What Leaders Do to Get Extraordinary Things Done in Organizations

The Leadership Challenge® Workshop Program Summary:
The Leadership Challenge is a research-based leadership development model. The workshop design uses practical application gleaned from twenty five years of research to transform individuals, teams, and organizations. The workshop is a combination of 16 hours of in-class instruction, in addition to each participant receiving four one-on-one coaching sessions.
Based on the award-winning book, The Leadership Challenge, by James Kouzes and Barry Posner whose research began in the early 1980s
Participants experience and apply The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® through cases, workbook exercises, group problem-solving tasks, lectures and optional outdoor action learning. This workshop is ideal for organizations who wish to develop leaders who consistently get better results

The Leadership Challenge® Five Practices

Leaders model the way
Leaders have strong beliefs about matters of principle. To be able to clearly articulate their beliefs, leaders find their voice by clarifying personal values. But clarity is not enough. To be credible, leaders do what they say they will do. They set the example by aligning actions with shared values.

Leaders inspire a shared vision
They look across the horizon of time and envision an ennobling and uplifting future. Leaders are positive, they bring the future to life, and they enlist others in a common cause.

Leaders challenge the process
They are pioneers, willing to step out and change the way things are. They experiment and take risks and learn from the accompanying mistakes.

Leaders enable others to act
They know they cannot do it alone, so they foster collaboration and strengthen others. By actively involving people in planning and decision-making, and through daily acts of trust and respect, leaders increase the competence and confidence of their constituents.

Leaders encourage the heart
The climb to the top is arduous and steep and because leaders ask constituents to carry out difficult tasks. Leaders recognize and reward individuals along the way and they celebrate achievement and milestones. Genuine acts of caring draw people forward.
