LeaderShape® is a community of individuals working to create a world that does not exist right now except in moments. 

The world we want to experience is where everyone leads with integrity and embraces living in possibility. Where anything is possible. Where everyone sees their own gifts and finds ways to use them for the greater good. We want to see our best selves.

The LeaderShape® Institute at Texas State

The LeaderShape® Institute is six days of dialogue and self-discovery that takes place in a supportive learning community and challenges participants to lead with integrity while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest values. Participants explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be.

Dynamic, challenging, and exciting, the week is intended to produce a breakthrough in the leadership capacity of participants—benefiting them individually, as well as their respective communities and the organizations they will go on to lead and serve in the future.

Day 7: ShapeTxSt consists of a variety of events specifically for graduates of The LeaderShape® Institute that will allow them to stay connected with their Family Cluster, make new connections with others who share similar passions, and gain access to resources that will help the students put their vision into action.

Day 7: ShapeTxSt Activities Include:

  • Wear LeaderShape shirt on the first Friday of each month
  • LeaderShape socials each semester
  • Family cluster brown bag lunches
  • Staying connected via social media using #txstDay7
