The Challenge Continues


Two of the biggest challenges for public school leaders include:

(1) Finding ways to remain focused while working to develop newly learned skills and behaviors

(2) Sustaining the enthusiasm of the early days following The Leadership Challenge® workshop.

 
The Challenge Continues is designed for leaders who have completed The Leadership Challenge® two-day workshop and at least one instance of the Leadership Practices Inventory 360® online.

  
This is a yearlong series designed to move leaders beyond the foundational leadership challenge knowledge acquired previously. Additionally, some activities ask school leaders to move beyond the self-development focus of previous programs and identify ways of expanding their use of the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® to develop their team members and to influence the broader spheres of their specific work and the school and district.

  
Throughout the series, expect to dive deeper into each of the practices, expand your knowledge base, learn to apply the LPI® to your own leadership practice, gain insight to the research behind the work, and most importantly how to implement The Leadership Challenge® at your school or district in meaningful and sustainable ways.

  
Series dates are July 25, 2018, November 13, 2018, February 8, 2019 and April 19, 2019. The series is designed so leaders may participate in one day or all four days.
