Challenges of Moving Technically Proficient Adventurers in to Expedition Leadership Roles

Deep wreck diving in the cold dark waters of the North Atlantic require solid planning and a dive leadership team with common competencies, skills, and experience

What is it that makes great expedition leaders?  Unfortunately, the model we use today is to promote (in an organization or by self promotion) someone who is technically proficient into roles where they are now responsible for the lives of others. Not only does this pose a risk to the success of the adventure, but can also have significant impacts on the leader- including exposure to legal action against them.

It doesn’t matter if you are leading a group of riders across Canada on  bikes or putting together your annual hunting camp. If you are a leader of any kind of adventure, you need to be trained in sound leadership principles.
