The LeaderShape Institute
WHAT IS THE LEADERSHAPE INSTITUTE?
The LeaderShape Institute is a six-day experience that offers you a unique opportunity to develop a healthy disregard for the impossible. We are talking about getting out of your comfort zone and becoming the tipping point that changes everything. It can help you shape the way you look at the world and the way you influence positive change in it. The LeaderShape Institute is about building leaders interested in creating a just, caring and thriving world.
