A DEEPER MOTIVATION FOR SAFETY & RISK MANAGEMENT IN THE WILDERNESS
WE NEED MORE SHEPHERD-LIKE OUTDOOR LEADERS WHO AREN’T SELF-SERVING GURUS, BUT APPROACH RISK MANAGEMENT FROM A DEEPER MOTIVATION

I have three stories to illustrate this point: 1. A story from guiding a group of CEOs from the Young President’s Organization, 2. A story from the Prophet Jeremiah, and 3. An unforgettable moment between Jesus Christ and his Disciple Peter.
