What is The Leadership Experience @ Key West (The Experience)?

Experiential learning is the best method for adults to learn.  Provide them with some context, place them in a simulation and learning naturally occurs.  The Experience does just that – provides participants with context through an assessment called Work of Leaders - shows them how those leadership qualities have demonstrated themselves in history - through guided tour and discuss at the Truman Little White House and then places participants in a situation that requires the use of leadership abilities and skills – sailing a 105 foot Schooner America 2.0. 

Who Should Attend The Experience?

Everyone from first-line supervisors to corporate board members has praised the effectiveness of these seminars. The most powerful learning occurs when a leader brings her/his team—often including clients and suppliers as well as direct reports.
