The Student Leadership Challenge

The Student Leadership Challenge

In today’s world there are countless opportunities to make a difference. More than ever there is a need for people of all ages, from all backgrounds, with all types of life experience to seize those opportunities that lead to greatness. More than ever there is a need for leaders to inspire us to dream, to participate, and to persevere.

Kouzes-Posner-2011The Student Leadership Challenge offers everyone the chance to do just that—to take the initiative and make a difference. The Student Leadership Challenge is about how student leaders mobilize others to want to get extraordinary things done. It’s about the practices leaders use to transform values into actions, visions into realities, obstacles into innovations, individuality into collaboration, and risks into rewards. It’s about a climate in which people turn challenging opportunities into remarkable successes. It was developed by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner about 30 years ago using thorough research methods and thousands of interviews. Through ongoing research that continues even today, the theory and model of leadership still proves to be one of the best ways to help students understand and improve their own leadership behaviors.
