Do you want to grow in your career but don’t know where to start? Would it help to meet others in the outdoor industry who feel the same as you? Hesitant to sign up for another leadership course? We get it.
We’ve partnered with OIA and designed The Leadership Lab, a curated and interactive program that puts a twist on leadership growth. Our topics are what’s important to you. We meet you where you’re at. Also, we have a good time doing what we do.
Join us for a leadership experience that isn’t like the others.
You don’t meet people when all you can do is listen. The thing is, without building relationships, leadership development doesn’t work. We want you to walk away with more than a set of notes. We want you to walk away with lifelong connections.
In three big ways, The Leadership Lab is built to reflect what we value most.
One of the biggest benefits of professional development is the relationships you make. Each of our workshops is limited to twelve of you. By only working with small groups, you’ll get the chance to know and to learn from everyone else.
It’s tough getting to know someone who lives across the country. It can feel even tougher to create connections with them. By grouping everyone regionally, you can actually meet for coffee or take some turns together outside of our virtual workshops.
A 6-month virtual professional development program where we talk about what matters most to you.

This program is for, but not limited to, mid-career professionals looking to grow their careers in the outdoor space. If you have a few years under your belt, want to grow your leadership skills, and are excited to meet others who are in the same place, we’d love for you to join!
We’ll be running 6-month programs twice per year: the first will begin in mid-June and run through mid-November 2021. The next sessions will begin mid-January through mid-June 2022.
The regions will be determined after registration opens. As participants register, they’ll be put into regional groups with others in the same area. For example, as registrations come in from folks in and around Seattle, Denver, the Bay Area, the Northeast, they’ll be placed in those groups. The whole intent is to make it easy for everyone to actually do stuff together in person.
The process should take 1-2 weeks. First, you’ll fill out a short form that will include where you work. We’ll then confirm your company’s or your organization’s OIA membership before sending you a link to pay for the program.
You know what they say: you get out of these things what you put into them. That said, we’ll have monthly 90-minute virtual calls with your regional group, and we’ll send you an email with resources between those calls with exercises to consider. Monthly, you should dedicate at least a few hours to begin getting value from the program.
In one word, yes. Time management is up to you of course, but this program isn’t built to add extra stress and complication to your life. It’s actually built to provide support (both professionally and personally) and to help you balance your career.
Registration will be open from April 15th through May 31st, 2021.
The experience is 6-months long. It includes six workshops every month and an optional celebration with all regional groups the month following the end of the program.
We believe in the power of the cohort and the magic that comes along with sharing an experience from beginning to end. Therefore, at this time we’re not allowing individuals to join specific workshops. Of course, we understand life happens. If there’s a circumstance that comes up which prevents you from completing the program, we’re happy to work with you.
If you need to cancel your registration for any reason, we’re happy to refund you in full up to one week before the first workshop. If something comes up during the program, we’ll work with you to come up with a solution.
We’re in the business of building and empowering future leaders. Investing in your employee’s leadership development will serve to strengthen your business.
The Leadership Lab is $800 for the 6-month program if your company is an OIA member and $1000 for non-OIA member companies. Find out more about OIA membership here!
We’ll have monthly 90-minute virtual group calls. Between each of these calls, we’ll send the participants emails with resources and exercises. Monthly, each person should dedicate at least a few hours to get value from the program. Of course, this time will be helping them become better leaders for you!
Sendline came from wanting to create professional development opportunities that are, well, cool. Where cool means useful, impactful, and actually fun. As mid-career professionals, we asked ourselves what would we want to be a part of and what would really help us. We designed a low-polish, straightforward, and genuine alternative to leadership development centered around workshops, retreats, and outdoor events. We call it, simply, ‘Leadership in disguise.’
A Windrose, also known as a Compass Rose, is the part of the compass responsible for directing true north. At the most simplistic level, that represents much of the work I do to support groups and organizations: aligning on purpose, building unified teams, establishing clear and open communication, collaborating through conflict, and prioritizing peer accountability. I fully believe organizations have the greatest chance for success when they can be in authentic unison and action on their true north.
