Description: Outdoor leadership-it's more than just knowing which trail to take or how to read a map. Whether out on a day trip or a backcountry expedition, the successful outdoor leader takes on many roles at once-skilled communicator, expert decision maker, thorough planner-and must be as prepared as possible for any and every situation. In this essential new handbook, author Alex Kosseff fuses his own extensive leadership experience with that of acclaimed experts as he details the critical skills and concepts every outdoor leader needs to know. Building on the basic foundations of leadership, Kosseff explores such critical topics as effective decision-making, group dynamics, risk management, awareness and attitude, environmental impact, and more. Packed with expert advice, practical know-how, and real-life experiences, AMC Guide to Outdoor Leadership is a must-read for anyone committed to becoming a safe and effective leader, whether an aspiring guide, an educator, a club leader, or an adventurous parent.
