This week my travels find me at home, just as you are. And while we’re at home we can still work diligently on creating better versions of ourselves and honing our abilities to lead. I’ve been listening to a great book, “The Leadership Challenge” by James M. Kouzes (Dean’s Executive Fellow of Leadership, Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University) and Barry Z. Posner (Dean of Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University). The book is now in its sixth edition and the book is so good that every time a new edition came out, I started from the beginning and re-listened to it. In fact, the ideas put forth by Kouzes and Posner about effective leadership during challenging times have never been more applicable.
