From the authors of The Leadership Challenge, Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership is a TLC for individual contributors. Leadership is not about position, power, or place but about behavior. It's about what you do, not who you are. Ever since the first edition of The Leadership Challenge in 1987, Kouzes and Posner have said that "leadership is everyone's business." However, except for The Student Leadership Challenge, they have not (yet) written a book specifically for those who are not in formal leadership roles in organizations. Almost all examples in the six editions of TLC are people in managerial roles in the workplace. This book is for the audience the previous books do not reach: people who are not in formal leadership roles.
There already exists a Leadership Is Everyone's Business (LIEB) workshop with materials offered through Workplace Learning Solutions, which this book will complement. Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership draws from and builds upon material from existing works and is consistent with the TLC framework, but adds all new stories related to this particular audience.
