Course Methodology

Despite its obvious academic rigor, The Leadership Challenge® is anything but a theory of unreachable ideals. On the contrary, the workshop is about specific, understandable and practical behaviors that can be learned and applied in any setting. The program will engage participants through experiential activities, workbook exercises, group problem solving tasks, and presentations. Participants will also get plenty of hands-on experience by applying The 'Five Practices' leadership model to current organizational and personal leadership challenges.
