The Alaska Leadership Adventure is not just an exclusive, breath-taking outdoor adventure trip, but an excellent opportunity for elite senior leader teams to grow together, diving deep into leadership philosophy, energy, temperament, and customized learning goals for your team. Through team training workshops and outdoor adventures in the rugged beauty of Alaska, participants learn practical leadership tools that will benefit their organizations immediately.
We start with a comprehensive assessment of your leadership style and the activities that drive you to succeed – this, before you even arrive. The result is a personal leadership profile that identifies the qualities and activities that energize you as a leader.
We spend the first day in the classroom. You’ll discover:
Why some leadership activities energize you while others drain you
Your preferred work style, your expectations of yourself and others, and your instinctive needs
What causes you to feel stressed or behave irrationally, and why
The temperaments of the others in your group
Why misunderstands and miscommunication occur
How to communicate and give feedback in a way that’s understood and effective
The power of defining and using your own personal leadership philosophy as a leadership tool
Finally, we’ll spend some time preparing for the adventure of the next two days.
On days two and three, we’ll hit the trail for an overnight backpacking adventure in the breathtaking Chugach Mountains. (The hike we choose will be based on the weather forecast and physical fitness level of your team.) Along the way, we’ll continue our discussion of leadership temperament, leadership philosophy, and communication. We’ll see how various temperament types play out during our group adventure. We’ll see how various temperament types:
Deal with stress
Handle new responsibilities
Nurture other groups members
Collaborate to overcome challenges
On day four, we’ll return to the classroom for a half-day debrief, wrap up and graduation, and finish by noon.
You’ll return to your organization with new insights and an action plan for putting what you’ve learned into practice immediately. Your facilitator will provide follow-up coaching for 90 days, providing added accountability and practical training to implement your performance plans and see real results for your organizations.

Caution:Our overnight hikes require carrying a backpack weighing up to 30 pounds. Participants are responsible for being in reasonably good physical condition when they arrive. (Shorter, easier trips are available if not everyone in the group is in shape for the longer hikes.) It is also critical to have well-broken-in hiking boots, as blisters can make the trek unpleasant. The trek will go rain or shine, so proper clothing is very important. Click here for a recommended list of items you are responsible to bring on the backpacking trip.
Participants are responsible for arranging their own lodging in Anchorage on the evenings of day one and day three. You may also need to reserve lodging for evenings before and after the course,depending on when you arrive. Click here for a list of hotels near the classroom site. Recommend making hotel reservations as early as possible, as hotels in Anchorage tend to fill up in summer months.
