什麼是初衷？有什麼東西、什麼環境會使我們忘掉這初衷？今年Leadership Academy的主題，叫作”City Reboot”，用電腦愈跑愈慢的情況作比喻，清除纏累，重新啟動，重尋城市的初衷，也重新認識，怎樣的領袖，才會使這個世界變得美好。
領袖之為領袖，在於對世界的影響力。有些人憑藉想法而成為意見領袖（opinion leader）；有些人參與公共政策的設定而成為政治領袖（political leader）……在不同範疇有影響力，就自然成為那個範疇中的領袖，但領袖的好壞，不在乎影響力，卻在乎人心的質地。
City Reboot! A Word From Camp Manager
Dear LA 15 Campers,
Welcome on board! We will start a journey of 7 days together very soon. What are your feelings now? Exciting? A bit worried of the unknown? Joyful? Curious?
What are your expectations? What do you want to get and what are you willing to contribute?
The outcome depends on your choice and attitude. The key is: the more you are involved in the process, the more you will experience and get!
The theme of this year is City Reboot! What I can share with you now are the magic words I've got:
Compassion • Connection • Community
Reflect • Reimagine • Respond
In this era, many say that no one can represent himself/herself. It seems that no one can be my boss and I'm my own boss. It is true that everyone is unique, but at the same time, we are relational being in social context. We are interdependent and complement each other. We need each other and live as a community.
We believe that "There's a leader in you!" Everyone is gifted with talents and has potential to develop leadership qualities. If everyone can be leader, here comes the question: who are my followers?
Yes, you are a leader, and at the same time, you are a follower! How can it be? The answer is to be explored in the 7-day journey, and yet, it would be extended to a life-long one if you are genuine to your "self" and love your city. Are you ready to say, "I do"?
You are blessed to have mentors, peers and all the committed staff and volunteers to travel with you. Wish you a wonderful and fruitful journey!
