You will join us in Cleveland and step aboard Unicorn to begin your shared-learning experience with 5 other professional women. In the context of this unique and highly relevant learning laboratory, you will have opportunities for self-exploration and group interaction as you meet the challenges of strategy-setting, leadership problem solving, decision-making and authentic teamwork. Unicorn's professional crew teach you everything you need to know about sailing a tall ship.

During your 3-day journey, the group takes the principles and skills that have been processed in "thoughts and language" throughout their business career and puts them to immediate, observable action by participating in the navigation and maneuvering of a traditionally rigged, yet well appointed Tallship. The BeamPines Psychologist will facilitate a number of exercises, download and feedback sessions throughout your journey to connect the dots between your shipboard experience and how it translates to your professional and personal life.

One month prior to boarding Tallship Unicorn your Chart Your Course™ begins with a customized Executive Assessment, which helps you tap into your core skills, traits and competencies as an executive and a person. The assessment raises awareness and serves as the foundation for personal decisions, goal-setting and development work. It combines anecdotal feedback with data from a battery of personality and psychological assessments.
