Event Description:


An Introduction to the Five Practices
of Exemplary Leadership    

Presented by:

Helping businesses grow from the inside out


Are your best producers promoted into management without a roadmap?

Are they better at managing tasks than leading people?

Do you wish they had the confidence and skills to be great leaders?

If you and your organization believe in the research that shows how leadership development boosts confidence, engagement, results and profits, there is an answer: The Center for Leadership. 

The Center is a program of the Southwest Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce. The mission is to offer leadership growth opportunities that are both local and affordable to business, nonprofit, government and education organizations.

We are pleased to launch the fifth Southwest Gwinnett Chamber Leadership Institute offering, beginning Tuesday, September 18, 2018, bringing local leaders together to develop mindsets and skill sets that equip them to serve the real needs of their families,  businesses, and community.

Over more than twenty-five years, The Leadership Challenge has been known as a research-driven, evidence-based leadership development model. It is based on the core principle that leadership is a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors. 

The workshop is an intensive seven-week series of leadership development interactive sessions based upon research by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, co-authors of the award-winning and best-selling book, The Leadership Challenge. This book was selected as one of the Top 10 books on leadership of all time (according to The 100 Best Business Books of All Time). The book has sold over 1.8 Million copies in more than twenty languages.

Led by Leadership Coach and Strategist Betsy Pickren, here are the topics we will study in the Leadership Challenge Workshop:

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