Build Leadership Skills And Undertake The Journey To Success

Meridian Leadership Institute offers the Leadership Challenge® Workshop in November  

Neptune, NJ - Are you looking for ways to build your leadership skills and undertake the journey to success and significance?  Join the millions of leaders and organizations around the globe to assess and build your leadership skills and undertake the journey to success and significance.

The Meridian Leadership Institute is offering The Leadership Challenge® Workshop, a unique, intensive, and highly interactive learning experience that immerses participants in evidence based leadership practices.  The workshop is based on the best selling book “The Leadership Challenge”, the most trusted source on becoming a better leader by authors James Kouzes and Barry Posner.

The two day workshop intended for new leaders to senior executives will be held on Wednesday, November 13 and Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency in Princeton, New Jersey.

According to the CPP Global Human Capital Report, 72% of respondents are bracing for the impact of ill-equipped employees assuming higher-level leadership roles and lower employee morale due to the expected poor leadership, which makes leadership and the development of leadership skills even more critical.

The Leadership Challenge® Workshop has served as a catalyst for profound leadership transformations in organizations of all sizes and in all industries. Participants experience and apply The Five Practices leadership model through video cases, workbook exercises, group problem-solving tasks, lectures, and outdoor action learning.

“Quite often we hear workshop attendees describe how The Leadership Challenge is more than a training event,” said Sherri String, executive director, Meridian Leadership Institute. “In many cases they talk about how it changed their lives.”

As a result of The Leadership Challenge® Workshop, leaders will be able to:

•    Identify your leadership strengths and weaknesses.
•    Communicate your fundamental values and beliefs.
•    Set the example for others by aligning your actions with your shared values
•    Express your image of the future.
•    Inspire others to share a common vision.
•    Search for opportunities to take the risks needed for growth.
•    Strengthen the ability of others to excel.
•    Recognize the accomplishments of others.
