May 13-14, 2019—Indianapolis, Indiana

There is a fundamental truth about leadership that lies at the very heart of The Leadership Challenge® Workshop and sets this program apart from all others. That truth is: leadership is everyone’s business. It’s not a place or position. It’s not a rank or title. 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 The Leadership Challenge Workshop offers a proven path to guide your journey to individual and cultural leadership change. This immensely practical and hands-on experience is designed to inspire, engage, and help you develop the leadership skills needed to meet whatever leadership challenges lay ahead.

The core curriculum is structured around seven components, including five independent modules that focus specifically on 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.
