Are you a small business owner who needs to assess your leadership effectiveness? Explore best practices with other local business owners? Create your own personal development plan to strengthen your leadership skills? If so, then you are ready to take the challenge!
The Leadership Challenge is a leadership development model based on more than 30 years of rigorous research by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner.
Three West Hartford residents have already completed The Leadership Challenge: Jennifer Fabas, Maggie LaLima, and Wanda Williams-McCormack. All three were interested in taking their performances to the next level by refining their leadership skills, leveraging their strengths, and clarifying their goals in order to set a new course for their futures.
The Leadership Challenge is an intensive and highly interactive leadership development experience that Williams-McCormack says was “phenomenal.” Fabas echoes those thoughts, claiming that The Leadership Challenge “was a fantastic opportunity to learn how to improve my leadership skills.”
Participants received personalized attention in their exploration of the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership by Kouzes and Posner, five fundamental practices that are always present during extraordinary leadership achievements: Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart. According to LaLima, The Challenge “taught me leadership skills that were pivotal to my career.”
