Publisher's Summary

In this best-selling book, Kouzes and Posner (authors of The Leadership Challenge), explain why leadership is above all a relationship, with credibility as the cornerstone. They provide rich examples of real managers in action and reveal the six key disciplines and related practices that strengthen a leader's capacity for developing and sustaining credibility. Kouzes and Posner explain how leaders can encourage greater initiative, risk-taking, and productivity by demonstrating trust in employees and resolving conflicts on the basis of principles, not positions.

Critic Reviews

"Kouzes and Posner have found a way to communicate the importance of hope and offer practical ways of keeping it alive.'' (Tom Peters)
"With the hundreds of look-alike, sound-alike, self-help books available on how to succeed in just about any field, it is a pleasure to read a book that contains something new and useful. In Credibility, not only have the authors captured the essence of leadership, they also alert us to the hazards surrounding leaders, would-be leaders and followers in all walks of life, including the health field.'' (Canadian Hospital Association)

Leadership Foundations

Would you consider the audio edition of Credibility to be better than the print version?

Probably having the print versions would be even more helpful because there is so much to refer back to - I would be underlining like crazy, and then taking that to share with various groups.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no

Any additional comments?

This is a superior book for anyone interested in effective leadership.
