The Leadership Practices Inventory® is a one-day workshop led by DTP-Leadership, a Houston-based consulting firm that works with companies across many sectors. The workshop introduces the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®.
The Five Practices are based on The Leadership Challenge® developed by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner in the 1980s that teach leadership principles and skills. The Leadership Practices Inventory® introduces its participants to the Five Practices: Model the Way, Inspire a shared vision, Challenge the process, Enable Others To Act, and Encourage The Heart. It also includes a comprehensive, online assessment instrument.
The Leadership Practices Inventory® is a prerequisite to The Leadership Challenge® workshop, held over two days. This workshop is for those leaders who want to accomplish even more. It too focuses on the Five Practices introduced in the one-day workshop, and the results from the online assessment become the basis for reviewing and developing actions that strengthen leadership behaviors. Research shows that people whose leaders demonstrate the Five Practices are much more satisfied with their leader’s actions.
