Jackalyn Rainosek has been polishing her leadership skills throughout the course of her 42 years as an entrepreneur. Her newly named company, DTP-Leadership Group, offers groups, organizations and individuals programs in leadership that transform skills and elevate success. One of the key programs offered by Rainosek is The Leadership Challenge, where participants learn to hone their potential as exceptional leaders.
The Leadership Challenge was developed by James Kouzes and Barry Posner and is presented in their bestselling book, The Leadership Challenge. The premise of The Leadership Challenge is that leaders who achieve peak performance levels regularly engage in five common practices that Kouzes and Posner named The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®.
The duo based their findings on research that included hundreds of interviews and the study of survey questionnaires and case studies. Today, more than thirty years later, over 1.3 million surveys have been analyzed and over 500 research projects have been focused on the Five Practices and their proven success.
DTP-Leadership Group presents the five practices in their “Five Practices of High Impact Leadership” course, where they share the techniques that bring about leadership qualities in all who are focused on collaborative relationships that motivate and inspire others. The course teaches participants to clearly communicate fundamental beliefs and values, to build a foundation for collaboration and trust, and to help others strengthen their ability to achieve.
Jackalyn Rainosek has taught the Leadership Challenge to a wide array of individuals, executives, managers, government administrators and entrepreneurs.
