Will Steger Polar Explorer
Jeff Appelquist and renowned polar explorer Will Steger are piloting an exciting new leadership development program based upon the indelible and hard-won lessons that Will took away from his epic polar expeditions.
Commencing in the spring of 2022, Will and Jeff will co-facilitate an unforgettable three-day experiential learning program in the beautiful wilderness surroundings of the magnificent Steger Center for Innovation and Leadership in Ely, Minnesota. It is truly “the coolest place on Earth”. Participants will have ample time to commune with nature and enjoy the exquisite scenery of the Steger Center’s expansive property in Northern Minnesota’s Boundary Waters region. Target audience for this program is leaders of all kinds, at any level, in any field. Both intact teams and individuals are welcome.
Why did Will Steger forego the easy path and choose a hard life of exploration? How did he plan and make decisions? How did he lead diverse teams of people through sometimes brutal conditions? How did he deal with chaos, challenge and change? How did he persevere and overcome against seemingly insurmountable obstacles? Come “explore” these and other critical questions with the great Will Steger. Click here to learn more.
