Leadership Challenge

"Leadership is not the private reserve of a lucky few. It is an observable and learnable set of skills and abilities that are applicable at all levels." 
-- Jim Kouzes & Barry Posner, authors of The Leadership Challenge®


Cabrillo College Corporate Training


The Leadership Challenge 2-Day Workshop

Coming Soon!

The Leadership Challenge® Workshop is a unique, intensive and highly interactive experience that has served as a catalyst for profound leadership transformation in organizations of all sizes and in all industries. Immensely practical and hands-on, The Leadership Challenge® Workshop is designed to inspire, engage, and help you as a leader develop the skills you need to meet whatever leadership challenges lay ahead. The core curriculum is structured around seven components, including five independent modules that focus specifically on each of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®.  Each module describes the practice, reviews the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) items related to that practice, and ends with techniques that asks participants to reflect on how to apply what they’ve have learned to a current leadership challenge of their own. With a plan of action in-hand for taking the key learnings from the workshop back to the workplace, you will be prepared to implement your new leadership practices back on the job, beginning Day One.

What is included

  1. Two days of intensive training designed to help you put your LPI (Leadership Practices Inventory) feedback to use immediately in your development as a leader.
  2. The Leadership Practices Inventory Online 360 Assessment: includes LPI Self and up to 20 LPI Observers (direct reports, manager, co-workers, etc.). Participants receive confidential feedback relating to the frequency of their use of The Five Practices.
  3. Light continental breakfast each morning and afternoon snacks.
  4. Camaraderie and connection with other local leaders.
  5. A truly memorable experience, with lessons that stick.

About the LPI

The Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) is a 360 feedback tool that provides leaders with valuable feedback from managers, coworkers, direct reports and others who have direct experience wit the leader in a leadership role.

Over three million people have used The Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) as a first step to reaching their personal leadership best, clearly demonstrating what three decades of ongoing research affirms: that leadership is a practice that can be taught and learned by anyone. 

What Does LPI Measure?
Applying the proven principles of Kouzes and Posner's acclaimed Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®, LPI enables individuals and organizations to measure their leadership competencies and act on their discoveries. Leaders will gain deep insight into how they see themselves as leaders, how others view them, and what actions they can take to improve their effectiveness.

The LPI contains 30 items and can be completed in less than 15 minutes. It is delivered online, and is accessible 24/7.
