the five practices of exemplary leadership


I had the chance to meet Debbie on two occasions while attending both The Leadership Challenge® workshop and the The Leadership Challenge® Facilitator training both presented by her. I consider myself quite lucky that I ended up with her and ˜business en motion" because of the high level of professionalism exhibited before, during and after the learning experiences. My journey through The Leadership Challenge® ran smoothly and with ease; Debbie's high sense of loyalty and passion towards the program are highly contagious which created in me and my colleagues a sense of responsibility and commitment for both content and process while preserving our identity throughout. The support system she creates around us is so helpful making us feel safe as we progress through initial implementation, trying to find our own path and voice with The Leadership Challenge®.
