For 10+ years I led wilderness expeditions and teaching groups and providing individual leadership coaching for Outward Bound Schools in 3 countries. Each expedition was a microcosm of values and behavior. The photo above represents an extension of those skills.

 

In 2006, I raced on a 10-day expeditionary adventure race, called Primal Quest. Our team of four traveled continuously together, over 600 miles, mountain biking, trail running, climbing, rappelling, canyoneering, kayaking, and river swimming through the wilderness near Moab, Utah. We finished and were featured on CBS Sports. Hence, the image reminds me of a good team experience.

 

Our primary team goal was to cross the finish line, and our secondary goal was to remain good friends. We accomplished each goal.

 

Now let me pose a leadership coaching question:  How do you measure excellence for your team?

 

     Team Action-Learning.com included Doug Gray (captain), Bill Jordan (hoss), Jennifer Rinderle (sparkplug) and Steve Deis (lead navigator).

 

In 2004 we finished Primal Quest Washington.

 

In 2008 we finished Primal Quest Montana.  Then we rested.  Because we were tired.

 

What are you waiting for?

We all need coaching at times.  Call Doug Gray, PCC, at 615.905.1892 today.
