challenge, 4th Edition, Kouzes and Posner introduce the five practices of exemplary leadership. Based on their 'personal best' case studies from leaders who turned around their organisations, from all different cultures and circumstances, these are the five important lessons to learn.
Looking in depth into the dynamic process of leadership, through many case analyses and survey questionnaires, Kouzes and Posner uncovered the five practices common to personal-best leadership experiences:
1) Model the Way
2) Inspire a Shared Vision
3) Challenge the Process
4) Enable Others to Act
5) Encourage the Heart
The key behind these factors is that they are not traits capable of being exhibited by only those with the right personality. They are principles to follow which will transform your leadership into its strongest form. They are available to anyone who accepts the leadership challenge.
