Not your typical leadership coaching.  At Cairn Leadership Strategies we focus on young leaders at the top of their organization or driven to get there as well as professional women striving to lead authentically. We create amazing outdoor adventures and help you translate them into meaningful steps toward becoming the leader, person or team you strive to be in a sustainable and life fulfilling way.  No conference rooms, no trust falls, zero Powerpoint, no new diagnostic surveys.  Expect real challenge, real fun, real wild, real consequences- real results!

Thanks for running such an enjoyable, funny, engaging and fact filled event. I recently read “Deep Survival” by Lawrence Gonzales. It was great to get first hand info from you on your experiences. (I loved the props!).

The best part of my experience with Cairn Leadership Strategies was
interacting with their cadre, who were committed to providing the best
experience possible...  I really liked the duality of high level group
discussions on the latest research and theory behind stress coupled
with direct, real world experience of climbing rock.
