Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina graduates 24 in 2013 ABLE Leader Bootcamp

On November 7, the Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina’s Carolina Academy graduated 24 students from its ABLE Leader Bootcamp. The students came from all areas of the nonprofit sector in South Carolina.

The Carolina Academy provides individuals and organizations in South Carolina with the opportunity to expand their skills and knowledge and enhance educational access, while cultivating personal and organizational responsibility and capacity. The ABLE Leader Bootcamp is one such learning opportunity within the Carolina Academy.

Facilitated by Charles Weathers, the intensive leadership program exposed students to tools and strategies that are practiced by the most effective leaders—leaders who explore the potential in every opportunity by asking “What am I able to do?” In the face adversity, uncertainty and difficulty, they know the mission must be accomplished.

At the graduation ceremony, Weathers said, “Our intention is to unleash your leadership so that you can have a meaningful impact on the world.” This was done through an intensive eight-month program that helped students learn to deal with difficult people, navigate uncertainty and change, make tough decisions while honoring their values and principles, set the tone for a productive environment, confront reality while remaining positive, and turning “tripping” points into “tipping” points.
