Benefits of Membership
The LeaderShape Institute is an intensive, energizing, six-day educational experience designed to equip young adults to become extraordinary leaders. Each session of The LeaderShape Institute is comprised of approximately 60 from diverse ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds. The Institute’s curriculum is presented by a group of facilitators who are all highly respected in their own professions and serve as excellent role models for the students. Much of the week’s work is done in small groups we call Family Clusters, which create a safe, supportive learning environment. Participants work together, form close friendships, and benefit from new perspectives. Each person in the Family Cluster works to define a personal vision — an extraordinary commitment to changing or contributing to the world in a positive way. Based on that vision, participants then develop a blueprint for the action they will undertake when they return home — with the objective of effecting meaningful, measurable change in their organization or community during the next 9-12 months. With the guidance of LeaderShape facilitators, participants complete a blueprint that identifies the goals, relationships, and action steps that are essential to the project’s success. The LeaderShape institute helps participants explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be. We believe integrity is at the heart of leadership. As a result, the Institute creates space to identify core values and explore how individual choices have an impact on congruence and how we are perceived as leaders.
