Mast Raising Leadership Workshop

The Mast Raising Leadership Workshop is a completely unique approach to teamwork. Utilizing the Sea School's philosophy of experiential learning, participants learn to work together and follow commands in silence to make complicated knots and to raise a mast. The best part of this program is that the entire goal is a mystery and the sense of purpose is a discovery that the crewmembers unfold together. The "a-ha" moment happens when the group sees the exciting results of their teamwork. At this point we begin to use verbal commands to keep the mast upright and explore the effectiveness of both working together in silence and when talking. Once each skill is taught, the Sea School facilitators transfer leadership to the participants and allowspace for them to teach and command each other while maintaining group safety.
