LEADERSHIP WILD RESET SCOTLAND
Min 4 max 6
Price in the booklet
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 the Scottish west-coast mountain wilderness. Over animal tracks, shitty ground, rocky sort-of-paths, ridges with steep sides. 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.
Participants are senior executives and (very) high potentials. What’s included?

Theme and levels
The theme of this journey is ‘Wild Reset’. We will be off the grid, stripped of unnatural stimuli and everyday entertainment. We will leave telephones and watches behind – there is no reception available along the trail anyway. We do this to create a setting to help you let go of day-to-day (work) issues.
We use the simplicity of the outdoors and the workings of nature as a driving force for a reset. Every day will be filled with new insights from our continued questions-reflections-discussions. Not your usual work week.
The most important entry requirement for this trip is a healthy body and an open attitude. An average to good fitness level is required for this outdoor journey. We will be hiking long hours with a serious backpack. Experience in mountain terrain is desirable but not mandatory. Experience with (wild) camping is a plus, but not necessary.
‘We’ are a group of 4-8 participants and 3 guides. Participants are senior leaders and high potentials. 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.
