12 Commitments of Leadership

Leadership is a large topic.  It is essential to those looking to influence positive change.  It is easy to see both effective and ineffective examples of leadership in action.  A great question to ask is "What makes the difference?" We think the difference comes down to understanding the practices and commitments of effective leadership. We have developed 6 practices and 12 commitments of Inspired Leadership based on the work of Kouzes and Posner.  We find that shining a light on these helps in being able to develop and implement effective leadership on a day to day basis.  You can see them below and then download your very own poster copyfor free.  We suggest you display the practices and commitments poster where you will see it each day. We'd love to hear your feedback.  Does the Inspired Leadership poster demystify leadership for you?  Email us here.
