Review for Illinois Leadership Seminars (ILS), Oak Park, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ILS was a life-changing seminar to whoever attended it. When I attended seminar I learned so much that I can bring back into my school, community, and anywhere else I go! I learned more things than just the lessons from key note speakers or panels, I also learned lessons from all the people around me! One of my favorite parts of seminar were when we heard the scenarios and had to pick where we stood. I loved hearing everybody's different opinions and thoughts on the scenarios! I most of the time was very sure of the side I had chosen and I at first would never switch sides. But after hearing what everybody had to say I could be in the middle or change sides because of what my fellow leaders were saying. These helped make me a better leader because before I had trouble listening to what others said and just wanted to go my way. But know I can listen to others and make a compromise. I also saw people breaking out of their box at seminar. I was never scared to share my opinion but when I saw people in my group who were shy or didn't speak in front of others much share their opinions it made me and everybody else in my group so happy! We knew then that ILS had changed them and that they were going to be the leader that their sponsor knew they could be! I would never change what happened at ILS for anything in the world! It made me and every other Leader, Junior Counselor, and Senior Staff member a better leader.
