The Professional Enrichment and Knowledge (PEAK) Navigator program is designed for mountain resort leaders who have direct reports (typically manager-level or above) and are looking to make a bigger impact at their resort. The PEAK Navigator program enables participants to see the behaviors they use most often in their leadership role, measuring those specific behaviors that create a culture of high engagement and performance.
