LeaderShape believes that leadership involves living in the state of possibility, making a commitment to a vision, developing relationships to move the vision into action, and sustaining a high level of integrity. We believe that effective leadership takes place in the context of a community and results in a more equitable society.
It is this definition that serves as the foundation of the Institute. The Institute is an immersion experience that allows participants to work collectively to live in this world of possibility as they explore their values, who they are, and who they want to be.
While together, they will develop a vision that is grounded in their deepest values.
In 2019, we will host three national sessions as follows:
- May 12-17, 2019: National session of the Institute in Boston, MA
- July 21-26, 2019: National session of the Institute in Champaign, IL
- July 28-August 2, 2019: National session of the Institute in Champaign, IL
In 2019, we are also offering a 4-day session of the Institute. We have conducted pilot sessions of this format of the Institute with our campus partners and are now hosting it as a national session. The date for that session is:
- May 20-23, 2019: 4-day national session of the Institute in Champaign, IL
We recognize that for many participants, finding six days away is not possible and we don’t want time to be a reason someone doesn’t attend the Institute. The 4-day Institute is formatted to provide the Institute experience in a shorter timeframe to help engage more participants. The curriculum for the 4-day and 6-day Institute are the same; the difference being the pace of the days.
