The Leadership Challenge Special Nonprofit Offering

Achieve The Extraordinary

International Leadership Associates is pleased to offer a special 2 day, leadership experience for nonprofit leaders in the Denver, CO area on  March 21 – 22. It is being offered at a deeply discounted tuition, as our gift to those who selflessly serve others, with limited funds for development of this kind.

The program will explore in detail The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®, one of the most effective and widely used leadership models in the world today. You may have heard of it from the worldwide best selling book, The Leadership Challenge, by authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner.

Thoroughly research-based and totally practical, this session will allow you to immediately become the better leader others around you need you to be.

Program Value: (what participants return to work with)

• A clear understanding of what leaders focus on most frequently when they are leading at their best
• The confidence, willingness and more capabilities to actually step up and lead
• Strategies for immediately equipping their people to achieve better results
• Ability to build more trust and understanding with their colleagues, crucial for leaders
Increased credibility as a leader
More courage (and commitment) to do things differently
Lessons that stick over time


Learn more about what participants receive,  and other information about the program. There is a substantial discount for this program – the tuition for the nonprofit leaders is $150; which is a small fraction of the typical $1999 public workshop tuition. Do not miss out on this opportunity.
