Since 1983 Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner have been researching leadership. They’ve examined real-life cases and analyzed 360-degree assessments from hundreds of thousands of leaders and over two million observers. From their analyses of the data they've found that there are Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® that leaders demonstrate when performing at their best. Exemplary leaders Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.

Leading in Turbulent Times: Seven Ways to Strengthen Resilience in Your Organization
As surprising as it may sound, in challenging and difficult times we are likely to see more extraordinary leadership than in times of stability. Leaders, it turns out, don’t do their best when they're maintaining the status quo or when they feel comfortable. They do their best when faced with adversity, crisis, setbacks, and great difficulty. Challenge is the opportunity for greatness. In this session, you’ll learn seven strategies for turning adversity into opportunity, and challenge into positive change.
You Can't Do It Alone: What It Takes to Create a High-Performing Team
The "Lone Ranger" view of leadership is pure myth. When it comes to superior performance, not one leader has ever done anything extraordinary by himself or herself. Collaboration out-produces both competition and individualistic efforts when it comes to achieving excellence. In this session, you’ll learn the essentials for fostering collaboration and strengthening others. You’ll learn what it takes to build trust and increase the sense of competence and confidence in your teams.
Encouraging the Heart: A Guide to Rewarding and Recognizing Others
Making extraordinary things happen in organizations is hard work. The challenges are immense and sometimes frightening. Against these odds leaders must provide encouragement and hope.

A Leader's Legacy: Affirming the Difference You Want to Make in the World
There are countless opportunities to make a difference. Each and every day there are many moments when you can choose to lead and many moments when you can choose to make a difference. All of these moments serve up the prospect of contributing to a lasting legacy. And the legacy you leave is the LIFE you lead. In this session you will learn the four primary ways you leave a legacy, and you will reflect on how you want to make a difference in all of them. When you leave this session, you will have a much clearer idea of the difference you want to make at home, at work, and in the community.
Leadership Is Everyone's Business: It’s Not About Position It’s About What You Do
Leadership is not the private reserve of a few charismatic men and women. It’s a set of skills and abilities learnable by anyone. What you do is far more important than your title, your level, your function, your industry, your educational background, your gender, or any other demographic variable. The truest test of leadership is whether you turn your followers into leaders. In this session you’ll learn what people most expect of their leaders, who their most important leader role models are, and the universal and enduring practices that leaders demonstrate to make extraordinary things happen in organizations.
