Living in a State of Possibility.

The 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.

Dynamic, challenging, and exciting, the week is intended to produce a breakthrough in the leadership capacity of participants—benefiting them individually, as well as their respective communities and the organizations they will go on to lead and serve in the future.

The Institute™ now serves people representing a wide variety of organizations throughout the United States and internationally. Since 1986, more than 60,000 participants from colleges, universities and corporations from across the country have attended the Institute™
