Publisher's Summary

The most trusted source of leadership wisdom, updated to address today's realities.

The Leadership Challenge is the gold-standard manual for effective leadership, grounded in research and written by the premier authorities in the field. With deep insight into the complex interpersonal dynamics of the workplace, this book positions leadership both as a skill to be learned and as a relationship that must be nurtured to reach its full potential. This new sixth edition has been revised to address current challenges and includes more international examples and a laser focus on business issues; you'll learn how extraordinary leaders accomplish extraordinary things and how to develop your leadership skills and style to deliver quality results every time. Engaging stories delve into the fundamental roles that great leaders fulfill, and simple frameworks provide a primer for those who seek continuous improvement; by internalizing key insights and putting concepts into action, you'll become a more effective, more impactful leader.

A good leader gets things done; a great leader aspires, inspires, and achieves more. This book highlights the differences between good and great, and shows you how to bridge the chasm between getting things done and making things happen.

  • Gain deep insight into leadership's critical role in organizational health
  • Navigate the shift toward team-oriented work relationships
  • Motivate and inspire to break through the pervasive new cynicism
  • Leverage the electronic global village to deliver better results

Business is evolving at an increasingly rapid rate, and leaders must keep pace with the changes or risk stagnation. People work differently, are motivated differently, and have different expectations today - business as usual is quickly losing its effectiveness. The Leadership Challenge helps you stay current, relevant, and effective in the modern workplace.

    "Like listening to a robot - not very engaging"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would change the narrator. The book has some good info, but it was hard to concentrate to what was being said as the narrator was very monotone like a robot. No emotion at all.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The book is not engaging. I found my mind was drifting off to think about other things. This is unlike the books from Harvard Business Review who are really engaging and can listen with ease.


    Was The Leadership Challenge Sixth Edition worth the listening time?

    No. I have the book too which is good, but I didn;t like the audio book at all.


    Any additional comments?

    Get the book instead.

    "Overall very good could be better"

    Overall very good could be better. There were many incredible gems worthing writing down as I listened to this book. The research was obvious, but the examples were easy too many and there narrators voice was just on the edge of annoying. I wish there was happy medium .
