Army Vet Tom Clark (FTMBA’16) spent spring break in the British Virgin Islands participating in the capstone sailing exercise for the Goizueta Advanced Leadership Academy (GALA.)  Five teams of students competed in a week long regatta during which team members rotated through positions on the boat.  In addition to learning to sail, navigating unfamiliar waters and dealing with a constant stream of ambiguous challenges, participants practiced implementing the leadership and teamwork techniques discussed throughout the semester and deliberately reviewed their daily performance through the After Action Review process.
