The Leadership Challenge

The Leadership Challenge book has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. Developed from over 30 years of research by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, it is a tested and proven method for developing leadership effectiveness of any leader in organizations. It is based on the simple idea that leaders, teams, and organizations improve when ordinary people enable those around them to achieve incredible things.

The Leadership Challenge® is based on The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership model, endowing participants with a common leadership language and set of behaviors linked to effective leadership. It uses the powerful LPI®: Leadership Practices Inventory® assessment to gauge the leadership skills and effectiveness of any leader, regardless of position. The program is ideal for any organization because it is adaptable, learnable, and easy to implement.

Anyone can be a leader and The Leadership Challenge® helps participants learn how to mobilize others to get extraordinary things done as a leader. A variety of programs based on The Leadership Challenge are available to train your emerging leaders, managers, senior executives, and other leaders.
