About

Welcome to our Blog.

I would like to introduce ourselves to you.  Dave Hanna has had an interesting career.  He received his MOB from Brigham Young University then spent the next 16 years with Procter & Gamble working in many different divisions in many diverse locations.  He helped develop and organize the first globalization efforts of the European brands in the early 1980’s. It was at this time that the “Hanna Model” for organization design and diagnosis was also developed. The late 1989’s he authored “Designing High Performance Organizations”. During the 1990’s he was a senior consultant for the Covey Leadership Center. While working with the outstanding material of Dr. Covey and “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” he developed his thoughts of organizational leadership.  He wrote “Leadership For the Ages” in 1999.  We still have several copies in the garage.  After again, working for a short time in Europe, Dave joined the RBL group as a principle.  Dave is now writing  the book “?????”.

Charlee just happens to be married to Dave for the last 39 years.  I received my BS in nursing from Brigham Young University then moved with my husband to several places in the States and Europe.  While I never made a big career of nursing, the education was invaluable and taught me to think about systems and leadership. In 1998 I was able to raft the Grand Canyon on a private trip for 16 days and found my passion.  I love the river and the ability to teach on the river.  In 1999 we started Confluence Rafting Expeditions in Missoula (Seeley Lake) Montana. I ran the business because Dave was busy else where.  We ran team building/leadership programs and public raft trip for 10 years.

IN 2009 we moved from Montana back to our home in Utah to be closer to Dave’s work.  This has given me an opportunity to concentrate entirely on my love for leadership and team development and being able to  offer these programs in an adventure setting on the river.  I am also developing my model of leadership which I hope to share soon.

As a footnote we would like to add that we have five children all who are grown, three horses, and a variety of cats who seem to attach themselves to us without asking.  We have two and one half acres of weeds which we fight with a vengeance, a spring of water and not enough time. Life is pretty good.  We hope you will enjoy our Blog. Remember a bad day on the river is better than a good day in the office.
