LeaderShape® The Institute

"We make our world significant by the courage of our questions and by the depth of our anwsers."Carl Sagan

What is LeaderShape® The Institute?

Six days of dialogue and self-discovery in a supportive learning community. 

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.

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. 

We are not talking about how to run a better meeting, how to get elected to an office, or how to conduct a bake sale. We are talking about changing the world. We are talking about getting out of your comfort zone and becoming the tipping point that changes everything.

Any meaningful accomplishment, idea, business, or cause began with one person saying, “I can do this better.” Unfortunately, many people are happy with the way things are and that is why nothing changes. We are talking about leading — don't care about your title. We care about the results. That is what we are…we are LeaderShape.

We want to be a part of creating a just, caring, thriving world. Participants of our programs and members of our community know what that world is like because they have tasted it — even if only for a day. And they want more. Until we have that world, there is LeaderShape and we have work to do.

Appalachian State is proud to partner with the University of  North Carolina Wilmington  to present this opportunity to our students.
