Publisher's Summary

In these turbulent times, when the very foundations of organizations and societies are being shaken, leaders need to move beyond the pessimistic predictions, the trendy fads, and the simplistic solutions. They need to turn to what's real and what's proven, to understand what the evidence tells us about how exemplary leaders get extraordinary things done. This is the imperative that best-selling, award-winning authors James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner have undertaken in their engaging, personal, and bold new audiobook, The Truth About Leadership.
Based on 30 years of research - and more than one million responses to Kouzes and Posner's leadership assessment - this all-new work explores the fundamental, enduring truths of leadership that hold constant regardless of context or circumstance. In ten time-tested truths, Kouzes and Posner reveal what all leaders must know, the questions they must be prepared to answer, and the real-world issues they will likely face.
For nearly three decades, Kouzes and Posner's The Leadership Challenge has helped people discover and develop their leadership potential. The Truth About Leadership will show emerging leaders the heart of leadership and what they need to know to be effective; fans of The Leadership Challenge will find a dynamic new look at what it means to lead today. This is a book leaders can use to do their real and necessary work - bringing about the essential changes that will renew organizations and communities.

- mp "Fanatically passionate about self-improvement and never ending self- education"

Nothing you haven't read before

But a lot of repetition and BS-bingo ("you have to believe!" "Follow your heart!" "Do what you love!")
A disappointment.
