About The Leadershape Institute
About the Institute
The InstituteSM, formerly known as The LeaderShape Institute®, has been a program of LeaderShape® for 30 years. Originally developed by the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity as a means of improving campus leadership, the Institute now serves people representing a wide variety of organizations throughout the United States and internationally.
In 1992, the University of Michigan, College of Engineering invited LeaderShape® to bring the InstituteSM to its campus and run a session of the program exclusively for Michigan students. This project was very successful and created the opportunity for more organizations to operate “campus-based” sessions of the InstituteSM.
To date, more than 60,000 participants from colleges, universities, and corporations from across the country have attended the InstituteSM. In addition, more than 6,000 volunteer faculty have contributed their time and talents since the program began in 1986. LeaderShape® partners with institutions and organizations large and small, across the United States and throughout the world in order to create a just, caring, and thriving world where everyone leads with integrity™ and a healthy disregard for the impossible.
We are transitioning from hosting this program every year, to every other year. Check back for updates and applications about the 2019 Institute!
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
