Using “The Leadership Challenge” to Bring Out the Best in Others

Course Code: 2315

Are you a manager or supervisor who wants to help your people be their best? Are you a leader or coach who wants to help others develop their own leadership skills? Then this course is for you!

Built around The Leadership Challenge (the evidence-based leadership model that’s used across Washington State government), this program equips you to coach others so they will more frequently exhibit the five leadership practices that research shows make all the difference:

  • Modeling the Way
  • Inspiring a Shared Vision
  • Challenging the Process
  • Enabling Others to Act
  • Encouraging the Heart

Central to coaching success is having a feedback instrument that captures actionable insights from a leader’s direct reports, manager, and other colleagues. As part of this course, you will learn how to use an assessment called the Leadership Practices Inventory® 360 (or LPI® 360 for short). The LPI® 360 is one of the most respected leadership development tools available, used by thousands in Washington State and over three million people around the world.

By coaching your people using the LPI®, you will help others build the skills they need to develop higher levels of trust, stronger employee engagement, and better results! If you are functional leader or internal coach who cares about developing the leadership skills of others – this instrument needs to be in your toolkit.

Performance Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Effectively coach and guide any leader to enhance their leadership skills.
  • Use the powerful insights from the LPI® 360 to create individualized leadership development action plans for those you are coaching.
