An Innovative Tool for Enhancing Vision Skills Throughout 25 years of leadership research, bestselling Leadership Challenge authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner have consistently found that Inspire a Shared Vision is the practice that differentiates leaders from other credible people. They've also found that, for most leaders, it is the toughest practice. Vision is one of those words that evokes ridicule and awe, cynicism and mystery, confusion and inspiration. It's one of the most misunderstood words in the leadership lexicon. In The Leadership Challenge, vision is defined as: An IDEAL and UNIQUE IMAGE of the FUTURE for the COMMON GOOD This hands-on workbook is designed to help you get more comfortable and stronger at Inspiring a Shared Vision. It will guide you through the process of developing a clearer picture of that ideal future, and then it will help you to communicate it more effectively to those who can help you implement it. In addition, the workbook contains sections that will enable you to make your team a more forward-thinking group and your organization a more visionary place. And because visions are co-created and shared, there is a section on how to build visionary skills in others. Following the step-by-step process outlined in the book you will be able to: Draft an effective vision statement Craft a persuasive vision presentation Test the presentation Create different versions of the presentation to suit the audience/situation Seek feedback from your audience and evaluate your vision effectiveness Each section contains activities to help you focus on the skills needed to become more adept at looking ahead and creating the workplace and the world you would like to see.

Based on the internationally acclaimed best-seller The Leadership Challenge by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, The Leadership Challenge Values Cards Facilitator's Guide offers step-by-step instructions on learning and applying one of the enduring truths of leadership—the truth that values drive commitment. Using the guide's innovative and time-tested activities, trainers, human resource professionals, and consultants can facilitate learning opportunities for executives, managers, and aspiring leaders who are committed to improving their leadership competencies. As Kouzes and Posner explain, the best leaders have a clear understanding of their personal values and ideals. The Leadership Challenge Values Cards can help any experienced or aspiring leader to clarify these personal values, as well as to build consensus on shared values that will guide them and their teams in taking decisions and actions in all situations. Each of the Values Cards is pre-printed with key words such as creativity, loyalty, and teamwork so that participants can more easily identify and record the values that are most meaningful to them. The Facilitator's Guide contains 11 dynamic activities: 2 introductory activities, 6 Personal Values Drive Commitment Activities, and 3 Shared Values Make a Difference Activities. Facilitators will need to purchase a deck of the cards for each participant. After the workshop or coaching session, the cards become a take-away for the participants—they can use their deck as a tool for reflection and as an aide for helping to clarify the values with their own constituents. They can also be used at home to engage family members in the all-important conversations about the beliefs they'd like to live by. Praise for The Leadership Challenge Values Cards Facilitator's Guide "When I went to the Workshop, I was at a turning point in my professional and personal lives. After doing the Values Cards activity, I realized that I was not 'living my values' to the fullest extent in either area. After the workshop, I had conversations with folks in my personal and professional lives as to what is important to me and what I stand for. As a result, I was able to make adjustments in both areas of my life." Ken Hurdle, chief ombudsman, CA Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation

A global ethic is a set of core values that transcend national, cultural, and religious differences. As the world begins to function more as a single body than a set of isolated nations, a global ethic becomes increasingly important. "The global ethic is the keystone to the archway," Hitt writes. "Without it, the archway will collapse." Hitt not only defines this ethic, he describes how it serves as a framework for organizational leadership. The principles in A Global Ethic provide the foundation for action, making it an important and timely resource for leaders at all levels of industry and government.

In The Collaborative Leader, L. Michael Hall and Ian McDermott answer key questions about leadership. What is collaboration? How does it relate to leadership? How do you do it effectively? How do you pull people together, inspire them with a meaningful vision, and organise them so that a team spirit emerges and peak performance is achieved? The Collaborative Leader is a practical guide to collaborating with others and leading collaboratively. That means learning how to win the hearts and minds of those who we lead. Packed with practical and immediate action points, the book will show you how to turn around a non-collaborative group or environment immediately. You will find assessment questions throughout, step-by-step processes on collaboration, and an invitation to action at the end of each chapter: a personal challenge to step up to the collaborative level of leadership.

The leader who cannot effectively collaborate cannot effectively lead. If you are to walk your talk, you need to demonstrate collaborative skills yourself, and this book will show you the ‘how to’s’ for developing the critical success elements of leadership. The best collaborators are those who have lots of fun collaborating. The goal can be serious. The collaboration can be fun.
