"I have to say, as being a part of many of these in my career, this one kept my attention throughout, and made me look at myself and question how I am leading and making adjustments’ to that. I was most excited to watch those who are my direct reports, become eager to show me, (and their teams), just what they were learning, and how they were putting that into practice."

"The Leadership Challenge has been one of the most impactful investments we have made in our team’s leadership skills. People managers rave about the principles and how they have significantly changed the way they think about leadership. Whether participants have been leading people for months or decades, there is something for everyone to learn. We’ve also seen it show up in our employee engagement measures, which is also a proof point that this investment in our leaders extends to how we show up to the entire organization. Easily one of the best investments I’ve made in my career in strengthening my leadership team!"

"When I became CEO of my organization I recognized the need to develop leaders within my organization. I read many books and looked at many programs and the program that really appeared to align with my goals and my organization is the Leadership Challenge. The key difference of this program vs. other assessment/360 tools, is that it is behavior based which makes it easier for leaders to understand the feedback they are receiving. It therefore makes it easier to make changes because you are asking for behavioral change which everyone has the ability to do. The 5 practices can also be easily understood and they can also be applied successfully across various levels of leadership in an organization. I highly recommend this program to organizations that are seeking to build a culture of successful leadership."
“I am a lot less stressed and frustrated about things I can’t control and the guys on the line notice that. They are more productive with better attitudes because I have improved my attitude.”
