James Kouzes's profile Chairman emeritus of the Tom Peters Company, a professional services firm which specializes in leadership development. He's also an executive fellow in the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University.

Jim is the co-author with Barry Posner of the award-winning book, The Leadership Challenge: How to Keep Getting Extraordinary Things Done in Organizations, which is now in its second edition (1995) with over one million copies in print. The Leadership Challenge, available in eleven languages, has been a selection of the Macmillan Executive Book Club and the Fortune Book Club. It's the winner of the 1989 James A. Hamilton Hospital Administrators' Book, the 1995-96 Critics' Choice Award, and was a BusinessWeek bestseller in 2001. Jim and Barry have also co-authored Credibility: How Leaders Gain and Lose It, Why People Demand It, which was chosen by Industry Week as one of the ten best management books of 1993. Their newest books, Encouraging the Heart and The Leadership Challenge Planner, were released in 1999. Based on solid research involving over 70,000 surveys, 1,000 written case studies, and 100 in-depth interviews, these books describe the leadership principles and practices that generate high performance in individuals and organizations.

Jim and Barry developed the widely used and highly acclaimed Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI), a 360° questionnaire assessing leadership behavior (Jossey-Bass/Pfeiffer, 1988-2001). The LPI has been administered to over 250,000 individuals, and over one million observers have provided feedback using the LPI. Over 150 doctoral dissertations and academic research projects have been based on their Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership™ model.

Jim and Barry were honored by the International Management Council (IMC) as the 2001 recipients of the prestigious Wilbur M. McFeely Award. Past McFeely Award recipients include: Peter Drucker, Lee Iacocca, Tom Peters, Ken Blanchard, Norman Vincent Peale, Francis Hesselbein, Stephen Covey, and Rosabeth Moss Kanter. Jim is featured as one of workplace experts in What Works at Work: Lessons from the Masters by George Dixon (1988) and in Learning Journeys: Top Management Experts Share Hard-Earned Lessons on Becoming Great Mentors and Leaders edited by Marshall Goldsmith, Beverly Kaye and Ken Shelton (2000).

Not only is Jim a highly-regarded leadership scholar and experienced executive, The Wall Street Journal has cited Jim as one of the twelve most requested "nonuniversity executive-education providers" to U. S. companies. A popular speaker, Jim shares lessons learned about leadership from over 20 years of original research. He leaves his audiences inspired with practical leadership tools and tips that to apply at work, at home, and in their communities.

Jim directed the Executive Development Center at Santa Clara University from 1981 through 1987. Under his leadership the EDC was awarded two gold medals from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education. He also founded the Joint Center for Human Services Development at San Jose State University, which he managed from 1972 until 1980.

Jim's interest in leadership began while he was growing up in Washington, D. C. In 1961 he was one of a dozen Eagle Scouts selected to serve in John F. Kennedy's Honor Guard at the presidential inauguration. Inspired by Kennedy, he served as a Peace Corps volunteer from 1967 through 1969.
