Student Leadership Practices Inventory, The Facilitator's Workbook

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.
