LEADING WITH LOVE
How do you teach compassionate leadership? Ogichi’s pioneering Leadership Development & Advanced Canoeing (LDAC) program gives young women the tools to manage the needs of a group and its individual members. From trip budgeting and paddling whitewater to commitment and empathy, LDACs learn the hard skills and soft skills necessary for effective leadership in the wilderness—and in the wider world.
With a map and compass, LDACs learn to navigate Mother Nature. Using the Enneagram, a growth-focused personality typography, they learn to navigate human nature. The LDAC program is a multiyear progression; skills are accrued and added to an ever-expanding “leadership toolbox.”
