About the expedition

On the NOLS Patagonia Leadership Expedition, you will hone practical leadership strategies and technical outdoor skills over seven days of travel in the isolated mountain valleys, ragged icy peaks, dry glacier, and swift-moving rivers of Patagonia. On a daily basis you will be challenged to exercise individual decisiveness while simultaneously facilitating excellent teamwork, skills. The weather in this part of the world is often unpredictable and challenging; however, these conditions build resilience and tolerance for adversity and uncertainty. 

There will be a strong focus on leadership styles with an opportunity to connect leadership theories to practical leadership skills. As a designated leader, peer leader and active follower you'll develop your situational leadership skills on this expedition to increase your competency as a leader at school, in business, and in your social life.
