Based on the work of Kouzes and Posner, The Leadership Challenge (TLC) model has always been the gold-standard for exemplary leadership. It approaches leadership as learnable through five practices, and measurable through an observable set of behaviours, complimenting the personality of any aspiring leader.
Even in different eras, Core leadership skills stay the same.
Built strong, they are adaptable and transferable across time.

What Will You Learn?
The Leadership Challenge focuses on the 5 Practices of Exemplary Leaders
1. Model the Way
Leaders establish principles concerning the way people (constituents, peers, colleagues and customers alike) should be treated and the way goals should be pursued. They create standards of excellence and then set an example for others to follow.
2. Inspired a Shared Vision
Leaders passionately believe that they can make a difference. They envision the future, creating an ideal and unique image of what the organization can become. Through their magnetism and quiet persuasion, leaders enlist others in their dreams. They breathe life into their visions and get people to see exciting possibilities for the future.
3. Challenge the Process
Leaders search for opportunities to challenge the status quo. They look for innovative ways to improve the organization. In doing so, they experiment and take risks. Leaders know how to create an environment that allows exploration, innovation to become more effective and productive.
4. Enable Others to Act
Leaders foster collaboration and build spirited teams. They actively involve others. Leaders understand that mutual respect is what sustains extraordinary efforts; they strive to create an atmosphere of trust and human dignity. They strengthen others, making each person feel capable and powerful. Higher engagement of staff translates to higher productivity and profitability.
5. Encourage the Heart
Accomplishing extraordinary things in organizations is hard work. To keep hope and determination alive, leaders recognize contributions that individuals make. In every winning team, the members need to share the rewards of efforts, so leaders celebrate accomplishments. They make people
feel like heroes.
