The LeaderShape Institute is an intensive, energizing, six-day educational experience designed to equip young adults to become extraordinary leaders. Each session of The University of Utah LeaderShape Institute is comprised of approximately 60 students from diverse ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds. The Institute's curriculum is presented by a group of facilitators who are all highly respected in their own professions and serve as excellent role models for the students.
Much of the week's work is done in small groups called "family clusters," which create a safe, supportive learning environment that allows participants to work together, form close friendships, and benefit from new perspectives. Each student in the cluster works to define his/her personal vision — an extraordinary commitment to changing or contributing to the world in a positive way.
Based on that vision, participants then develop a blueprint for the action that they will undertake when they return home — with the objective of effecting meaningful, measurable change in their organization. With the guidance of LeaderShape facilitators, participants complete a blueprint that identifies the goals, relationships, and action steps that are essential to the project’s success.
Dynamic, challenging, and exciting, the week is intended to produce a breakthrough in the leadership capacity of participants — benefiting the students themselves, their respective organizations, and the institutions that they will go on to lead and serve in the future.
The application for LeaderShape 2013 is now closed.
