This interactive online course introduces the five practices of exemplary leadership – model the way, inspire a shared vision, challenge the process, enable others to act, and encourage the heart. It sets the stage for the remaining courses in the series and uses actual case examples from real people who have achieved remarkable success. In the second practice "Model the Way" examines how finding your voice and serving as a role model for your constituents is critical to becoming an authentic leader. If you can’t find your voice, you’ll end up with a vocabulary that belongs to someone else, mouthing words that were written by some speechwriter, or mimicking the language of some other leader who’s nothing like you. And people most admire those who best articulate the principles they believe in. You can begin to achieve these aims by exploring the first of the five practices of exemplary leadership: “Model the Way.”
