Think about the most powerful lessons you’ve learned throughout your life. Most likely, you learned them not from a lecture, text, or video. You learned them through personal experience. That idea is the foundation of Shafer Leadership Academy’s programming.
We don’t lecture you on the principles of effective leadership.
We facilitate powerful exercises and enlightening interactions with others so you can discover what effective leadership is for yourself. The result? You’re provided with a unique understanding of how YOU can personally lead others and be a catalyst for change in the communities and organizations you represent.
Our selection of community programs are open to the public. They are affordably priced, with scholarships and discounts available.
