What is LeaderShape?

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.


What Will We Learn?

  • Day 1: Building Community
  • Day 2: The Value of One, The Power of All
  • Day 3: Challenging What Is, Looking to What Could Be

  • Day 5: Living and Leading with Integrity
  • Day 6: Staying in Action

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.

"Being at Leadershape was undoubtedly an experience of a lifetime. Every moment I was pushed to think deeper than surface level and pushed to be my own critic and cheerleader. I built everlasting relationships and connections, together we remind one another that everyday is day 7! Happy to say that I am a graduate of the institute!"
