Growing your Leadership by growing your Robustness & Resilience
How are the bearings of my compass? How well can I hold on to my course? How stable am I on a slippery track? How much adversity can I deal with? When my legs burn, my breath screams? I have said yes and have the ambition to make it! But how robust and resilient am I? Will/do/can I stand the heat of the climb, the wetness of pouring rain?
You’re invited to join us on an outdoor track in remote and rewarding territory. To explore internally as well as externally. Our steps will lead us into in one of the most rugged places of Europe: the Swedish wilderness area of Sarek National Park. In this the land of the semi nomadic Sami population we pass glaciers and imposing mountains, wade through glacial rivers and trek through alpine tundra over ancient reindeer trails. With a bit of luck we spot a herd of these characterful strong four-legged animals: the local people still live a traditional life here based on the seasonal migration of their reindeer. But reindeer are certainly not the only wild animals to be found in the park. The area is also home to brown bears, lynx, the wolverine and Europe’s largest moose species. The track will be as real as it will be metaphorical. Because we will be talking whilst walking.
Together we will reflect upon ourselves, on who each of us is, or -better said- who we have become. We will support each other in asking ourselves profound questions: Why do I (not) do what I (not want) to do? How have I become who I am today? What are my critical life-experiences? How do they impact me? Do I still like who I am (which aspects yes, and which aspects no)? What about me is authentic and what is conditioned? How does it all show in my work-life and in my private-life? In the ambition I have, the inspiration I seek, the path I choose to take. This journey is geared to help reset your bearings and grow you inner awareness.

Theme and levels
The theme of this journey is ‘Leadership Reset’. You are invited to reflect on your leadership and use nature as a metaphor and source of inspiration. We will be off the grid, away from known structures, away from home, from our bed, our shower, from our habits, away from the everyday entertainment. We leave telephones and watches behind – where we are is anyhow no reception (we’re connected to home by an emergency – satellite phone). Meanwhile we create a setting to let go of the issues of the day. We use the simplicity of the outdoors and the forces of nature as a driver for a reset. Every day will be filled with new insights from cruising the land, from challenging questions, from reflecting inside, from our continued discussions. Not your usual work week or ‘day-in-the-office’.
The most important entry requirement for this trip is a healthy body, an open attitude and a bit of the character. But the days are intensive and physical. Not only do we move every day, we also run the outdoor camp together. Along the way things are simple and still hard work. A day trip contains minimal 15 kilometers and can also increase in the number of altimeters. The terrain can be heavy and sometimes impassable and moving could be slow. In addition, the weather in Sarek is unpredictable and it can rain a lot. We could even get snow. In combination with the lack of shelter and a heavy load in the backpack, participation in this trip requires a solid fitness level. Experience with (wild) camping or familiarity with Arctic terrain is not necessary. We guide you through this raw and untouched arctic landscape and provide you with the skills necessary to move self sufficient and comfortably through the environment. Trust the process.
On participation we will do a twofold intake, whereby we will focus on your goal & intention and secondly the gear & preparations.
‘We’ are a group of 4-6 participants and 3 guides. Participants are executives, entrepreneurs and people with aspirations.. All of us have dreams and bruises. The guides facilitate the journey across the mountains as much as the inner journey. What we all have in common is a longing for inspiration in our lives and deeper self-awareness. For living life to the fullest. We are all open for reflection, for sharing, for mutual support and for challenging our ego. We long to take that next step in self-leadership to be a force for positive change in our circles at work and at home. Read more about the guides in the booklet.
