“The Leadership Challenge” - Kouzes & Posner Model
People often hesitate when they are asked to talk about their most admired leaders. Many of the greatest leaders mentioned are dead, and it seems much easier to think of examples of bad leadership. Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, authors of “The Leadership Challenge®”, collected thousands of stories about extraordinary leadership as part of an intensive research project to determine the characteristics of the most successful leaders. There are many useful leadership models, but the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® revealed by the Kouzes-Posner study is one of the most memorable and easy to implement. This module enables people who wish to become great leaders to learn and adopt the practices of “model the way, inspire a shared vision, challenge the process, enable other people to act, and encourage the heart” with immediate and dramatically improved results.
