We have developed a mobile tool to work with the concepts and practices within this book that you can use to help yourself along on your leadership journey and development path. The Leadership Challenge Mobile Tool Lite app is free and works with the Take Action sections at the ends of chapters Two through Eleven, adding utility and functionality to the activities located there. The app allows you to immediately integrate some of these Take Action activities into your daily life, making them an ongoing and natural part of your behavioral and attitudinal repertoire. Features include the ability to create and track your own personal Take Action plan, create remind- ers, and share via social media.

The complete Leadership Challenge Mobile Tool is even more robust with everything in the lite version and additional features such as the ability to seamlessly request-and-receive feedback, email activi- ties, and use calendar reminders. It also has more content, including all of the Take Action activities in the book, videos of the authors, a concise overview of The Leadership Challenge model, daily inspira- tional quotes, and a news feed. Initially available in the Apple App Store and others to come, on an ongoing basis, we will develop this app to fit your needs.
