The Leadership Challenge: Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership

“Leadership is not about personality; it’s about behavior—an observable set of skills and abilities.”

Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner have been studying leaders and leadership for over thirty years. Their experiences led them to publish an excellent series of books based on five practices of exemplary leadership. We encourage you to read their work and use their workbooks to increase your knowledge, skills, and confidence.

This link will take you to Kouzes and Posner’s website and an overview of the five practices of exemplary leadership. Read this to get a taste for their philosophy and contact us if you’d like to work with a C4H coach to work on any of these practices. c4h@apiahf.org
