Our Sailing SALDA presents a uniquely challenging adventure activity and contemporary leadership assessments (360 Feedback and Hogan Personality Assessments) that can meet your leadership developmental requirements so you can become the best version of yourself.

  • Real risk - Utilising rafting to enhance your learning by creating real risk situations that put you outside your comfort zone to increase learning from points of reflection and feedback.
  • Participants will be put into complex and ambiguous environments with only recently gained knowledge to succeed. This unique ingredient can expose participants on how they make decisions, deal with stress and interact with others.
  •  Social risk - The contemporary leadership theory sessions will help you understand your behaviours and expose your strengths and weaknesses through discussions. Course content can include the key tools of the Leadership Benchmark 360 feedback from your workplace, Hogan Personality Assessments, self-and-peer feedback and finally purposeful designed workplace strategies.

These five or six day* courses, which are ideally located near an airport and the natural wonder of Lake Rotoiti, have a deliberate mix of ingredients in an intimate environment away from the workplace.  This unique combination has been proven through research to help create a greater level of self-awareness, which equals a more enjoyable workplace and increased work profit.

    Ashley has worked with an array of leaders who have all demonstrated the many and varying styles of leadership. Through an understanding of leadership profiling and the use of development tools, Ashley has aided in their leadership awareness and effectiveness whilst working in an austere environment. Ashley utilises a fully participative instructional delivery style. His inclusive approach allows all to own the lesson/discussion and thereby draw on personal examples to improve. Ashley is an open and enthusiastic individual. His zest for life creates a positive vibe that encourages people to achieve. Challenging people to move out of their comfort zone has associated risk. Ashley puts safety first whilst still achieving challenging and dynamic environments.
