"Leadership development is self-development. The quest for leadership is first an inner quest to discover who you are. That is clearly the premise of this wonderful collection of developmental activities. They guide learners on that fascinating journey of self-awareness and self-confidence that can only come from experiencing something in themselves for themselves."-- from the foreword by James M. Kouzes, co-author, The Leadership Challenge When it comes to preparing a new generation of leaders, trainers have their work cut out for them.
