Great Book for Leadership Peer Groups
This book discusses in depth the five practices of exemplary leadership: 1) model the way, 2) inspire a shared vision, 3) challenge the process, 4) enable others to act, and 5) encourage the heart. The authors devote two chapters to each of these practices, with helpful summaries of key points at the end of each chapter. Although the book is chock full of great ideas, it is rather dense and can be hard to work through. Those who could benefit the most from the pearls of wisdom in this book are unlikely to have the kind of time it takes to really digest and absorb the practices outlined in this book. It would be a great book for a leadership peer group to use to help each other build and strengthen their leadership practice.

Read it for a college course
Would you consider the audio edition of The Leadership Challenge, 4th Edition to be better than the print version?
I have both the book and audio. At times I followed along in the book from the audio. I had this for a college class and multiple homework assignments from it. I could read the chapters by audio and study for tests and/or homework with the book. It's excellent information.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No way. Information and concepts are too detailed.
