About This Episode:
Jim Kouzes is the co-author with Barry Posner of the award-winning and best-selling book, The Leadership Challenge, now in its sixth edition, with over 2.5 million copies sold. He also currently serves as a Fellow with the Doerr Institute for New Leaders at Rice University. Jim has co-authored over a dozen books, including Stop Selling & Start Leading, Learning Leadership, The Truth About Leadership, Credibility, Encouraging the Heart, and A Leader’s Legacy, as well as the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI)—the top-selling off-the-shelf leadership assessment in the world.

The Wall Street Journal named Jim one of the ten best executive educators in the U.S., and he received the Distinguished Contribution to Workplace Learning and Performance Award from the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD).

He was presented the Thought Leader Award by the Instructional Systems Association. Jim has also been recognized as one of HR Magazine’s Top 20 Most Influential International Thinkers, as one of the Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business Behavior by Trust Across America. Jim believes it was on January 20, 1961 when he was first inspired to study leadership.

That was the day he was one of only a dozen Eagle Scouts who served in John F. Kennedy’s Honor Guard at the Presidential Inauguration. He and Barry are currently completing a new work titled Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership—a book about how to make a difference without a title, position or authority.
