This unique leadership development program is for the young adult who aspires to be an exemplary leader. From the college classroom to the local youth club, the Student Leadership Practices Inventory has helped thousands of young people assess their leadership potential and improve their skills. Drawing from years of impeccable research and real-world experience, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner have developed four practical resources that can be used alone or in a workshop setting: the Self, the Observer, the Student Workbook, and the Facilitator's Guide.
Both the Self and Observer are questionnaires for the student leader and the person who has observed the student in action. Each survey features thirty statements based on five important leadership practices: Challenging the Process, Inspiring a Shared Vision, Enabling Others to Act, Modeling the Way, and Encouraging the Heart. To score their results, participants will find in the Student Workbook grids for recording scores, charts for interpreting scores, and worksheets for summarizing and planning action steps.
For those who need guidance in designing and conducting a student leadership program, there is the Facilitator's Guide. In addition to detailed instructions and examples, workshop leaders will find masters for overhead transparencies and handouts, checklists for meeting the leadership challenge, normative data on different types of student leaders, and instructions for obtaining computerized scoring software.

Make Leadership Learnable and Teachable--For Students and Young People
"The Student LPI was simple to use, to score, to understand--it made sense and gave me a handle for figuring out what leadership is all about."
"Made me realize that I am leader--and helped me figure out how to be a better one at that."
"I really liked that it was focused on students, rather than business people and executives. I could relate to what it was asking and telling me to do."
"I learned that leadership isn't about telling people what to do, but rather coming together to achieve a common goal.
"These are just a few of the things students have to say about their experiences with the Student Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI)--a new version of Kouzes and Posner's exceptional tool for developing extraordinary leaders--now tailored to the specific needs of students and young people!The four-instrument package assesses leadership skills and potential in five key areas, based on the five essential practices:- Challenging the Process- Inspiring a Shared Vision- Enabling Others to Act- Modeling the Way- Encouraging the HeartThe Facilitator's Guide is rich in examples and strategies for building leadership abilities suited to today's diverse organizational environments.
