This expedition is designed to provide potential or current fire crew supervisors the tools to build and lead highly functional crews. The curriculum is based on genuine leadership opportunities that take place in the field – formal classes on leadership theory and communication will take place just as they would in a traditional class setting, but here they are action-based.
Trainees will hike cross-country from a start point to a finish point while investigating and exploring group dynamics and leadership values and principles. There will be significant technical, navigation, and environmental challenges as participant leaders decide the best approach to meet group goals. Your instructors will play evolving roles as participants’ knowledge, experience and abilities increase during this self-contained expedition.
The participant group will take on increasing levels of personal and team responsibility for the technical, navigational and interpersonal aspects of the traveling course. Instructors will provide structured briefing, debriefing, feedback, technical expertise, safety management, evaluation, classes and structure for participant leadership and followership opportunities.
