What Leaders Are Saying About "A Leader's Legacy"
"Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner have done it again! In a brilliant
follow-up to The Leadership Challenge, they offer the combined
wisdom of decades of studying and working with leaders. In 22
thoughtful essays they summarize with depth and clarity what is
really important for you as a leader: your courage, your
relationships, and the legacy you leave behind."
"This superb book defies conventional wisdom in favor of being
truly wise. In chapters such as 'Leaders Should Want to Be Liked'
and 'Failure Is Always an Option, ' Kouzes and Posner portray
leaders on a human scale, opening leadership to anyone who is
willing to be fully human. That, of course, is a challenge! And yet
the style of this book--with its stories of well-grounded leaders
and its engaging conversational prose--encourages the reader to
live into and up to that challenge. A Leader's Legacy will surely
become key to the literary legacy that its authors have been
leaving in their wake over the past twenty-five years."
"In their new book, Kouzes and Posner provide a badly needed
supplement to all those other books on leadership. First, they
don't just say that everyone can be a leader--that oft-repeated
bromide is little more than a cliche now. They demonstrate (with
good examples) how true and important the idea is. And second
(again with effective examples) they make 'leadership' something
that will interest not just 'organizational' types but anyone who
hopes to make adifference in the world."
"A Leader's Legacy is an indispensable daily reference for
leaders at every level of every enterprise. Legacy is a gift to
leaders of today, to leaders of the future."

The Enron debacle, the demise of Arthur Andersen, questionable practices at Tyco, Qwest, WorldCom, and a seemingly endless list of others have pushed public regard for business and business leaders to new lows. The need for smart leaders with vision and integrity has never been greater. Things need to change--and it will not be easy.
We can take a first step toward producing better business leaders by changing some of our own ideas about what it means to "win." Noel M. Tichy and Andrew R. McGill have brought together a stellar group of contributors from a variety of perspectives--including General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt, former Secretary of State James A. Baker III, and renowned management gurus Robert Quinn and C. K. Prahalad, among others--to offer insights that will help build better leaders, communities, and organizations. They show how to present a "Teachable Point of View" about business ethics that will help all leaders within an organization: Internalize core valuesBuild a values-based culture across the organizationBecome engaged to teach the same values lessons to their staffTake action and raise the ethical bar
Successful business leaders must be able to articulate their own unique Teachable Point of View on business ethics and drive it through their organization to ensure that everyone knows the ethical line and is neither shy nor silent if others risk crossing it.
"Nanus and Dobbs have written a seminal book about a long-neglected and key area of American life: the leadership of not-for-profits.... It's a first and should be read by all those concerned about not-for-profits: board members most especially, but volunteers, executives, benefactors, and academics as well."
"These authors have made a remarkable contribution to social sector nonprofit leadership. It's a valuable resource by two great authorities on a critical need."
"If there's one thing that today's nonprofit sector needs more than anything else, it's leadership.... Burt Nanus and Stephen Dobbs illustrate the qualities that do 'make a difference' by telling real-life stories of exceptional nonprofit leaders--few of them household names--and examining the lessons these men and women learned the hard way."
There are many books on leadership, but few that focus specifically on the unique role of nonprofit executives. For the CEOs and directors of more than one million U.S. social sector organizations--as well as those who aspire to these positions--best-selling author Burt Nanus and colleague Stephen M. Dobbs have written the first comprehensive and authoritative book on nonprofit leadership.
The authors show how leaders build successful nonprofit organizations by developing key relationships to improve their performance and move them toward a greater good--such as much higher levels of service to their clients and community. They describe the six key roles that effective leaders must play--Visionary, Strategist, Change Agent, Coach, Politician, and Fundraiser--and present inspiring examples of how their actions in these roles have been crucial to the success of large and small nonprofits flourishing across the nation. Leaders Who Make a Difference offers proven lessons on strategy, team building, fundraising, advocacy, board relations, and much more. Grounded in real-world practice, the book champions the potential of all nonprofit leaders to greatly improve the performance of their organizations and realize their visions of better communities.
