“Make your fun have meaning.” Through a variety of interactive problem-solving activities and outdoor experiences, Adventure Leadership facilitators regularly help teams develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships to others within their organization’s environment. A significant part of this process relies heavily on creating a secure space for exploration—both physically and emotionally. In this workshop, you will learn how to leverage Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle, Tuckman’s Stages of Group Development, and Project Adventure’s Challenge By Choice philosophy to build an internal locus of control within each member of any team and by empowering individuals to decide how they can best engage and participate in group processes. Learn to lead by instilling others with a sense of self-efficacy and develop trust while also increasing confidence, testing endurance, and practicing resilience.

This workshop is designed for master's students, doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
