The Challenge Continues

"The next chapter of The Leadership Challenge® Journey"


The Challenge Continues (TCC) 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 three-summit series is designed to move The Leadership Challenge® leaders beyond the foundational tools and skills 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 team members and to influence the broader work of their schools and districts.

EILA credit will be awarded based on session times. 

Like all school leaders, KASA The Leadership Challenge® alumni are always looking for ways to implement newly learned skills and behaviors, and then maintaining the enthusiasm of the early days following The Leadership Challenge® workshops.

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.

Special Announcement:
New this year! 
Those who have previously completed The Challenge Continues® series may extend their learning with differentiated content delivered through an advanced breakout group at each cohort meeting.

There is no more cost-effective way to continue your Leadership Challenge® journey with like-minded colleagues.

For more information, contact Owens Saylor
