The LeaderShape® Institute™ is a nationally-recognized leadership development retreat. The lllinois Leadership® Center coordinates a special session each year for Illinois undergraduate students, which takes place over winter break at the Allerton Park and Retreat Center in Monticello, IL.
This retreat provides participants the opportunity for self-discovery, self-reflection and feedback in a community of approximately 60 peers. Not a typical leadership retreat, the Institute is grounded in helping individuals identify the values they hold that lead to making a difference in the communities around them. Through self-assessment, intensive small group discussions, team building challenges, and more, participants will develop a vision for something they care about.
By leading with passion, integrity, and a healthy disregard for the impossible, participants explore who they are and the impact that they want to have on communities working towards a more caring, just and equitable society.
