Leadership Foundations

Leadership Foundations

The Foundations program is designed to serve cohorts of young adults (18-26 year olds) helping them gain leadership and values awareness to foster a path of personal growth and development. Currently working with Pacific Gateway Investment Network, LLB utilizes the Camp Fire USA facility in Long Beach to emulate a leadership retreat experience with adult and youth (college age) alumni serving as group facilitators.

The objectives of the program are to shape a supportive culture within each cohort while guiding each participant toward a mental readiness and optimism toward their future. Additionally, the program will focus on building a framework around six carefully selected principles of leadership, which will serve as building blocks in the participant’s’ personal development while moving through this program. The leadership principles are: Vision, Personal Responsibility, Respect, Integrity, Courage and Commitment. Lastly, participants will experience multiple elements of teamwork as a foundation to serve as a better leader.

The program will reach its objectives through a detailed plan, built by a diverse set of professionals in the areas of education and leadership development. Through a progression of group activities, personal reflection, individual challenges, and large group dialogue, the cumulative experience for individuals will shape and prepare them for their next steps personally and professionally.

Based upon current conditions we have placed our Institute program on hiatus, until 2021.  We will resume Executive Program this Spring. Our award winning youth program will continue this Fall in an online format. 
We recognize that leadership is needed now more than ever.  As we adapt to our current environment, we will provide additional updates.
