LEADERSHIP • Leadership is sometimes appointed, elected, or just naturally given and assumed. Leadership can be exhibited by loud commands, softly spoken suggestions, shared participation, or no actions at all. A COPE Course provides numerous opportunities for leadership to be displayed and challenged. Learning the skills of leadership is one of the anticipated outcomes of Project COPE.
PROBLEM SOLVING • Problem Solving is done by the group and individual participants at each element. The group or individual then has the opportunity to test its solutions and evaluate the results.
TEAMWORK • Teamwork is the key to everything on a COPE Course. By using teamwork the group achieves a successful (and sometime unsuccessful) conclusion to a variety of problems. During the period in which a group is on the course, it will become abundantly clear that no individual can "do it" alone, it requires a complete group effort
DECISION MAKING • Decision Making requires the group to develop a solution, think through the probable results, and evaluate the results in terms of the resources available and required. Several possible solutions can be evaluated until the decision is made as to which is the best solution.
TRUST • Trust in the instructors, the safety of the course, each other, and themselves must be developed to successfully solve difficult tasks. Trust will be challenged many times while during a COPE experience.
SELF-ESTEEM • Self-Esteem is developed by successfully accomplishing a task as set forth by the instructor. This happens both on an individual and team basis.
COMMUNICATION • Communication is important to any group attempting to accomplish a difficult task. A tremendous amount of communication is exhibited in many ways on a COPE Course.
