Publisher's Summary

If your desire is to create the perfect work environment - where people are motivated, trust one another, and share similar goals and visions - and to establish an atmosphere of hope regardless of what your organization is going through, then Achieving Credibility is the blueprint for you.

In our era of companies that we hear negative things about almost weekly, where leadership is mistrusted and the foundational principles of organizations are abandoned, where the bottom line is the only thing observed, Jim Kouzes gives us a breath of fresh air and hope that you can build an organization for which good morals and values are the foundation and which can be extremely successful. His powerful examples are throughout this program will inspire you. While leadership is Kouzes' main thrust, his themes of trust, honesty, sensitivity to diversity, sustaining hope, and engendering community are skills for anyone who works with people.

With employees, bosses, customers, vendors, business partners, with family and friends ... we need to be credible with all the people in our lives to accomplish almost any objective we set for ourselves. This is a must-listen for all managers, leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals who can't do their job alone.

Includes a special introduction by Tom Peters.

    "Uncharacteristically lame"
    What was most disappointing about James M. Kouzes and Tom Peters (introduction) ’s story?

    I love everything Tom Peters has written, the intro to this book being no exception. The problem wasn't Peters; it's that Kouzes didn't deliver. Don't get me wrong, Kouzes and Posner have done extraordinary work over the course of their professional lives. And if you've read it, then you won't need this book. It's merely an unorganized, repetitive hodgepodge narrative of Kouzes's ramblings. I bought the book hoping for new insights but this book offers none. I couldn't help but think of the irony of how such a piece of work is discrediting to an author who literally wrote the book on credibility. That said, if you want to understand the topic, I highly recommend the book The Leadership Challenge and the book Credibility by Posner and Kouzes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narration was fine.


    What character would you cut from Achieving Credibility?

    N/A-this is a non-fictional work.

    "Never rated a book before, but had to on this one"

    I have been waiting for a new book from Tom Peters, but this one very credibly took its place. This book should be required listening for our children, as well as anyone who chooses to hear a true perspective on how to make it in this world. I can't speak highly enough about the content. If you want to hear the truth, YOU ONLY NEED THIS BOOK. Don't waste your time on any others.
