Living for the Greater Good

Dreaming Big




The CORE VALUES are surprisingly well  integrated by Keith MacMurdie into every aspect of this unique outdoor, real-time education:

Just over six years ago Keith created True North Adventures Outdoor Education from a dream to a functioning, healthy reality.  His desire was to demonstrate what can result when employees are  introduced to the four core values, through TNAOE  in the the most impartial, automatic feedback classroom of all . . . NATURE . . . 93560009.  Successful graduates can go on to lead well, creating a healthy, expanding business culture.

True World Group / True World Foods has recognized the quality and usefulness of True North’s Outdoor Education’s experiential training program and has been sending several teams from their nationwide operation.  They believe this will  result in  benefits for the  individual, those whom they lead and serve, the company’s business culture and ultimately . . .  society’s well being.

The Truth About Leadership: The No-fads, to the Heart-of-the-Matter Facts You Need to Know

Publisher’s Summary

In these turbulent times, when the very foundations of organizations and societies are being shaken, leaders need to move beyond the pessimistic predictions, the trendy fads, and the simplistic solutions. They need to turn to what’s real and what’s proven, to understand what the evidence tells us about how exemplary leaders get extraordinary things done. This is the imperative that best-selling, award-winning authors James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner have undertaken in their engaging, personal, and bold new audiobook, The Truth About Leadership.

    I can’t think of a better place than the mountains of Montana to solidify your core values and clarify your path forward. I was on a program that TNAOE ran in the Arizona high-desert wilderness that was excellent!

        It gets even better. In July I spent 5 days leading a team of 12 men through snow fields and to mountain peaks in Montana’s Spanish Peaks Wilderness area. Unbelievably beautiful and moving!
