What makes an effective leader in different circumstances? In this programme, participants will be encouraged to explore different styles, apply numerous theories and make calculated decisions under challenging circumstances. Participants will explore the building blocks of leadership whilst exposed to adversity, pushing them to the very limits of their capacity, thus developing greater awareness of their ability to transcend themselves to greater achievements but more importantly, how others can as well.

The following is an example of what your itinerary may look like. Your actual course plan will vary according to permitting, weather, participant skills and abilities, and instructor planning/ assessment.
Arrive half an hour before your start time. This gives you time to proceed to the meet up point and await your group members.
We recommend you wear course clothing and shoes.
The most important part is what the material is made from, not its brand name.
In general, avoid cotton/ cotton blends and stick to synthetic fabrics like polyester or natural fibers like silk and wool. Being dressed for the course will also further efficiency on your first day.
Previous swimming and kayaking experience are not necessary. We will teach you the skills for wilderness journey both interpersonal and technical skills. Technical skills include: how to pack appropriately, navigation, and to cook your group meals over stoves and pots washing.
