LeadershapeLeadership involves living in a state of possibility, making a commitment to a vision, developing relationships to move the vision into action, and sustaining a high level of integrity. Effective leadership takes place in the context of a supportive community and results in positive change.

The LeaderShape® Institute is an interactive, energizing and unique leadership experience for you!

LeaderShape® is a national organization that hosts numerous six-day conferences committed to "producing a breakthrough in the leadership capacity of college student participants." The CSU LeaderShape® Institute takes place at the Pingree Park CSU campus (all transportation, food, & lodging provided) after the last week of classes in the spring semester. This highly active and hands-on institute provides tools for individuals to:

  • Act consistently with core ethical and personal values and convictions
  • Develop and enrich relationships
  • Respect the dignity and contributions of all people
  • Believe in a healthy disregard for the impossible
  • Produce extraordinary results


“I knew the things I was interested in but did not understand where my passion stemmed from until my Family Cluster facilitator challenged my vision. LeaderShape helped me realize that I will forever be changing and developing my strengths.”

 “I feel I have not stopped learning since Day 1. I cannot put into words what The LeaderShape® Institute has taught me.”

“I learned how to have a healthy disregard for the impossible. I learned both what I can do on my own and what a community can help me accomplish."
 “I learned that when faced with a difficult choice, think of the person you want to be and what they would do.”
