As the world falls deeper into economic downturns and warfare, the question of credibility—how leaders gain and lose it—is more important than ever. Building on their research from The Leadership Challenge, James Kouzes and Barry Posner explore why leadership is above all a relationship, with credibility as the cornerstone. They provide rich examples of real managers in action and reveal the six key disciplines and related practices that strengthen a leader’s capacity for developing and sustaining credibility. Kouzes and Posner show how leaders can encourage greater initiative, risk-taking, and productivity by demonstrating trust in employees and resolving conflicts on the basis of principles, not positions.
This personal, inspiring, and genuine guide helps you understand the fundamental importance of credibility for building personal and organizational success.
