High Potential Leaders Program

Challenge to Lead Program for High Potential Leaders

Introduction

Technical or expert ability is one thing, leadership is another. Organisations desperately need leaders who can motivate and inspire, drive performance, and make the tough decisions required to be successful. Effective leadership is therefore in high demand and is a must have capability for anyone wanting to get ahead in the world to achieve more and earn more.

The Challenge to Lead program for High Potential Leaders is an exciting and intensive residential program. It liberates the leader within and enables participants to make extraordinary things happen … for themselves, their followers, their organisation, and the world.

Based on extensively researched and internationally acclaimed material written by Kouzes and Posner, these all-new programs cast their enduring work on The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® in the context of today’s world. With best-in- class published materials and a tried and tested experiential learning process, Kouzes and Posner have proven that leadership can be learned, nurtured, and most importantly, measured.

Who should attend?

The Challenge to Lead program for High Potential Leaders is targeted at managers from any business or government background, who are high achievers and want to make more of a significant difference through improved leadership. Participants qualifying to attend this program must be employed at the level of:

  • Not yet a manager, or
  • Manager-of-people, or
  • Manager-of-managers
Grouping participants working at a similar level enables us to relate the program content to the challenges and practical problems experienced by them at their level of management. This approach takes Kouzes and Posner’s Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® and incorporates additional content, examples, practical exercises, and references to:
  • Specific leadership challenges experienced by participants at their level of management;
  • The integration of leadership with the practice of management at participant’s specific level;
  • Self-leadership and self-management principles and theories;
  • The impact and role of effective leadership in talent development and succession planning

Measurement and post-program improvement

Self-discovery and self-awareness are essential to developing our capacity to lead. And a core component in that process includes personal reflection and analysis of our own behaviours as leaders. Equally as valuable is insight and feedback from those around us who know us well, who have experience of us in our role as a leader.

The Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) 360-degree assessment developed by Kouzes and Posner, measures leadership behaviours and provides the cornerstone of our Challenge to Lead programs. It contains 30 behavioural statements—six for each of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®—and takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete. With data gathered from over 3 million leaders around the world, the LPI is based on an incomparable foundation of original, evidence-based research and rigorous testing, completed over more than 25 years. Millions of people have used the LPI 360 as a first step to reaching their personal leadership best—a clear indication that leadership is a practice that can be learned by anyone, and is not an inborn skill for the lucky few.

The LPI 360 is completed by all Challenge to Lead participants prior to attending the program and then again 5 months after completion, with a report being generated to show before and after results in leadership growth and development.

In order to realise lasting improvement, the following post program activities are incorporated:

  • Ongoing exercises that encourage continuous improvement and habitual application of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®;
  • Post-programme assessment report on individual growth in leadership capability by comparing results of the pre-and post-program 360-degree assessments;
  • Optional one-on-one coaching with 6 sessions spread over approximately 6 months for participants and organisations interested in maximising development and change.

The Challenge to Lead programs provide an eminently practical, experiential and exhilarating model of leadership development that has proven effectiveness in liberating the leadership potential in any person, at any level, in any organisation.
