Bringing The Leadership Challenge to your Organisation

This is highly interactive experience that has been the start of profound leadership transformations in organizations, large and small across the globe. Participants often describe how The Leadership Challenge® is more than a training program – this workshop significantly changes business outcomes, careers – and changes lives.

The Leadership Challenge® Workshop will engage participants at all levels of the organization through experiential activities, workbook exercises, group problem-solving tasks, video cases, and facilitator led discussions.

The workshop is designed to inspire, engage, and help your leaders develop the skills needed to meet whatever leadership challenges lay ahead. The foundation of this is The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®. Each module describes the practice and then the individual reviews their Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) report. Participants are then asked to reflect on how they can apply that Practice to a current leadership challenge.

The leadership action-based development plan which they individually develop, based on The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® and their LPI report, can be implemented immediately they return to the workplace.

What participants receive –

  • A unique and highly interactive three-day program that focuses on The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®, developed from the original, on-going and evidence-based research of bestselling authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner
