In-Person Program Sessions

Shafer Leadership sessions are led by facilitators who guide participants to learn in community together around a leadership development topic. Facilitation is different than lecturing, webinar, or presentation style format.

Facilitation is the act of engaging participants in creating, discovering, and applying learning insights. (ATD)

In-Person Workshop

This workshop is a 3 hour immersive and engaging format that asks for active participation from all attendees. Participants will have the opportunity to take a brief break during the 3 hour session. Workshop attendance will usually be anywhere from 15 to 40 people with 40 being the maximum. Participants will be provided any materials they need for the session but we do encourage individuals to bring their own tools for taking notes.

Lunch & Learn

Lunch will be provided by Harmony Café in 2022 on most occasions. If you have a food allergy, please email Tisha Gierhart.  Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten-Free options will be available at each lunch and all food will be served buffet style. Lunch and learns start at 11:30 a.m., we encourage participants to arrive at 11.15 a.m. so they are able to start eating lunch before the session starts.

Location and Room Set-up Information: All in-person sessions will be held at the Innovation Connector, unless stated otherwise due to capacity or other changes that may arise. Plentiful parking is available in front of the building.
