Program Components

“One of my favorite things about the CRC Leadership program was having the ability to get to know dynamic leaders from a wide variety of nonprofits from around the state. The organizations were all different shapes, sizes, and mission focuses, however the passion that drives leaders in this industry was consistent and contagious. This was a wonderful experience!” – Ann-Marie Meighan, Class of 2015

This rewarding adventure is suitable for everyone regardless of age, previous outdoor experience, athletic ability, or physical condition. All activities are “challenge by choice” and highlight individual leadership, problem-solving, and team-building styles. The Outdoor Retreat is experiential learning and teamwork at their best!

DiSC Profile Assessment

DiSC is a personal assessment tool used to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication. DiSC is non-judgmental and helps people discuss their behavioral differences. The DiSC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors with others. As part of this program, you will be given this assessment tool and an opportunity to review your results with a certified DiSC Profile trainer. Learn more about DiSC Profile.


Program participants have the opportunity to connect with a qualified professional to provide one-on-one personalized support. Leaders choose between executive coaching or consulting based on their needs. This is a valuable opportunity for leaders to drill down on a specific issue they are working to resolve in their leadership position.
