U-Inspire Leadership

The U-Inspire Leadership Program is a year-long, intimate and dynamic, two-way coaching/mentoring experience. Our Leadership team will be paired up with their partner for once a month 45-60 minute leadership encouragement sessions.

The year-long curriculum takes the U-Inspire student on an adventure into the depths of self-reflection to promote compassion, awareness and the ability to lead with kindness in an authentic, passionate and purposeful way.

Below is an overview of the 12-month journey. If you’d like more information about the process, please email Brian Cronin brian@udistrictpt.com

Month 1:
Kind Is Courageous

“No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.” ~ Ameila Earnhart
