From the very beginning,
ILA has been using the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®
as its process model for leadership development. Developed
by noted researchers and award-winning authors, James M. Kouzes
and Barry Z. Posner, this model has continued to prove itself day
by day, year after year, in organization after organization.
For more information about it, we highly recommend you read The
Leadership Challenge, in which Jim and Barry detail the powerful
lessons brought forth in this model. If you want to learn
how to become an extraordinary leader using this process, find out
more about The
Leadership Challenge® Workshop , which is ILA's premier
leadership development program.
