“Change is the province of leaders. It is the work of leaders to inspire people to do things differently, to struggle against uncertain odds, and to persevere toward a misty image of a better future.” – James M. Kouzes
‘The Leadership Challenge’ is a leadership development program containing a set of ﬁve practices, set within a research-based framework that helps leaders perform to their potential. It converts values into actions, visions into reality, obstacles into opportunity, separateness into solidarity, and risk into rewards. Approaching leadership as a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors, ‘The Leadership Challenge’ framework grew out of rigorous research that first began in 1982 when Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner 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® that will be taught in this workshop, continues to prove its effectiveness in cultivating and liberating the leadership potential.
To successfully complete in this workshop course, participants will be required to complete a pre-course Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI®), a brief worksheet, and in-workshop activities. This course will be highly interactive and engaging. Therefore, is essential that participants arrive to the course on-time each day and are prepared to interact with the course leader and engage with their peers in group work.
This course is ideal for selected managers of the Model Hospital
