What is The LeaderShape Institute?
The LeaderShape Institute

The LeaderShape Institute is six intense days of dialogue and interactive self-discovery in a supportive Learning Community.

The LeaderShape Institute challenges participants to lead with integrity while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest values. Participants explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be.

Dynamic, challenging, and exciting, the week is intended to produce a breakthrough in the leadership capacity of participants — benefiting them individually, as well as their respective communities and the organizations they will go on to lead and serve in the future.

The LeaderShape Institute is a 6-day, living-learning experience. It is an institute, not a conference, which means that all participants experience the same programs, discussions, and activities at the same pace. The LeaderShape Institute is the flagship program of LeaderShape, Inc. and is widely recognized as the premier leadership program for young adults in the nation.

The LeaderShape Institute is an exhilarating and exhausting experience. It is an Institute, and not a conference, meaning every participant and facilitator goes through all of the same sessions and programs together. There are early mornings (8:30 a.m.) as well as late nights (11 p.m.) of games and bonding with fellow participants. Specifics of the program include a team challenge course (half-day, low-ropes team-building experience), an evening with a Guest Leader Forum in which participants are exposed to "real world" role models, quality facilitators from a variety of backgrounds, and interactive small group meetings.
