In addition to custom workshops, The Leadership Forge offers two proven branded workshops to empower leaders and drive organizational change.

The Leadership Challenge® Workshop


The Leadership Challenge Workshop is more than a training event. A practical and hands-on experience, this intensive workshop is designed to inspire, engage, and help your leaders develop the skills needed to meet whatever challenges lie ahead. Participants will enjoy group activities and individual exercises structured around seven curriculum components, including five modules focused specifically on The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®.

  • Communicate their fundamental values
  • Align those values with actions to set the example for others

With exercises designed to increase honesty and reduce defensive behaviors, The Human Element Workshop will help people eliminate distortions that can undermine relationships and motivation.

Upon completing The Leadership Challenge® Workshop, your organization may experience:
  • Increased engagement and productivity
  • Improved innovation and problem solving

Rise to the challenge.

Joe is a phenomenal coach and advisor to leaders because he is a leader. Many coaches, consultants, and advisors have no more than academic experience with leadership, and lack the experience to know what it really takes to lead. Not Joe. His training and achievements with the United States Air Force have grounded him in true leadership principles.
