About the authors

Russ and Rusty help run the show at Winshape Teams, an organization helping teams thrive since 1991.


Rusty Chadwick

Rusty’s passion for transformational experiences was ignited during his time as a guide and head wrangler at two premier guest ranches in Colorado after college. After four years out West, he transitioned to WinShape Teams, where he has spent nearly a decade creating second-mile guest experiences and developing programming for teams and leaders. Today, Rusty’s role as Director for WinShape Teams has him pointing the team back toward its purpose and unique essentials, and providing leadership and support to each department. It’s here that he gets to exercise the skills he loves most by facilitating journeys for others.
