LeaderShape® is a not-for-profit organization that partners with colleges, universities, and other like-minded organizations to provide transformative learning experiences for people who desire to make change in the world.

As an organization, all our work is driven by our mission to:

Transform the world by increasing the number of people who lead with integrityTM and a healthy disregard for the impossible.

We believe that when people lead their communities, their organizations and their families in this way, the world we live in will be a more just, caring, and thriving place.

The way we do this work is by offering leadership learning experiences for people to explore their values, what they care about, and how they can contribute to change in the world.

All our programs, (CatalystTM, the InstituteTM, and ResilienceTM) are based on our definition of leadership.

We believe that leadership involves living in a state of possibility, making a commitment to a vision, developing relationships to move that vision into action, and sustaining a high level of integrity. Effective leadership takes place in the context of a community and results in a more equitable society.

As an organization we have been engaged in this work since 1986. We will continue to offer transformative experiences until we live in a world that is more just, caring, and thriving.
