Refreshed and Updated for the Next Generation Leader
Over the last twenty-five years, The Leadership Challenge established a reputation as a research-driven, evidence-based leadership development model with a simple, yet profound, principle at its core: leadership is a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors.
In this new edition of The Leadership Challenge® Workshop, bestselling authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner advocate for broadening the reach of our leadership development efforts. In today's challenging and complex workplace, leaders are desperately needed from the front lines to the executive suites. The secret of high-performing organizations is that everyone within them knows that leadership-at-all-levels is expected and rewarded, and that individuals everywhere are responsible for making extraordinary things happen.
This comprehensive Facilitator's Guide provides everything needed to prepare for and deliver a high-impact leadership development program for leaders at all levels. It includes an introduction to the model, detailed preparation instructions and checklists, and a customizable presentation script for conducting the standard 2-day workshop. In addition, this package also contains a Five Practices/Ten Commitments poster and flash drive that contains all the Facilitator's Guide content, forms, and presentation slides, and a DVD with all video content. Sample copies of all participant material are also included in the packageParticipant Workbook, An Introduction to The Five Practices Workbook, Practice Book, Vision Book, Values Cards, and The Leadership Challenge Card.
