About the expedition

Patagonia is a frontier of campos (ranches) hidden in isolated mountain valleys, ragged icy peaks, swift-moving rivers, and cathedral fjords. This is a land that demands exploration and you will experience its dramatic peaks, vast valleys, and mysterious wilderness. You will explore this remote world and experience mercurial weather, conditions that will build resilience and tolerance for adversity and uncertainty - skills relevant in today's global economy. 

The Haas Extreme Leadership Patagonia Course is an eight-day field-based training in which you will learn leadership and technical outdoor skills in one of the world's most amazing classrooms. There will be a strong focus on being an adaptable team member and the ability to distinguish between the roles of team member (active follower) and leam leader (designated leader). Throughout the course you will exercise individual decisiveness, while simultaneously facilitating effective teamwork. Curriculum delivery will concentrate on situational leadership skills applicable to school, business, and social life.
