Explorers Bootcamp is an intensive training weekend for those who want to exceed themselves and enhance their leadership and management skills.
Led by the Portuguese Navy Marine Corps, participants will roll up their sleeves and get their hands-dirty at several workshops on advanced people skills and negotiation tasks.
The Explorers Bootcamp is a program on Leadership and Motivation for entrepreneurs at the School of Leadership Marine Navy in Valley Zebro, where participants attend an intensive course over a residential weekend.
All activities are monitored by experienced trainers from the Marine Corps who lead participants on a set of exercises whose ultimate goal is to develop their leadership and motivation skills in an environment of some psychological pressure (non-physical) and in the proper context on the Marine Corps Training School, 45 minutes South of Lisbon .
It seeks to develop the potential of the participants as leaders, and all activities are safe and accessible to anyone in normal physical condition.
Participants are also expected to attend the briefing session and the leadership discussion panel with several CEOs from leading Portuguese IT companies. The aim of this unique course is to help participants become better prepared for their development as founders and leaders of startup projects.
Get ready to explore, get dirty, rough and fully motivated!
Charles Philips, the CEO of the $3 billion New York based enterprise software company, explains in this video the most important thing he learned in the Marine Corps.
