Leadership & Team Building

Five people are adrift in the Pacific. Two survive and three die…why? What did the two survivors have that those that perished did not? Some businesses succeed and grow in this uncertain economy while others fail…do you have the same “will to survive and thrive” in any economic situation? The instructors at Mountain Shepherd have discovered that the two, wilderness and business survival, are more similar than they ever believed possible AND that teaching them in tandem creates a brilliant learning atmosphere which exponentially increase ones knowledge and ingrains that knowledge indelibly in both arenas.
