Here at LeaderShape, we want to experience a world where everyone leads with integrity and lives in possibility. Where we work in community with one another. Where everyone sees their own gifts and finds ways to use them for the greater good.
We want to intentionally create spaces for others to be included and contribute in this world and then by doing so, lead others to do the same – “to lead, live and look ahead”.
This blog series is a place to hear updates from our Community Engagement team at the beginning of each month. The updates will include #Day7, #LeaderShapeChat, and any other upcoming campaigns and projects you can participate in with us.
This month, #Day7 will be focusing on creativity. Many believe that only certain people can be creative, but LeaderShape believes that every individual is capable of being creative in their own ways. We will debunk this “only certain people can be creative” theory and share ways to find and embrace different kinds of creativity. Throughout the entire day (Saturday, October 7th), we will have quizzes, articles, videos, and other fun ways to #FindYourCreativity on our Twitter feed – be sure to follow along.
Join us for this month’s LeaderShape Webinar Series on Monday, October 16th at 12 p.m. CST. We will be welcoming Tricia Homer and Jackie Pearce Garrett as they present A Space for Reflection: Recharge your Leadership Through Nourishment/Self-Care. To register and attend, visit bigmarker.com/leadershape.
Each month, we host a Twitter chat that exemplifies our belief of “to lead, live”. On Wednesday, October 25th, we encourage you to join us on Twitter for our #LeaderShapeChat about activating your strengths. “With the new day comes new strengths and new thoughts” – Eleanor Roosevelt.
In September, we talked about how self care plays a critical part in leadership and our lives. Catch up on the recap here.
In September, we continued to strengthen our engagement with LeaderShapers through our social media efforts by starting a “Where Are They Now” campaign. We highlight members of our Institute, Catalyst, and Resilience programs by sharing their story, advice, or favorite quote.
If you would like to be involved, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will find a way to share your story!
It’s National Book Month! To celebrate, we want to send you a LeaderShape gift bag with one of our favorite books! Throughout the years, we have been inspired by many stories, learned some lessons, sparked creative ideas, and even had a few “how fascinating” reflections. All of this happened by simply turning a page. Throughout the rest of the month, we invite you to post on Instagram a picture of you and your favorite book with the hashtag #toleadread.
