Leadership and Team idea expedition

“Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. ”— Margaret Meade

Join us on an expedition challenge where you will experience how to truly become a high performing team.

You will learn R.E.A.L. insights among your team, share inside secrets of team success in some challenging situations—you will “surthrive” with new leadership skills and your collective performance will soar to new dynamic heights.



According to the daily Gallup research statistics, 70% (fluctuating +/- 3%) U.S. workers are not engaged at work. It is discussed and bantered around, but clearly your people and the collective team(s) are your most valuable asset. Jim Collins in his trailblazing book “Good To Great” some years ago said, “A truly visionary company embraces both ends of a continuum: continuity and change, conservatism and progressiveness, stability and revolution, predictability and chaos, heritage and renewal, fundamentals and craziness. And, and, and.

Collins also said, “Indeed, the ability to create organizational innovations is more important in building a great company than the ability to create product, technology, and market innovations.” This is why we take your team through a two-day invigorating journey resulting in high performance for your team at extraction.



Our structured CHAOS approach to team development. Picasso said, "Every act of creation begins with an act of destruction." We begin with a process to break down the current status of your team.

Experientially, we begin to learn:

  • Where you stand in relation to your potential as a higher performing individual AND team.
  • To establish values, goals and a new true north for the team.
  • More about your strengths and a deeper level of team engagement.
  • How to open communications, share your old story, understand, and seek truth with each other.
  • How to build/rebuild trust.
  • Learn how to solve problems together – creatively, and much more efficiently.
  • To develop an open mindset by creating a new story together.
  • How to move from conflict to commitment to results.




Any team with a common goal or outcome who wishes to row in the same direction. A team is defined as a small group of people that work collectively towards a common goal. Consider these wise words, “It is not uncommon for leaders to admit their focus and commitment had previously been to the individual teams they lead, rather than the leadership team of which they are members." ~David Simpson—The Table Group

If your team is experiencing any of the following issues:

~ Ever wondered why some teams are more engaged than others?

~ Eroding trust and disloyalty— How can you  recover and rebuild it?

~ Avoid confrontation or accountability.

~ Don’t hold each other responsible for performance.



“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.”   — Mark Jenkins


We believe in our proven experiential teaching/learning model. This is not your typical “team-building-get-a-rope-hold-hands-around-the-fire-sing-Kumbaya” workshop!  We invite everyone to “play-full-out” assuming responsibility for their own learning.

This includes:

Individual, paired, and group exercises and activities designed to uncover strengths in each team member and the collective group. You will explore R.E.A.L. physical and mental challenges:





Discussions, debriefing, and coaching will deepen your learning and increase the chances of breakthrough aha’s. This will ultimately strengthen the bonds and fabric of your team.

A variety of media, techniques and materials will be customized based on where your team is in their collective development.
