What We're Saying

December 22, 2008

Last week, a very large Department of Corrections facility on the West coast purchased bulk copies of the book The Offsite by Robert Thompson. This parable addresses the leadership challenge, and what a challenge this must be at such an organization. However, sharing a vision, encouraging that in others, and enabling them to accomplish goals, is something we all share. READ FULL DESCRIPTION

Full Description

Drawing on the leadership theories in the management classic The Leadership Challenge, Robert Thompson effortlessly incorporates these ideas into a fable of leadership and growth. Based on a company's three-day offsite meeting, we follow this tale of transition through the eyes of two former rival pharmaceutical companies creating a joint sales strategy. The characters ultimately learn how to adopt the five practises that form the Leadership Challenge
  • Model the Way
  • Inspire a Shared Vision
  • Challenge the Process
  • Enable Others to Act
  • Encourage the Heart.

The book also explores the dynamics of a company off-site and addresses the fears and concerns participants may have especially around 360 degree feedback, the key component of the Leadership Challenge model and workshops.

For anyone preparing to attend a leadership training off-site, human resource professionals or trainers planning an offsite, leadership developers, program planners, or for professionals looking to hone their leadership skills, this book will be an invaluable resource and a succinct introduction to The Leadership Challenge.
