How Do Leaders Learn to Lead?

Learning Leadership sample chapter

James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner have written a new book that examines these fundamental questions: How do people learn leadership? How do they learn to become leaders?

Through their research, they have uncovered a few leadership "Myths" that hold leaders back:

  • The Talent Myth:  "You either have it or you don't."
  • The Position Myth:  “Leaders are only found at the top.”
  • The Strengths Myth:  “Only focus on what you are good at.”
  • The Self-Reliance Myth:  “If you can't do it yourself it isn't worth doing."
  • The It-Comes-Naturally Myth: “You don't need to practice.”
