As with an M.D. or a Ph.D. program, achieving the designation of Certified Master of The Leadership Challenge requires a deep commitment, in this case, to The Leadership Challenge brand and model. It demands the highest level of expertise in all applications of the model, including The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® and the LPI®: Leadership Practices Inventory®.
A Certified Master receives their designation by, over time, demonstrating mastery in a wide range of leadership development experiences, including consulting, speaking, and content publishing. To become a Certified Master, an applicant demonstrates commitment and mastery to one or more of the following: workshop facilitation, LPI coaching competence, and the implementation of The Student Leadership Challenge programs. They must establish client credibility, a global mindset, and a collaborative, curious spirit that leads to the ongoing support of our community’s commitment to instilling exemplary leadership within everyone.
