Cluster Facilitator

The Family Cluster is the formal support and reference group for the participants during the week, and the Cluster Facilitator serves as the group's resource, catalyst, and facilitator. Because the Cluster Facilitator has considerable interaction with the participants, he/she is one of the most valuable members of the facilitator team during The LeaderShape Institute. The Cluster Facilitator will support participants as they develop their Breakthrough Blueprints and encourage positive interpersonal and group skills in a safe and trusting setting. Cluster Facilitators are also encouraged to maintain contact with members of their Family Cluster following The LeaderShape Institute. This contact helps participants "stay in action" to successfully achieve their visions after the program.

Specific roles within the Family Cluster and Learning Community include:

  • Modeling leadership behavior and acting with integrity
  • Clarifying, summarizing, and sharing ideas
  • Guiding group discussions
  • Teaching selected segments of the curriculum
  • Establishing a climate conducive to learning
  • Challenging thinking and encouraging reflection and feedback

Cluster Facilitator Job Description

What happens at the LeaderShape® Institute?

Utilizing highly interactive program methods rather than classroom lectures, everyone is a teacher and everyone is a learner.  The majority of work is done in a large group called the Learning Community.  From this larger group, smaller groups, called Family Clusters, are formed where participants work on their vision statements.  The Family Cluster provides a supportive, safe environment that promotes learning and the development of new skills and attitudes.

At the LeaderShape® Institute, participants create a LeaderShape® Breakthrough Blueprint they can begin to implement as soon as they leave.  The objective of each participant’s blueprint is to produce extraordinary results in their organization and their institution during the next nine to 12 months.
