May 15 & 16, 2019—Indianapolis, Indiana

Ready to bring The Leadership Challenge® Workshop to your organization by becoming a Trained Facilitator? From the front lines to the C-Suite, leadership is a set of skills and abilities that can be learned by anyone with the desire and dedication to fully develop their leadership potential. And your facilitation team can bring it to them!

The Leadership Challenge Facilitator Training will provide you with immensely practical and hands-on experience in facilitating the workshop.

Day 1 includes a hands-on review of the workshop, with mini-facilitation practices for each participant.

Day 2 gives an example of a one-day Leadership Challenge Workshop, with participants doing “teach-backs” of each of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®: Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Encourage Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.
