Each provide participants with a unique opportunity to discover, increase, and utilize their leadership skills, values, and strengths in different settings. The Cardinal Leadership Academy is based on Social Change Model with each workshop focusing on leadership as a process rather than a position with positive change being the ultimate goal. Each area of the Cardinal Leadership Academy focuses on a specific area of leadership.  Emerging Leaders focuses on individual leadership, Cardinal Leaders on group leadership, and Boundless societal leadership. All three areas of The Cardinal Leadership Academy end with a unique leadership opportunity!
