Join a small group of professionals from the business, government, military and non-profit worlds to participate in a week-long executive sea kayak expedition in Concepcion Bay, Baja, Mexico. It is designed for participants to accelerate their leadership capabilities, learn from their peers’ experiences, explore their signature style as leaders and develop deeper awareness of expedition behavior as a driver for a dynamic & productive work environment.

The foundation of the course is built upon NOLS’ essential expedition skills of effective communication, problem-solving, positive influence, and strategically delivering results. Participants navigate the technical and environmental challenges of field-based learning in the wilderness by getting out of their comfort zones, adapting to a steadily evolving set of scenarios, committing to group over self and learning by collaborating with others.

Participants graduate from the course with transferable skills that will serve them to step forward and lead in their professional career and community.
