We are using two books:

1. Soul, Salsa and Spirit: Leadership for a Multicultural Age, by Juana Bordas

Publisher: Berrett-Koehler Publishers; 2 edition (March 26, 2012)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 9781609941178
ISBN-13: 978-1609941178
ASIN: 1609941179

2. The Leadership Challenge by James Kouzes and Barry Posner, Jossey Bass publisher, 2016 (6th edition).

It's a popular book that you might be able to pick up in a commercial bookstore. Make sure you have the current fifth or sixth edition. Older editions won't work for the course because the authors make many changes in each addition.

As an alternative, you can use the ebook through the library. The library link is:

These books can be used by an unlimited number of users at once online, sections can be printed (though different books have different limitations), and they can be downloaded for offline use for limited loan periods.
