In today’s global landscape, where micro-interactions and non-stop demands often set the tone, providing organizations a powerful way to disconnect from the every day and reconnect with each other can be the catalyst for a high-performing team.
Your team needs confidence, resilience, and leadership to accomplish their goals. Through experiential learning, a team can deepen their bonds, strengthen their decision-making capacity, and prepare to lead in a changing world.
For over five decades, NOLS instructors have leveraged wilderness classrooms, outdoor skills, and a proven leadership model to help organizations and teams move through their daily grind. By customizing an expedition course, from a few days to a full week, participants will draw on existing strengths and uncover areas of growth, and walk away with the skills to succeed—together.
Prepare your team to lead in a changing world.
NOLS Custom Education designs 7-30 day expeditions in the world's great wilderness areas, and 1-3 day leadership adventures as close as your local park for groups and teams who want to deepen their rapport, grow their understanding of each other, and work together to overcome real challenges. Our programs blend our clients’ learning objectives with NOLS’ proven curriculum to create experiences that build skills and confidence, and help our students learn to lead in every role and on every team.
