When the world changed in mid-March, so did Shafer Leadership Academy. Two weeks after our board of directors made the necessary decision to halt in person classes, we launched our first virtual series.
Since March 26th, Shafer Leadership Academy has conducted:
- 6 virtual community programs with 478 participants
- from 63 different organizations while maintaining a 97% satisfaction rating.
- Organizations with the highest number of attendees were: Ball State University, Ivy Tech, Ontario Systems, Muncie Power Products and Open Door Health Services.
Here are a few notes from attendees:
“I enjoyed being able to interact with the activities and seeing everyone’s different responses. It was very informative and gave me good ideas that will help me through this hard time”.
“I appreciate the friendly presentation style of the facilitator. She was engaging and kept me interested in the material”.
“We are all in this together. I’m excited that we are learning from great leaders here in our very own community. Thank you Shafer Leadership Academy”
These virtual programs are free for SLA members and for a limited time this offer is being extended to the entire community at no cost.
In addition to our community programs, Shafer Leadership Academy has continued to offer custom programming to organizations virtually. For years Shafer Leadership Academy has provided tailored programs for organizations across East Central Indiana. We made the transition this spring to virtual custom programming.
Here is what our virtual custom programming clients have to say:
“I enjoyed being able to interact with the activities and seeing everyone’s different responses. It was very informative and gave me good ideas that will help me through this hard time. Even virtually, Shafer Leadership Academy was able to engage with our students. Through these challenging times, it was great to be able to still provide leadership development to our students.”
– Abby Haworth, Associate Director of Student Life, Ball State University
“Shafer Leadership Academy has been instrumental in helping us provide programming that is relevant, engaging, and student focused. Our virtual Student Leadership Series has been one of our best attended programs throughout this transition and students have enjoyed each session and topic. Mitch and his team do a fabulous job of engaging students and reaching them at their level to keep them interested and wanting more. I am impressed but not surprised as SLA has been a valued partner to help provide quality professional development opportunities to our students in the past. Thank you for your desire to serve our students and the Muncie community during this unprecedented time.”
– Terri Sanders, Student Life Coordinator, Ivy Tech
