“Emergence was an amazing experience. I can’t say how grateful I am to have been a part of Emergence, and to have met the people I met. I learned a lot about myself, my community, and what I can do to better make a difference. I’m not one who’s needed encouragement to be involved, but this course rejuvenated and reeducated me and how to best use my talents. Awesome, awesome experience.”
“Ingenuity presented more useful information than any workshop I have attended. I can apply everything presented to not only my work environment, but to everyday life.”
“I have really enjoyed every Shafer Leadership Academy workshop I have attended. Propel in particular was great because it gave you the applicable tools to achieve your goals, tools that can be easily used in real- world situations.”
“In Emergence, I learned more about myself than I would have ever thought and now I challenge myself to focus on what I’m passionate about and not be so consumed with “busy work” that takes up the bulk of my time. Thank you for taking the time to help us learn more about ourselves!”
