NOLS: National Outdoor Leadership School Home

Expedition Leadership | Leadership Roles | Leadership Skills
Leadership Style | Leadership in 30 Days | Leadership Profiles

While each member in the group may be aware of the leadership role they fulfill and the leadership skills they are practicing, the way in which each person behaves is reflective of their leadership style.

The one signature style is the leadership style that works best for each individual. This style is based on tapping into the leader’s personality, learning preferences, passions, strengths and experiences.

There are many unique situations that confront you as a leader. Choosing the right style to lead in the group in any given situation is the true art of leadership.


The leadership skills you learn at NOLS will work in your daily life too.
