For the most part, the magic behind the LeaderShape Institute curriculum is intentionally left vague. Our aim is to invite participants to enter the week with as few preconceived notions as possible and remain present with the people around them. Though, we can let you in on the six big picture themes that drive the Institute:
The Value Of One, The Power Of All
Challenging What Is, Looking To What Could Be
Bringing Vision to Reality
Living and Leading with Integrity
Staying In Action
More than 70,000 people nationwide have participated in the Institute, including:
Larry Page – Co-Founder, Google
Dr. Anjali Forber-Pratt – Paralympic Medalist
Brian Griese – President, Judi’s House & former NFL quarterback
Jessica Ekstrom – Founder, Headbands of Hope
Reshma Saujani – Founder and CEO, Girls Who Code
Jonathan Naber – Founder and Field Director, Bump Non-profit Design Studios
Salman Khan – Founder, Khan Academy
This isn’t just for the people who hold titles in your organizations and communities – it’s for anyone who’s willing to take the time to become the best versions of themselves.
All returning Penn State students are invited to apply for this exciting opportunity. Applications for LeaderShape are now available online until March 1. Applicants will be notified of their participation in the LeaderShape Institute shortly after Spring Break!
