The program also includes three self-discovery activities foster long-term skills development:

“I went into Odyssey not knowing what to expect, but fearing the focus might be on corporate/professional rah-rah self-congratulation (like so many YouTube videos out there). What I found could not have been more different. The amount of self-reflection and contemplation was something I hadn't had the time/desire/motivation/guidance to do in over 15 years. I am thankful for that opportunity and feel I have many more skills now to successfully lead myself and others."
– Timothy White, Project Director, Sanborn | Head & Associates, Inc.
