Discover the Impact of a Summit

Signal Energy made an intentional decision to invest in developing their team members as leaders. After attending a  Summit to better understand the scope of the experience, they knew pretty quickly that it would be a good fit for their company. They found that Summits not only met their goals for development but also shared overlapping core values. As a result, they returned to another Summit with a group of managers in an effort to build a strong leadership culture.

“I think the most commendable thing I noticed in my short time at WinShape is how much they led by example. I felt that everything I learned was exactly what I was seeing in how the sessions were run and overall how WinShape truly had a servant spirit in serving us. I loved the questions that made us think about what we were taking in. I loved the table discussions and connections with each other, and finally I absolutely loved the activities! They definitely kept me engaged in the moment. Overall WinShape far exceeded my expectations and I'm looking forward to hopefully coming back.”

“This was one of the best learning environments I've had the pleasure of attending. Between the activities and the lessons, it allowed us to put into practice ideas we had just learned, as well as a 'measuring stick mentality' as in being able to see the progression from one activity to the next. Cant wait for Lead Others!”

“I enjoyed connecting with other organizations and learning things in a different light. I wouldn't have done so otherwise. I have building blocks to start implementing my takeaways.”
