Based on the award-winning book, The Leadership Challenge, by Jim Kouzes, and Barry Posner

leadership challenge

The Leadership Challenge® is an intense 2-day workshop designed to equip leaders with knowledge and tools to take their leadership to the next level.

Designed for those serious about developing as a leader, the curriculum is based on sound research collected over the past 25 years. Aspiring, proven, and even struggling leaders learn how to:

  • Model the Way
  • Inspire a Shared Vision
  • Challenge the Process
  • Enable Others to Act
  • Encourage the Heart

Prior to the workshop, each participant and observers they choose, complete the on-line Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI). During the workshop, each participant receives their own private report outlining the information collected, and learn how to use the LPI to develop as a leader.
