Leadership Challenge

Students Today,
Leaders Tomorrow

Empower the Leaders of Tomorrow

Instilling leadership skills in the students of today creates a better tomorrow. The Student Leadership Challenge® guides and develops students who have yet to gain formal business and leadership experience by teaching them The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®. By exercising these behaviors, all students, no matter their background or GPA, can lead and light the way into the future.

The Student Leadership Challenge works for developing leaders in high school and college classrooms, student governments, clubs, fraternities and sororities, FYE programs, service programs, teams, and youth organizations.


The Learning Experience

The complete experience of The Student Leadership Challenge® includes the Student LPI®: Leadership Practices Inventory®, the book, and the classroom working together. The book fosters an understanding of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® that allows the Student LPI and classroom experience to create an even deeper impact.

    The Book

    The Student LPI® Assessment

    The Student LPI 360 assessment measures how frequently students engage in the 30 behaviors that lead to the best leadership outcomes. It allows students to understand their behaviors and receive feedback from mentors, educators, and peers. The LPI lets students own their development, identify where to improve, analyze their results over time, and make comparisons across groups.

    The Classroom
