What Will You Do?

In short - a lot!  The experience is almost indescribable but in general it centers around four themes:  Community, Inclusivity, Integrity, and Vision.  Each day is jam packed with large group activities, small group activities, and reflection time. After all, it takes a lot of things to change oneself and create the world we want to live in.

Each day is focused on a theme as described below:

  • 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 4 - Bringing Vision to Reality
  • Day 5 - Living and Leading With Integrity
  • Day 6 - Staying in Action

What Others Have to Say

“I have had one of the most inspirational, emotional, and educational weeks of my life with new friendships, connections, and a new family.  I have never felt so happy and excited for my future.  I’ve learned so much about myself, the potential that I have within, and just what I need to do to be successful!  I don’t know how to thank the people who gave me this opportunity to come here or how to thank the people who coached us, inspired us, and lead us to find our true potential.  I’m leaving this place and all the friends I have made with the sadness it is over, but so happy with all the things I have gained.  Thank you LeaderShape – you have changed my life!”
