LeaderShape: South Florida Participant Application

LeaderShape is an advanced, ethics-based leadership development experience for young adults. More than 37,000 participants from over 500 different colleges, universities, corporations, and organizations across America have graduated from the program.

The purpose of The LeaderShape Institute is to produce a breakthrough in the leadership capabilities and potential of participants. Our commitment to you is that after attending The LeaderShape Institute, you will have:

• Increased your commitment to acting consistently with your core ethical values, personal values, and convictions.
• Enhanced your capability to develop and enrich relationships as well as strengthen your commitment to respecting the dignity and contributions of all people.
• Embraced the belief in a “healthy disregard for the impossible.”
• Developed the capability to produce extraordinary results.

The LeaderShape: South Florida Institute will be held August 7-12, 2016 on the FAU Jupiter Campus. All participants will stay at the retreat center for the entire 6-day retreat and actively engage and participate in all of the LeaderShape activities. LeaderShape participants will be part of a “Learning Community,” which will consist of 50-60 students from various Florida colleges and LeaderShape Institute facilitators who will meet together for discussions, activities, and sharing. In addition, participants will be part of a “Family Cluster,” which will be comprised of 8-12 students from the Learning Community as well as a “Cluster Facilitator” who will be a professional staff member from one of the Florida institutes and trained as a LeaderShape facilitator. This family cluster will serve as a support group for participants and the cluster facilitator will reinforce the ideas and skills being taught by the LeaderShape facilitators.

The Department of Campus Life - MMC is sponsoring motivated students who are committed to learning about leadership and promoting leadership development among FIU students to attend this year’s LeaderShape: South Florida Institute, which will be held August 7-12, 2016.
