PARK CITY, Utah. – Plenty Consulting has collaborated with the Park City Chamber of Commerce to offer two scholarships to its Lantern Leadership Retreat, which is approaching its 7th year. Lantern will be hosted at HeartSpace, Plenty’s private retreat center in Park City from October 19-21. Two alumni of the most recent 27th session of Leadership Park City (LPC) will be sponsored by the Chamber to attend Plenty’s Lantern.
Lantern is a four-day retreat for conscious leaders designed to re-inspire and reinvent its participants. It is a natural complement to LPC’s program that focuses on perspective and our community’s challenges.
“What we’re trying to do is create community amongst the people in the class,” said Myles Rademan, Founder, Leadership Park City. “What we’ve learned from the work we’ve done over the 27 years is that [participants] always say the most important part of the class was the people they met and learned from them. We provide a safe space and an interesting space for people to learn about the community, to learn about some of the issues, and we do some internal work.”
LPC focuses on leadership within our community, gaining perspective from other leaders and municipalities. In its 28th year, the LPC has seen over 600 alumni, many active in the community serving on boards or in City Council.
On the flip side, Lantern creates an environment for leaders to dive internally into their minds, hearts, and souls to surface innate desires, and natural strengths to grow in work and life.
“Lantern isn’t your ordinary leadership class,” said Jennifer Mulholland and Jeff Shuck, Principals of Plenty. “It’s not a workshop for people who need to learn what to do. Lantern is a retreat for conscious leaders who are ready to be re-inspired about how to be. With over 250 graduates, Lantern is approaching its seventh year, offering an inside-out approach to leadership development. Each day consists of mindfulness exercises, guided meditations, leadership curriculum, deep listening, individual reflection, small group work, outdoor excursions, locally sourced food, and juicy conversations to help executives, entrepreneurs and professionals increase self-awareness, find clarity, and confidence, and align passions with purpose.”
With attendees from around the globe, Lantern offers its participants an opportunity to expand further the perspective gained through Leadership Park City. Developed with an approach to individuality, Lantern side-steps the one-size-fits-all leadership mindset typical in business environments.

“To this end, the Chamber is funding two scholarships to send visionary local leaders to attend Lantern. The skills and curriculum at Lantern provide the platform for critical thinking and value-driven leadership and will enhance not only the careers of the attendees but also contribute to Park City’s future by emboldening current leaders to focus on their passions and to lead with their hearts and minds. We are delighted that the Lantern retreat takes place in Park City and that we have the opportunity to send current leaders so the entire community may benefit from the curriculum,” says Wesselhoff
Following the four-day retreat, Lantern attendees take their renewed confidence, clarity, learnings, and friends into their businesses, organizations, community, and life. Many choose to come back the next year to continue the growth and self-reflection at Lantern II, the advanced leadership retreat held over the Autumn Equinox.
