“Jim Kouzes visits Google’s Mountain View, CA headquarters to discuss his book “The Leadership Challenge.” This event took place on January 27, 2009, as part of the Leading@Google series.
The Leadership Challenge has been thoroughly updated and revised for a new generation of leaders living and working in a global environment. Building on the knowledge base of the previous books, the fourth edition is grounded in research and presents extensive interviews with a diverse group of leaders at all levels in a wide variety of organizations from around the world. The authors emphasize that the fundamentals of leadership are not a fad. While the context of leadership has changed dramatically, the content of leadership has endured the test of time.
James M. Kouzes is Dean’s Executive Professor of Leadership, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University.
