Cluster Facilitators work directly with a small group of 10-12 participants (a Family Cluster) during The LeaderShape® Institute to encourage authentic dialogue and enhance learning. For each LeaderShape Institute, six faculty or staff from Lehigh are selected for this role.
Specific roles include:
Modeling leadership behavior and acting with integrity
Clarifying, summarizing, and sharing ideas
Guiding group discussions
Facilitating selected segments of the curriculum
Establishing a climate conducive to learning
Challenging assumptions and encouraging reflection and feedback
Maintaining an energy level that matches the pace of the LeaderShape® Institute
Because Cluster Facilitators have considerable interaction with the participants, they are very valuable members of the Institute. The Cluster Facilitator supports participants as they develop their Breakthrough Blueprints and encourages positive interpersonal and group development in a safe and trusting environment. Cluster Facilitators are also encouraged to maintain contact with members of their Family Cluster following their session through the implementation of the Day 7 program. This contact helps participants “stay in action” on their visions after the six-day Institute and will help sustain their commitment to integrity after the LeaderShape® Institute.
For staff, the LeaderShape at Lehigh 2018 Institute will be held Sunday, January 14th, 2018 - Saturday, January 20th, 2018 at Camp Ladore in Waymart, PA (http://ladore.org/). Please note, these dates are the week before classes begin over winter break so please plan accordingly.
