This will be an IN-PERSON event – no online, no hybrid. Masks are optional, but we know that may change by the time the Training starts.

Get connected with like-minded souls, interested in helping students (and others) find purpose and meaning in life. You will learn about our SPARCK Framework, which addressees these questions:

  • (Story) “Who am I?”
  • (Purpose) “What am I here to do?”
  • (Aspirations) “Where do I want to go?”
  • (Reflection) “How am I doing?”
  • (Connection) “Who will help/support me?”
  • (Kick-Start) “What will I do now?”

It is one of the few Trainings where you’ll engage in introspective activities that will challenge you to reflect on your own life to understand the impact you WILL have on others!

You will learn strategies to move people from Transition to Transformation!

We are excited to share our new LDC Training format with you, where we will spend the first two days (Monday and Tuesday) developing your “Catalyst Compass” (a new tool) and the last half-day on strategies to implement your mission statement and your student success (marketing) promise. You will leave with a host of tools, a better understanding of yourself, and a plan to for work – now and in the future.
