The LeaderShape® Institute challenges participants to lead with integrity while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest values. Participants explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be.

Learning Outcomes

Leadership involves living in a state of possibility, making a commitment to a vision, developing relationships to move the vision into action, and sustaining a high level of integrity. The LeaderShape Institute aims to produce a breakthrough in the leadership capacity of participants and facilitators. 


Our curriculum, refined by almost two decades of repetition and reviewed by hundreds of facilitators, is split into different themes for each of the six days of a session. The themes are listed below:

  • Day 1 - Building Community
  • Day 2 - The Value of One The Power of All
  • Day 3 - Challenging What Is and Looking To What Could Be
  • Day 4 - Bringing Vision to Reality
  • Day 5 - Living and Leading With Integrity
  • Day 6 - Staying in Action
