What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"The Student Leadership Practices Inventory is the best tool I have used to help students assess their leadership effectiveness because it translates the concept of leadership into actions and relationships. By defining and measuring specific leadership behaviors, the Student LPI allows students to see how they are doing as leaders and to determine how they can improve."
—Cathy Early, director of leadership education, National Interfraternity Conference

The Student Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI), The Facilitator's Guide

By James M. Kouzes

John Wiley & Sons

ISBN: 0-7879-8029-3

Chapter One


Leadership is everyone's business. Our research has shown that leadership is an observable, learnable set of practices. It is not something mystical and ethereal that cannot be understood by ordinary people. We believe that, given the opportunity for feedback and practice, those with the desire and persistence to lead can substantially improve their abilities to do so.

Many young people taking a leadership course for the first time already have more leadership experience than they realize. For example, they may have trained and supervised peers in an employment setting or volunteer activity, started a club, or captained a sports team. A leadership development survey is not only a means of learning leadership skills but also a way of discovering or examining the leadership experiences students may have had already.

The purpose of this Facilitator's Guide is to assist you in designing and conducting a leadership program based on the Student Leadership Practices Inventory (Student LPI). Using this manual in conjunction with the Student LPI, you will be able to accomplish the following:

Present a valid, understandable, and practical model of leadership for students.

Provide reliable and useful feedback to students on their current use of a specific set of leadership behaviors.

Conduct a workshop (from one hour to a half-day or full day) on leadership.

Integrate the Student LPI into other leadership development programs.

The Leadership Practices Inventory was created as part of an extensive and continuing research project into the everyday actions and behaviors of exemplary leaders-at all levels, across a variety of organizational settings. Our book, The Leadership Challenge, provides a comprehensive explanation of the empirical and conceptual basis for the practices and behaviors that are the foundation of this instrument. The book offers numerous suggestions for improving skills in these practices and behaviors. Consequently, we strongly recommend that all facilitators read this book prior to conducting a workshop or program in which the Student LPI will be used. Students also benefit from reading the book, often as a follow-up to their workshop or classroom participation. Also available for students is The Five Practices of Exemplary Student Leadership article.

We wish you every success in your efforts to liberate the leader within each student.
