Jeff Appelquist with Blue Knight Leadership and renowned polar explorer Will Steger are piloting an exciting new leadership development program based upon the hard-won lessons that Will took away from his epic polar expeditions.

Why did Will Steger forgo the easy path and choose a hard life of exploration? How did he plan and make decisions? How did he lead diverse teams of people through sometimes brutal conditions? How did he deal with chaos, challenge, and change? How did he persevere and overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles?

Commencing in Summer 2025, Will and Jeff will co-facilitate an unforgettable three-day experiential learning program at the Steger Center. Participants will have ample time to commune with nature and enjoy the exquisite scenery throughout the program.To express interest in this program, email
