“The simple model provides framework that’s easy to relate to with clear behaviors that enable action. Experiential elements help you immediately practice new skills in a safe, fun yet incredibly insightful way. People thank me months later not only for the investment in them, but also for the great insight it’s given them to get to the next level in their leadership journey.”
— Dave Palm, SVP, Operations, 84.51°

“The Leadership Challenge at Camp Joy has become the centerpiece of our leadership program and has been a key driver in advancing the culture of our organization. By applying this model, our leaders are intentional about leading. “This commitment has had positive results not only on our culture, but on business results.”
— Brian Lawlor, Sr. VP, Broadcast, The E.W. Scripps Company

“Getting out of my comfort zone and applying everything I learned, made it more real, and I still have the practices pasted all over my office. Everyone takes away something that resonates with them personally. It’s so impactful, I’ve brought different groups out two more times.”
— Jodi Landers, Superintendent, St Joseph Orphanage

“Applies to leaders at all levels and will translate immediately. LPI feedback was a catalyst for us working better together. It’s not theory, it’s practice and behavior that’s very tangible. When your actions line up with the life you’re leading, you have credibility.”
— Jeff Walton, Leader Human Resources at Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden

Please complete our registration form to get started. We will contact you with all the logistical details of your stay. In addition, a few weeks before the session, we will send you a pre-work package. One of the most impactful parts of the program is the Leadership Practices Inventory®. Through this instrument, you will request feedback from peers, subordinates and supervisor. Be thinking of at least 10 colleagues who see you in action. No need to send payment now. We will gather all that information in our follow-up call.
