2018 UC Davis Leadership Challenge

The UC Davis Leadership Challenge is based on the work of Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner and their research of 25,000 leaders in public and private sectors. This research identifies the five best practices by leaders who get extraordinary things done in organizations. Individuals who increase the frequency of these five leadership practices have been proven to have higher credibility and higher performing teams. Leadership is learnable and individuals who experience The Leadership Challenge increase their leadership effectiveness.
