To transform society, we first need to transform ourselves. The Courage to Lead starts from this premise and delivers a strong, simple message: if you relate authentically to life, to yourself, to the world and to society, you start the process of social change. Grounded in more than fifty years of in-depth research and practical experience in over thirty nations, The Courage to Lead uses a large canvas to paint a vivid picture of leadership in its many forms: personal, family, work, organization, community. Activist stories from around the world demonstrate the profound premise and inspires a deep understanding of leadership. This is a book that changes lives. These days, the complexity of life tends to leave us paralyzed. The Courage to Lead will help people move out of their paralysis and invite them to join the ranks of those social pioneers who create what is needed for the 21st century. This book speaks to you in a strange language that you do not at first remember but that you will eventually recognize as your mother tongue. David Patterson CEO, Northwater Capital Management The Courage to Lead provided me with a great deal of guidance and support at a time when I needed to make significant life decisions. It also provided me with a framework and a language to better understand who I am, where I needed to be and where I wanted to go. I recommend this course to anyone who is open to a transformative experience in which one brings many important life questions into focus. Garret Keown Teacher-in-Training, Lakehead University 325 University Health Network (UHN) staff have participated in The Courage to Lead study program over the last five years. The fundamental principles in the book align with our belief that "everyone can lead from where they stand." We think that leadership is not about a formal role or job title but about a philosophy, values and attitude in how one approaches life. This program has helped staff tap into the leader within themselves and, in doing so, has supported our mission to deliver excellent patient-centered care.

The introduction of outcomes-based education has necessitated a change in the leadership structures within schools. New education policies have been introduced that are intended to delegate far more authority and responsibility for leadership and management to school leaders than has been the case before. This book draws on the Teacher In-service Project’s experience of working with school leaders who have been engaged in the process of making the adjustment. It challenges school leaders to reflect critically on their own approaches to leadership. The book offers a learning process, rather than merely providing tips or describing facts. It is a companion text to The Learning School, as it offers a practical application of the theory and principles espoused in that text.

Leadership doesn’t happen without courage. In fact, leadership might be defined as "courage in action." But the truth is that courage is poorly understood and not what you typically think. In their second original short format work, Finding the Courage to Lead, James Kouzes and Barry Posner offer a perspective on what ordinary leaders say about what courage is to them, and what their courageous experiences mean for the daily practice of leadership. Courage is one of those big, bold words. It has the reputation of being something way out there on the edges of human experience, commonly associated with superhuman feats, life-and-death struggles, and overcoming impossible odds. It gives rise to images of daring feats of bravery and nerves of steel. It has such a mystique about it that many think the concept doesn’t apply to them. But, when you look beyond the headlines, you find out that this account of courage is certainly not the whole story. There is very little relevant discussion of courage in the leadership literature. For all the talk about how leaders need to be courageous, there is next to nothing written about what it really means for leadership. Grounded in award-winning original research and rich with insight, Finding the Courage to Lead is valuable for leaders at any level to understand how courage shapes our leadership potential on and off the job, and is required reading for any fans of Kouzes & Posner's work.

Elsie Y. Cross draws on her own experiences as an African American woman to provide the practical assistance today's organizational leaders need. She demonstrates how oppression functions at the individual, group, and systems levels, and makes clear that if executives are to solve these problems in the workplace, they must confront their own emotional and psychological barriers first. Not a memoir but a knowledgeable, reasoned explication of a complex and complete system of organizational change, Cross' book is a major contribution to our understanding of gender and cultural problems, and a sign of hope that both can be solved.
