Extraordinary Endurance: Leadership Lessons from the Long RoadCOURSE ID: EXENDURE

When the prospects are daunting, the pain is immediate and the goal far away, endurance can be the most valuable leadership quality. If you’re confronting a challenge and wondering “How will I ever get through this?”, then this course is designed for you. Taught by two instructors who have crossed the country (one on foot and one on a bicycle), the course taps both their experience and their research into energy, endurance, leadership — and tackling tough tasks.

Frank Ryan, CPA and Greg Conderacci are two of BLI’s most popular instructors. Frank, a retired USMC Colonel, walked from San Diego to Ocean City, MD. Greg, an ultra-distance bike racer, rode from Seattle to Williamsburg, VA. Both raised money for their favorite charities along the way. Both have many years of experience in leading teams through difficult times.
