The Nature Place is a comfortable mountain retreat and conference center located on a 6,000 acre privately owned ranch, one hour west of Colorado Springs. Visit www.thenatureplace.net for more information. Sessions 2 and 3 will be virtual. These sessions include both individual participation and group/team work. The dates and assignments are strategically spaced to allow participants to apply what they have learned and to return to the team with stories of success and insightful questions, further customizing the program as it progresses. The final session, which occurs on site, includes a graduation ceremony where supervisors and leadership teams are invited to attend.
