 Instructor Bio:

Duane Hada brings a unique, aesthetic appreciation to the sport of angling. Duane credits his life-long passion as artist and angler to being raised close to nature in the rural Ozarks’ Buffalo River country. Growing up surrounded by some of God’s greatest handiwork fuels the creative inspiration that has blended beautifully into a career as both angler and artist. When asked about his vocation, he’ll quickly tell you some days he’s an artist who guides, and some days he’s a guide who paints. Either way, his clients cherish another memory of a great day spent on the water. Duane’s recognition as both artist and angler has been honored with numerous awards and accolades, locally as well as nationally. His art has graced trout stamp designs, wildlife calendars, trout regulation manuals, and Nature Centers. A very prolific artist, Duane’s originals adorn banks, famous trout and saltwater lodges, as well as the Governor’s mansion special selection.

His highly sought after art has helped raise funds for FFF, Trout Unlimited, The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, St. Jude’s Hooked on a Cure, and numerous other conservation groups and organizations. He is the illustrator for Ozark Trout Tales, Home Waters, and created the popular 2005 Arkansas Game & Fish Foundation license plate with a White River rainbow trout scene. His angling peers have honored him with the first fly-rod Master Angler Award from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission in 1989. He received the Silver Medal for the coaching the US Youth fly fishing team in the FIPS Mouche International Fly Fishing Competition in Wales. His art and fly fishing has allowed him to travel and experience many of the great angling destinations of the world. Duane’s clients are often eager to have their outdoor adventures memorialized by him. His sketches, acrylics or watercolors frequently become prize possessions as souvenirs for his angling friends. Upon receiving his recently finished original, one client stated, “I have an original piece of art that will forever refresh that special day on the river.  It’s like having a modern day Winslow Homer”.

5 Dysfunctions of a Team

$249

with Kim Worlow

Calendar Mar 1, 2023 at 8:30 am

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team outlines the root causes of politics and dysfunction on the teams where you work and the keys to overcoming them. Counter to conventional wisdom, the causes of dysfunction are both identifiable and curable. However, they don't die easily. Making a team functional and cohesive requires levels of courage and discipline that many groups cannot seem to muster. The workshop is based on the book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni.

The objectives of the workshop: 

  • Help teams make substantial progress in working together as a team
  • Have a deeper understanding of the contributions of each team member
  • Develop strategies to help the team overcome each of the five dysfunctions
