The Truth About Leadership
IN THIS SUMMARY
Although the context of leadership has changed significantly in recent years due to factors like globalization and new technologies, the content of leadership has remained constant. In The Truth About Leadership, James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner describe what research has revealed about leadership and how certain aspects of leadership endure over time. For three decades, Kouzes and Posner have travelled worldwide, researching the topic of exemplary leadership. This research is used to substantiate each of the book’s conclusions. Using ten “truths,” the authors clearly describe the foundations of great leadership and lessons about how to become more effective leaders.
