Executive Challenge Course

Spend  five days on our beautiful wilderness acreage while you explore your own capabilities to lead... and to follow... effectively.  You will develop and practice leadership skills on the edge... leading on your hind feet, leading in times of stress and uncertainty, adapting to the unexpected and getting to the best answer fast. You will learn how to be resourceful and self-sufficient, as well as how to get the most out of the resources around you.

You will also learn new skills... and surprise yourself with your ability to:

  • Navigate by map and compass through our 700 acre wilderness property
  • Build a "hooch" and spend two nights in the bush
  • Learn and use CPR and Field First Aid
  • Solve problems creatively and lead your team through to successful completion
  • Shoot a "challenge" target 1/2 kilometer away

And you will learn more about yourself in these 5 days than you have in years. Frequent debriefs by the instructors and peer reviews from fellow students will give you insight into your own abilities as you progress through the course. As well, you will be given time to reflect on your own motivations and abilities without interference from the outside world. 

The Executive Challenge Course is taught in the positive style that we use for all of our courses. Open to Executives (civilian and law enforcement).
