“It’s a challenge course, not a success course” a practitioner said under his breath, as he watched a belayer give so much tension that it assists a climber across a traversing element. This workshop invites practitioners of facilitated challenge course programs to reflect on some fundamental leadership and program design questions about challenge and success.
Practitioners will consider how overall program design impacts how participants approach high elements.
Practitioners will have the opportunity to reflect on how the truly approach real struggle, and honestly evaluate our motives for intervening.
The workshop will include discussion about situations that may call for intentionally reducing struggle, or gearing a group toward success.
