My son, Ben, took a break from his job as an Outward Bound guide to share a Seven Fs golf trip with me. What a luxury!
In the fall of 2008, our son Ben left for college and never really came back. This weekend, he and I reunited over a father and son Seven Fs bonanza – a golfing trip during the peak of autumn colors in Northern Minnesota. We could have flown to Scotland and not have afforded such a luxurious experience as golfing together at The Legend and Quarry golf courses at Giant’s Ridge, Minnesota.
Today, Ben makes his living primarily as an Outward Bound Guide. The process he uses to inspire youth is very similar to the coaching processes we use to produce insight in leaders. We enjoy “talking shop” and dreaming about the day when we will provide experience learning retreats for adult leaders.
