For the second year running, JCI Sheffield hosted the JCI UK LEAP “Leadership Exellence in Action Programme”. Over 25 delegates attended the course and we were please to have 3 JCI Sheffield members as delegates this year, Gareth, Helen and Hannah. This is what they said about it.
Gareth Carson – Gsters Beauty
What an amazing weekend. I have learnt so much about myself and how I interact with other people. So where did this journey start? it was a warm Friday afternoon and I arrived at the Holiday Inn feeling a little nervous. We started the day with an ice breaker and before you knew it I had made some super friends. The weekend continued with much work and some fun. After a morning of group exercisers and bonding as a group we were working until late that night on our group presentation which was so successful we won best presentation! I have learnt loads more about JCI and about continuing my active citizenship. I would recommended this to everyone wanting self development and to learn more about the JCI mission.

The LEAP training weekend was really beneficial to me and my business. I not only learnt about a lot about myself and how I work within a team but also how other people work and the best way to communicate with certain personality traits. This has made me revaluate how I communicate with members of my team and if I can support them more effectively with their work to get the best from them.
It was also a great opportunity to meet other UK and worldwide JCI members and learn more about the organisation. All in all a fantastic experience and amazing value for money! A really great weekend.
Hannah Bailey – Wise Choice Nutrition
Leap was a fantastic experience for cementing my knowledge on JCI and learning a lot about myself. I also learnt a lot about working with people in a team and how to communicate effectively with them to ensure you reach the goal. I enjoyed being pushed out of my comfort zone and meeting lots of JCI members from around the world.
I learnt so many new skills in terms of communication and leadership. I feel I would be a better leader now having done the training and look forward to putting thr skills in to practise with the chamber
Mark Smith – SAFE@LAST
After being a delegate on the first LEAP training weekend last year, it was a great opportunity to join the training team this year and to be on other side as a facilitator. Adopting this role helped to consolidate my learning and develop my training experience. I got to lead on an active ice breaker exercise which was fun to see how the delegates approached it and how people worked in teams. I also got the chance to deliver a couple of workshops and to give feedback after the group work. I was proud to be involved with this award winning national project and look forward to taking an even more active role next year.
