Workshop: Developing Your Leadership

Bring theory to life.

The Workshop is comprised of adaptable, focused discussions interspersed with activities which lend context to the discussion and put principles into practice.

Everyone has some life experience with leadership in general, whether as a leader or from being affected by leaders. Bring awareness to what is effective leadership, why you’re having success in the areas where you are, and consider how to expand that success into the areas in which you’d like to grow. Round out your existing knowledge. Stay abreast of current best practices. Build confidence and sensitivity.

The Workshop is inspired by British Canoeing’s new Guide Endorsement program, and the Guide Modules that support it. Guide Endorsement is a broader level of care than that of a leader. While the Modules themselves are available to everyone, Guide Endorsement is only available after 2 years of experience as a certified Leader.

Three Guide Modules included:
Trip Planning and Organization
Customer Experience


None, more than in interest in leadership. Open to everyone, from career-starters, to guides pursuing endorsement, and anyone in-between

Setting: Single day courses based in Loreto. Classroom plus practice in sheltered water.
Craft: A variety. Sea kayak, SOT, SUP, canoe, surfski.
Transportation: Walking to classroom and/or waterfront daily
