Improve your leadership skills, develop your communication, and push yourself to new limits while whitewater canoeing down the majestic San Juan River. Explore the river corridor and amazing human history of the San Juan by canoe on this 6-day expedition designed for professional financial planners and executives. Navigate the technical and environmental challenges of the river as you explore your capabilities as a leader. NOLS instructors will expose you to field-based learning that holds transferrable skills that will serve your professional career and rejuvenate your spirit. This expedition provides invaluable opportunities to see yourself in a dynamic wilderness setting, and to enhance not only your outdoor skills, but also your apporach to leadership in new and challenging circumstances. 

The San Juan River flows through rugged, high canyon walls of ancient, multi-colored sedimentary rock, and is home to wildlife such as cutthroat trout and black bear. You will travel through these corridors, working together to identify and manage river hazards and paddle class I-III rapids. Immerse yourself in the natural environment and learn with fellow executives and professional outdoor leaders. 

Successful expeditions require the same essential skills found in the professional world--effective communication, problem solving, positive influence, and strategically delivering results. Return to your organization holding practical and transferable strategies with greater leadership effectiveness.
