About Ira Chaleff

Ira Chaleff is an author, speaker, workshop presenter and innovative thinker on the beneficial use of power between those who are leading and those who are following in any given situation. His groundbreaking book, "The Courageous Follower: Standing Up To and For Our Leaders", is in its third edition, has been published in multiple languages and is in use in institutions around the globe including educational, corporate, government and military organizations. He is co-editor of "The Art of Followership: How Great Followers Make Great Leaders and Organizations", part of the highly regarded Warren Bennis Leadership Series. He has written on the appropriate use of power in non-traditional settings in his creative non-fiction work, "The Limits of Violence: Lessons of a Revolutionary Life". 

Ira's later book, "Intelligent Disobedience: Doing Right When What You're Told To Do Is Wrong", once again breaks new ground by exploring the deep cultural roots of obedience and how to equip individuals of all ages to resist inappropriate orders and find better ways and ethical means of achieving legitimate goals.

He has recently completed two terms of service as a member of the Board of Directos of the International Leadership Association (ILA) and is the founder of its Followership Member Community. He is currently mentoring a community of academics and professionals in the field of courageous followership through the Teaching Followers Courage project.
