Made Wild: Exploring Leadership Distinction in the Wilderness (LSCCs ONLY)

  • N Manitou Trail Leland, MI, 49654 United States (map)

In the territory of our lives, there is space that is charted, mapped, and well known.  And then, there is the wilderness - natural, beautiful, and untamed.

Throughout life, leaders who are willing and prepared to take on the high risks of building something better in an imperfect world are essential. We need leaders that are willing to map out the internal territory that has always been there, but is uncharted and unowned.

Made Wild is a wilderness coaching experience in the Lark’s Song Wilderness Series. It is rooted in the belief that a wild and beautiful world was intentionally designed and created out of chaos.  Order and unity emerged from this chaos, providing the raw materials needed for exploring creative solutions to complex problems. The wilderness provides a strategic framework and incomparable learning environment, making it the ideal place to challenge yourself and advance your leadership potential.

Made Wild is a coaching experience designed to deepen personal learning and compel courageous action in your leadership.  In addition to leadership development through creative group initiatives, challenges, and individual coaching, you will also develop transferable skills in problem-solving, interpersonal communication, creative and critical thinking, systems coaching exercises, crisis and stress management, and reflective contemplation.

Lark’s Song is pioneering the field of experience-assisted coaching.  Our belief is that life coaching combined with unique experiences reveal unowned and unchartered leadership capacities within.  To begin new discoveries, our wilderness coaches are providing a 5 day, round-trip excursion from Marion, Indiana to North Manitou Island, Michigan.  Come and discover the uncharted territory of your own leadership -- after all, you were Made Wild.  

This Made Wild trip is specifically designed for individuals that have completed the Lark’s Song Certified Coach (LSCC) training program. We will be incredibly intentional about caring for your souls and developing your coaching skills through practical and experiential continuing education on this trip.
