Lewis & Clark


Jeff Appelquist, along with his colleague Jack Uldrich (jackuldrich.com), facilitates an incredible experience based on the amazing journey of Lewis & Clark and their Corps of Discovery. Participants will prepare by reading Jack Uldrich’s book Into the Unknown: Leadership Lessons from Lewis & Clark’s Daring Westward Expedition. This epic tale – the 19th century equivalent of putting a man on the moon – still resonates today. It has been called The American Odyssey.

Participants fly into Great Falls, Montana and the meeting begins the next morning. The theme of Day One is “Imagining a Different Future,” and highlights include a visit to the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center and dinner at the world-famous C.M. Russell Museum. On Day Two, our focus is on “Portaging into the Unknown,” and we take in nature’s majestic scenes with a boat ride on the Missouri River at the Gates of the Rocky Mountains, along the very path that the Corps of Discovery traveled. On the way back to Great Falls, we see the panoramic views from the First People’s Buffalo Jump. The theme for Day Three is “Leaving a Lasting Legacy,” and we visit Ryan’s Dam, location of the mighty Great Falls.
