Over the last twenty-five years, The Leadership Challenge established a reputation as a research-driven, evidence-based leadership development model with a simple, yet profound, principle at its core: leadership is a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors. For leaders who have completed either The Leadership Challenge? Workshop, The Leadership Is Everyone's Business Workshop, or the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI), this new program addresses the important question:
Responding to your toughest leadership development challenges, this innovative and flexible program encourages leaders to remain focused on what they learned during their original exposure to The Five Practices? model, while challenging them to continue implementing their new skills and behaviors over time. The Challenge Continues modules are intended for brief follow-up/refresher sessions that will move leaders beyond their foundational Leadership Challenge knowledge. Participants are asked to share and reflect on the small wins they have experienced since their Leadership Challenge journey began, and then practice specific skills and behaviors that will prepare them for them for the next leg of their journey. They are also shown how to identify opportunities to expand their use of The Practices for team member development and the influencing of broader spheres of their work units or organizations.The Challenge Continues includes five 90-minute modules (one for each of The Five Practices) along with delivery instructions for both the traditional classroom/coaching settings or the virtual classroom. This comprehensive Facilitator's Guide provides everything needed to prepare for and deliver a high-impact leadership development program for leaders at all levels. It includes step-by-step instructions and customizable presentation scripts for conducting the powerful sessions. In addition, this package contains a flash drive with all of the Facilitator Guide content, forms, and presentation slides; sample copies of the five Participant Workbooks are also provided. A bonus section at the end of the Facilitator's Guide explores ways in which facilitators can continue to extend their participant's learning including overviews of other related models (Covey's Seven Habits, emotional intelligence, leadership ethics, servant leadership, leveraging talents and strengths, storytelling) as well as follow-up activities such as leadership book clubs and how to use Web 2.0/social networking technologies. Built upon a time-tested and evidence-based foundation, The Challenge Continues offers a proven method for developing high-performing leaders in any organization.
