For over 30 years, authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner have continuously gathered and analyzed data from the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) and Student Leadership Practices Inventory (Student LPI) survey questionnaires for ongoing study and to make refinements to the instrument. The database of responses is used to produce the normative information contained in the LPI and Student LPI feedback reports.
Learn more about the authors' original and subsequent research on The Leadership Challenge website. Examples of some of the studies include the Psychometric Properties of the Student LPI, Theory and Evidence Behind the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership, and New Norms for the Leadership Practices Inventory.
|On this website and in our promotional materials, you'll find that we often talk about the research that backs up The Student Leadership Challenge and The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership model. But what does that mean?
In this section you will find information directly related to the research conducted by the authors and other educators.
