Mt. Adams Climb
What is hardiness and resilience and why can some people access it and others cannot? In this unique immersion you will be introduced to psychological hardiness through readings, team projects and a climb at Mt. Adams, the second highest peak in Washington State.
You will gain an understanding of existentialism by exploring what is meaningful and how what is meaningful, informs attitude and feeds courage during adversity, both personally and organizationally. You will examine how leaders have both failed and succeeded during extremely difficult circumstances.
Using course readings and research you will investigate what makes an organization hardy and resilient. You will work within a small team and as a class as you plan your expedition to Mt. Adams.
