Team Leadership Training

Franklin Point viewing platform, San Mateo County, California.

Omega Wolf Trails day-long team leadership training sessions make use of the public spaces (forests, foothills, vineyards, and coastlines) surrounding Silicon Valley in order to strengthen group-based skill sets in ways that are fascinating, fun, and formative of character.

Each session enhances divergent thinking skills and improves group-based leadership abilities while also exposing participants to innovative methods of managing their work-life harmonies in ways that include increased time spent in nature.

In 2021-2022, we are offering four different day-long team leadership training sessions that will take place in the Santa Cruz Mountains, the Santa Clara Valley foothills, the vineyards and trails along Monte Bello Ridge, and the Pacific coastline of San Mateo County.

For details on the four locations where these training sessions are offered, please visit the Locations Page.

Please visit the Gear Page for recommended suggestions on what to bring to be prepared well for the outdoor component of each session.

We also offer an intensive, retreat-style workshop that will take place in 2021-2022 in the Anderson Valley of Mendocino County, California. For further information and pricing, please visit our Workshop Page.
