An Evidence-Based Leadership Model

The Leadership Challenge® is an evidence-based leadership development model backed by over 30 years of rigorous research by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner. Since 1982 Kouzes and Posner have conducted thousands of interviews and surveys to understand the factors at play when people perform at their personal bests. Intensive research and analysis has revealed that five fundamental practices were present during extraordinary leadership achievements. These behaviors are known as The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®. This approach is now the world’s most practical model for leadership development and is helping organizations around the globe develop more effective more efficient and more healthy work environments.

A Proven Framework for Team Cohesion

Highly cohesive teams consistently outperform other groups of people. Why? Because cohesive teams: 

  • Make better faster decisions
  • Tap into the skills and opinions of all members
  • Avoid wasting time and energy on politics confusion and destructive conflict
  • Have more fun while being more productive

In 2002 Patrick Lencioni wrote a leadership fable called The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. Today with over two million copies sold the ideas from this book have had a profound impact on how we view – and improve – teamwork.

The Key to Understanding the Impact of Personality Style

We are all individuals. We are each our own person. And we all have our own preferences and styles. Everything DiSC® is the most effective most reliable tool on the market to help us understand these preferences and styles – both in ourselves and in others. This knowledge leads to better employee communication more cohesive teamwork more productive conflict stronger relationships between co-workers and an overall healthier organization.

Everything DiSC™ is a very simple—and memorable—model comprised of four basic styles: D i S and C. This model can be used to establish a common language that drives better teamwork collaboration and productivity.
