Q: How do I introduce The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® to attendees prior to a workshop or to persons who will not have the opportunity to attend a workshop?
A: The Leadership Challenge eLearning Program! Co-developed with award-winning e-learning developer Enspire Learning, this new Leadership Challenge resource is a 130-minute introductory-level modular e-learning course based on The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® (the core Leadership Challenge model). Working individually, employees will engage with the content through a story-based scenario, creative interactivities, and multimedia. Each Practice module includes didactic learning, photo-based case studies and stories, and basic interactivities such as multiple-choice questions, matching quizzes, self-reflection exercises, and opportunities for personal application of the concepts.
The program begins with an Orienteering module: a welcome video message from Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, an overview of the model, and an introduction of the workplace characters and their story. Learners are asked to write out their own Personal Best Leadership Experience and a Current Leadership Challenge that they will work through as they progress through the modules. The program then takes learners through each of the Five Practices: Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart. A Commitment module concludes this e-learning program, encouraging learners to continue their leadership journey with specific goals and an action plan.
