About The Leadership Challenge
Approaching leadership as a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors, The Leadership Challenge® framework grew out of rigorous research by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, who set out to understand those times when leaders performed at their personal best. They conducted hundreds of interviews and reviewed hundreds of cases studies and survey questionnaires. What emerged were five fundamental practices common to extraordinary leadership achievements. Now known worldwide as the most practical model of leadership development, The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® continues to prove its effectiveness in cultivating and liberating the leadership potential in anyone via the LPI®: Leadership Practices Inventory®—at any level, in any organization—who accepts the challenge to lead.
