The Leadership Challenge is about how leaders mobilize others to want to get extraordinary things done. It’s about the practices leaders use to transform values into actions, visions into realities, obstacles into innovations, separateness into solidarity, and risks into rewards. It’s about a climate in which people turn challenging opportunities into remarkable successes. The Leadership Challenge was developed by Jim Kouzes and Barry Pozner, researchers, writers, and teachers in the field of leadership.
