Irvine, United States - July 23, 2021 /PressCable/

ProAction Consulting today reflected on the publication of The Leadership Challenge® some 35 Years ago by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner. The book is considered to be in the top five of all leadership books ever written. Now in it’s 6th edition, it is based on 30 years of research by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, who asked the question: what are the practices and behaviors people look for in the leaders they would willingly want to follow? They found across culture, gender, ethnicity, generations and industry, there are five practices of exemplary leaders: Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.

Jim Vasconcellos, Founder – Sr Consultant at ProAction Consulting, says: “That strong foundation of research lead us to offer The Leadership Challenge® Workshop. Anyone familiar with the Management Consulting & Training market will probably have noticed how competitors seems to develop their programs from their own frame of reference and experience, stale perceptions & definitions of what it means to lead, and old research or books. We felt this was a problem because it perpetuates ideas which ongoing research has repeatedly debunked, such as “leaders are good and managers are bad,” or “charisma is a requirement for good leadership.”

So as a welcome breath of fresh air, The Leadership Challenge® Workshop instead delivers data-driven insights and experiential learnings which inspire action. It delivers personalized awareness to instill confidence in anyone who takes on the challenge to grow as leaders. For more than 35 years, the architects of The Leadership Challenge® Workshop have conducted research and gathered information from more than 5,000 individual case studies. They have developed a verified and robust assessment tool to measure and track leadership skills. This tool has been used and verified in more than 100 countries, producing proven results regardless of language or culture, by over 5 million practitioners. Leadership is a phenomenon of community; the community of your organization, as well as that of The Leadership Challenge® trainers, students, and curators. Our community members contribute their own unique perspectives, lived experiences, and insights to the benefit of all. When we support each other, we succeed together.. ProAction Consulting chose to make this move because No other leadership development has the comprehensive suite of products proven by such a vast body of verified research..

Jim Vasconcellos also said “We want to give our customers options. With The Leadership Challenge® Workshop, they have a fresh new possibility. We chose to offer The Leadership Challenge® because we ant them to feel the profound belief and confidence that they each can learn to develop as leaders, and bring change to their companies. when using Trying something new is always a risk, but it’s a risk we believe is worth taking.”
