I have been a Leadership Educator working in the field of Student Development for 23 years. My background includes extensive work with group facilitation using team building activities and challenge ropes course activities and initiative problems. I am a certified Strengths Finder and Strengths Quest Advocate through the Gallup organization. I have facilitated Strengths workshops for many different types of groups of all ages and backgrounds. In addition, I have conducted individual Strengths Coaching sessions for hundreds of students at Furman University.

Title Description

Peak Performance Challenge Course

Leaders today are challenged to develop within their organizations the kind of teamwork that fosters innovative problem solving and enhances productivity. Spend a day outside at Furman and experience the Peak Performance outdoor adventure challenge course. Peak Performance is a sequence of increasingly complex and challenging activities designed to increase individual and group knowledge. By exposing issues such as control, communication, conflict, authority and individual listening skills in a non-judgmental way, Peak Performance allows team members to identify the barriers that inhibit performance and to explore solutions that enhance productivity by challenging them mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Partial- and full-day programs are available and can be custom designed to meet your group's specific needs.
