The Leadership Challenge®
As a key element of the KELA curriculum, participants will experience the initial Leadership Challenge® two-day training led by KASA staff.  Based on extensive research by Kouzes & Posner, The Leadership Challenge® establishes five core practices and thirty (30) specific behaviors demonstrated by exemplary leaders. In addition, each KELA cohort member will be given access to complete a 360° Leadership Profile Inventory® (LPI).  Participation in The Leadership Challenge® training comes at no additional cost to participants.
