Look at what we’ve been working on!
It was a year ago that Courageous Thinking created a blog to Spotlight Katie Pettibone. Katie was in the Middle East coaching young Omani women to sail and then race in the grueling 1200 mile Sailing Arabia the Tour. Young women who had never been in a gym learned to compete against men in offshore sailing. These young women’s lives were changed, they discovered greater potential for who they could be and they became leaders and role models for thousands of other young women. Katie and I knew we had to do something more to create opportunities through sports for women to develop into their full potential. We know that when women are elevated, the whole world wins.
So, we’ve spent the last year creating Rising Tide Leadership Institute.
At RTLI we believe that there is a direct correlation between the skill development required to successfully compete in high-technology sports and the skill development needed to lead and succeed in the global economy. We have built a unique global model for inspiring and equipping women leaders to compete in the global economy. Katie just landed in Kuwait to rejoin Dee Caffari and the young Omani women to continue their journey. The Oman Sail women’s team will be competing in the Sailing Arabia the Tour 2013 starting February 12- 26th.
Come learn about the Rising Tide Leadership Institute and follow Katie, Dee and the Omani women’s adventure along the Arabian Coast.
This is going to be a blast!
