This book is a synopsis of a study designed to fill a gap in the body of knowledge related to selecting and training outdoor leaders for high adventure outdoor pursuits. The findings have direct application to the self-assessment of aspiring leaders, to the selection of outdoor staff, and to the development of training manuals. Furthermore, the ideas generated from the study may lend themselves to the resolution of the ubiquitous problem of outdoor leadership certification.
