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 go inside and outside. 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? Which are critical life-experiences? How do they impact me? Do I still like who I am? On what yes, on what not? What is authentic and what is conditioning? How does it all show in my work-life, my private-life? In the ambition I have. The inspiration I seek. The path I take. All geared to reset my bearings and grow my inner comfort.

Theme and levels
The theme of this journey is ‘Wild Reset’. We will be off the grid, stripped of unnatural stimuli and the everyday entertainment. We leave telephones and watches behind – where we are is anyhow no receipt. Meanwhile we create a setting to let go of the issues of the day during which we sometimes forget that we are a creature of nature and not a technologically manufactured robot. 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 6-8 participants and 3 guides. Most of us have at least reached mid- life or earned our portion of grey hair. 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. For living it to the fullest. We are all open for reflection, for sharing, for mutual support and for the challenge our ego may get. Read more about the guides in the booklet.
