because leadership is an adventure


The International Experiential Leadership Retreat Series is built around the Stronger People Leaders paradigm and workbook solution created by Dr. Sarah Skidmore. Throughout the Retreat, participants continually explore ways to maximize their potential, bolster their impact, and cultivate a positive human experience for themselves, their teams, and their organizations.

The Retreat is designed for participants who are physically able to engage activities such as (but not limited to) hiking, kayaking, and carrying a backpack. By design, this professional development experience is not one limited to a convention center or hotel ballroom. Rather, the experiential form of development calls participants to engage movement and the outdoors while flourishing as leaders.
