The Leadership Challenge® Workshop

Session Overview

KASA is proud to bring The Leadership Challenge® Workshop to Kentucky. It is grounded in the award-winning book on leadership, The Leadership Challenge®, co-authored by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner. This leadership resource is research-driven and is about how everyday leaders mobilize others to want to get extraordinary things done. It’s about the best practices leaders use to transform values into actions, visions into realities, obstacles into innovations, separateness into solidarity, and risks into rewards. It’s about creating a climate in which people turn challenging opportunities into remarkable successes.

The Leadership Challenge® Workshop is a unique intensive program that consistently receives rave reviews from participants. It has served as a catalyst for profound leadership transformations in organizations of all sizes and in all industries. The program is highly interactive and stimulating. Participants experience and apply The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® through large and small group discussions, individual reflection and workbook planning, case studies from the research of The Leadership Challenge®, experiential activities and application to their own leadership challenges.

The two-day workshop has seven modules: an opening module to set the course for learning about leadership and individual results of the LPI 360 – Leadership Practices Inventory, a module for each of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® and a closing application/action planning module.
