Lessons from the River:  Paddling Together to Plan and Problem Solve

Guiding Organizational Change

  • Engage with team members more effectively in a classroom setting and rafting rapids.
  • Utilize techniques for self-assessment and reflection that improve education, leadership skills and team-building capabilities.
  • Understand what it means to authentically engage with others by incorporating effective listening strategies, practicing different dialogue approaches and learning facilitation skills.
  • Identify measurable and solid program outcomes and goals.

  • To leave with the most effective plan attend the four-day session.


By stepping outside the usual comfort zone of your busy lives, you and your team will recognize the significance of inter-dependency, reconnect with your own deeper purpose and build a stronger team. You will learn new skills to help identify patterns causing persistent, nagging issues embedded in your organizational systems. With time to plan, your team will apply these new tools for breaking through unhealthy patterns to reach intended outcomes with a solid plan for immediate  implementation.
