DC Area OD Practitioners CoP
Topic: The Five (Simple) Practices of Exemplary Leadership

Facilitators:  Cathy Raines and Jing Burgi-Tian

The Leadership Challenge by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner is 25 years old. The book has sold millions of copies, generated hundreds of research projects, and has been translated into many languages.

In this session, we'll explore the five practices that the book and research describes:

- Model the Way
- Inspire a Shared Vision
- Challenge the Process
- Enable Others to Act
- Encourage the Heart

The model considers leaders to be anyone rather than leadership as a position, though it recognizes the responsibilities that positional leaders hold. It includes a customized 360 called The Leadership Practices Inventory.

The session will be designed for everyone to participate. For those with experience with the model, please plan to add your experience and wisdom.

Cathy Raines has worked in organizational and individual development for more than 20 years. Most of her work has been as an internal staff person and leader. She worked at National Public Radio for many years as well as the Associated Press, Radio Free Europe in Prague, and the US Fund for UNICEF. She currently works at the US Department of State teaching leadership and management, and providing coaching. Cathy has recently been certified as a facilitator of The Leadership Challenge.
