Day Five: Living and Leading With Integrity
May 2nd, 2014
Learning Goal for the Day: Recognize the value of integrity in successful, effective leadership.
The big activity for the values day is the t-shirt activity. Each participant is given a paper t-shirt and then asked to decorate the t-shirt displaying their own core values. The purpose of the activity is to show participants that just as we wear a tshirt, we should be constantly "wearing" and living our values in everything that we do. The t-shirts are then hung on a clothesline around the room to display to others in the learning community what each of the participants individually values.
The day concludes with a meaningful discussion on values and their importance in leadership as a learning community. From there, they spend the rest of the night in their individual family clusters for their last family cluster meeting time. On night five, staff put on a celebration bonfire with smores, to celebrate the students last night at the LeaderShape Institute and allow the students to further bond with each other as a group and celebrate the friendships made.
