Product Description
 
250,000 people every year attend Outward Bound's iconic wilderness training courses--this is the first book to describe in detail the philosophy behind those trainings.

Outward Bound has helped develop millions of leaders by stressing that every team needs leaders at all levels and that the nominal team leader must learn alongside the team, never from a position of superiority. Based on the foundational ideas of educator Kurt Hahn, Outward Bound teaches that leaders lead best when they have taught self-reliance and mutual responsibility and can fade into the background. Countless companies and organizations have used Outward Bound lessons (and you do not need to climb a mountain to use them) to strengthen their teams. Noted Outward Bound leader and educator Mark Brown shares these unique lessons with readers-

1. Leaders are learners
2. Leaders create a safe environment to take risks
3. Leaders develop other leaders at all levels
4. Leaders understand the journey is the destination
5. Leaders always watch for teachable moments
6. Leaders are always ready to serve a greater good
7. Leaders facilitate a Graduated Level of Responsibility for all those in their care250,000 people every year attend Outward Bound's iconic wilderness training courses--this is the first book to describe in detail the philosophy behind those trainings.
