Great Leadership Creates Great Workplace

 

Think about a time you were at your personal best as a leader.  What were the key actions and behaviors you took as the leader that made a difference?

1st ed of the Leadership Challenge “I think good people deserve good leadership.  The people I manage deserve the best leadership in the workplace,” Debi Coleman, Synopsys.

The Leadership Challenge and Five Practices started in 1982 when Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner set out to identify and understand those times when leaders performed at their best. What came out of the research were the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership.  The LPI 360 assessment (also available in a self-version) gauges the frequency that leaders display each of the 30 behaviors that make up the TLC model.  The Leadership Challenge is a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors.  Give leaders a framework and a common language.  It gets all leaders in your organization on the same language.  It allows all Leaders to get on the same page.  It is treating people with dignity and respect.

What is the LPI 360?

As a certified coach for the LPI 360 Assessment, I offer a powerful observer-based assessment that measures The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®. Created by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, this acclaimed leadership development model allows leaders to assess their leadership competencies and take actionable steps based on their discoveries. With the LPI® 360, leaders receive a detailed report that helps them embark on a journey toward achieving the extraordinary and reaching their leadership best.
