At the LeaderShape Institute, you’ll spend six days creating a comprehensive and powerful vision for the future that defines a bold change for your community, group, cause, or organization. As you work through this vision, you’ll have an opportunity to engage in reflection, planning, one-on-one interactions, small group feedback, and large group learning. The LeaderShape Institute environment resembles a laboratory more than a formal classroom. You’re encouraged to practice new skills, give and receive feedback from peers and faculty, and risk new behaviors in a safe, supportive atmosphere. You’ll leave with a healthy disregard for the impossible and the ability to produce extraordinary results within your community!
The University Honors Program is pleased to present this amazing opportunity for up to 60 Honors students December 14-19, 2013, at Higher Ground Conference and Retreat Center in West Harrison, IN. Students who participate in the LeaderShape Institute will fulfill one honors experience.
