The Leadership Challenge

Wed, 02/13/2019 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
2102 Gallagher Hall - Registration and Pre-Work Required to Participate
Registration Required: This workshop will take you through a detailed analysis of your personal leadership strengths and weaknesses, and introduce you to the 5 practices of exemplary leadership, based on the best-selling book and program, The Leadership Challenge, by James Kouzes and Barry Posner. We will use role-plays, exercises, and videos, to help you incorporate the 5 practices of exemplary leadership in your everyday life. You will also leave this workshop with a plan of action for implementing these exemplary practices and becoming a better leader – a valuable skill you can use in any career, whether in academia or beyond! Pre-Work (Required): All participants must complete the Leadership Practices Inventory Survey, and will enlist 5 of their co-workers, colleagues, or friends/family to anonymously and confidentially rate them in a similar survey. Based on feedback from these surveys, participants will receive a customized summary of their leadership strengths and weaknesses at the start of the workshop. Once registered, you will be contacted about completing the process. Light refreshments will be served to those who register. Instructor: Kimberly D. Elsbach, Professor of Management, Stephen G.
