News & Opinion: Leadership Challenge Interview with Jim Kouzes

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:34 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

In this interview, I talk with Jim Kouzes, co-author of The Leadership Challenge. The book is a classic and was the first to look at leadership from a research-based perspective. I could have talked with Jim for three hours. If you are not familiar with this title, listen to Jim talk about the difference between management and leadership, his thoughts on how leaders made, and why he named the book Leadership Challenge.
