The Leadership Challenge®  Workshop is a unique, intensive and highly interactive experience that has served as the catalyst for profound leadership transformation in organizations of all sizes and in all industries.


Creators Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner have spent over 30 years gathering evidence on what great leaders do.  They've distilled that evidence into five clearly defined Practices that anyone can follow to get breakthrough results.




Because your organization is unique, we offer you the choice of conducting this training over a two-day period, or spreading it out over time, with six, 2-hour sessions.  The choice is yours.




The program begins with a 360 degree leadership assessment (LPI), through which participants will be provided with a personalized analysis of how often they are currently using the leadership practices.



Immensely practical and hands-on, The Leadership Challenge Workshop is designed to inspire, engage and help leaders develop the skills needed to meet whatever leadership challenges lay ahead.  The core curriculum is based around the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership.

The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership

Model the Way
Leaders establish principles concerning the way people (constituents, peers, colleagues, and customers alike) should be treated and the way goals should be pursued. They create standards of excellence and then set an example for others to follow.


Inspire a Shared Vision
Leaders passionately believe that they can make a difference. They envision the future, creating an ideal and unique image of what the organization can become. Through their magnetism and quiet persuasion, leaders enlist others in their dreams. They breathe life into their visions and get people to see exciting possibilities for the future.

Challenge The Process
Leaders search for opportunities to change the status quo. They look for innovative ways to improve the organization. In doing so, they experiment and take risks. And because leaders know that risk taking involves mistakes and failures, they accept the inevitable disappointments as learning opportunities.

Enable Others to Act
Leaders foster collaboration and build spirited teams. They actively involve others. Leaders understand that mutual respect is what sustains extraordinary efforts; they strive to create an atmosphere of trust and human dignity. They strengthen others, making each person feel capable and powerful.

Encourage the Heart
Accomplishing extraordinary things in organizations is hard work. To keep hope and determination alive, leaders recognize contributions that individuals make. In every winning team, the members need to share in the rewards of their efforts, so leaders celebrate accomplishments. They make people feel like heroes.
