Topic : Managing Motivation: Leadership Lessons from an AT Thru-Hike

Leadership, management, and motivation are not just metaphors, but things that the physicality of an endurance hike can inform…and it comes with beautiful trail pictures. 9 lessons from the trail remind us of how to self-manage and manage teams, all learned from the physicality of the trail.  These lessons lead to a realization of a simple technique to manage personal motivation to take on challenges. 

Participants will learn a technique for managing motivation that empowers success, as well as be reminded of 9 steps that have application directly to the management of projects to help us be better managers and leaders.
