We are here to unhide
people’s power.

Our approach draws from combining knowledge and experience from the academic and corporate worlds to create real change.

Our perspective

Peak Perspective wants people to find and go on their unique path. Leading themselves. We take people out in nature, where barriers and constraining patterns become easily visible, and where dreams and ambitions are uncovered. We’re here to unhide people’s power. 

Physical challenges help to overcome mental barriers and provide an excellent training environment. Peak Perspective’s main proposition involves multiple-day hikes, as both science and experience have proven that these provide the perfect combination of reflection, challenge and coaching opportunities. 

The result? Happy and balanced self-leading individuals, prospering in their personal and work lives. 

 

Our Perspective can be
best explained by sharing 7
principles on which our hikes

1. Self-leadership is key to a fulfilling life
Self-leadership means taking responsibility for your own life. It is about understanding who you are, what triggers and motivates you, and how you intentionally guide yourself. You can choose to lead your own life, or have it led by others. You are not a victim of your life. Take the lead.
2. Leading happens in all areas of life
Leading is happening in all areas of life, not solely at work. Managing happens at work. Leading happens in life. Managing refers to your function and position at work. Leading refers to your attitude and behaviour. Some positions make you a manager. You make yourself a leader. Leadership is not a position but an attitude towards life.
3. Successful leadership requires balance
People often discover through hard experience that true success requires a careful combination of all the elements of their lives (work, home, off time). Balanced leaders help companies thrive. Research shows that the leader's mood and related behaviors have enormous effects on bottom-line performance.
4. Nature helps to disconnect, reflect and identify unhelpful patterns
Being in nature helps to reflect and gain new perspectives. While we disconnect from the outside world we create time to connect with ourselves. Being in a different environment helps to open up. There are no set structures, roles, and expectations. It opens up the space to reflect and identify barriers to change, and work with old and unhelpful patterns.
5. Hiking creates a physical connection and offers experiential learning
Real life is happening on the mountain: stress, exhaustion, frustration, patience. Strengthened by physical experiences and weather conditions, there is no need for role-playing. Everything is happening naturally. You can hide in a room, as counter-intuitive as this sounds. You can’t hide in nature.
6. Reconnecting head & heart helps to identify root causes
Too often, we only focus on the mental aspects of change. Connecting mental, physical and emotional elements brings us back to the core. Instead of focusing on high-level leadership models we try to identify root causes for unhelpful patterns and behavior. We get down to the operating level where old limiting beliefs and survival mechanisms lie.
7. Everyone has their own path waiting to be uncovered
Everyone has their own set of capabilities and dreams. Uncovering them and going after them is what we’re motivating people to do. We make sure people reconnect with themselves, the person behind protective shields or (formal) roles. With our hikes and programs, we enable people to find and go on their own individual path.

Become a better leader

Discover your identity

Guide others

Tool 1: Using the power of the group to accelerate change

Group dynamics play an important role. Interacting with others, learning from each other, and creating a shared commitment. The interaction is a source of feedback and support during the hike. A set of exercises and activities is integrated into each day of the hike.

Tool 3: Experimentation with new behaviors

Many participants join the hike because they feel “stuck” in behaviors, interactions and patterns that are difficult to break away from. The hike provides feedback, guidance and space to allow you to experiment with and experience new behaviors, feelings and attitudes.

Tool 2: Coaching to discover personal growth opportunities

Each participant receives extensive 1:1 coaching throughout the hike. Driving deep reflection and serving as a source of ongoing feedback. Our coaches will help you to gain clarity about your current situation and the path forward.

Tool 4: Physical challenge to force movement and progress

The mountainous environment helps to cancel external noise and increase openness and self-reflection. Furthermore, the intense physical challenges will reveal your strengths and weaknesses and allow you to change your response to impulses.

4 tools in unhiding people

People have many different roles and responsibilities, it is easy to lose sight of one’s own dreams and ambitions. Peak Perspective offers programs that support people to regain clarity, discover and draft their own path and gain self-confidence. 

How does the unhiding take place? Simply hiking and talking isn’t enough to get people to unhide and grow. Peak Perspective uses several tools in their approach. 

 

General setup of our hikes

Day 1

Mapping where you are
This day is focused on mapping your current situation, and how you got there. What is your current state of mind? What situations and relationships shaped and formed you? It is about identifying the key challenges that you would like to explore. In addition, this day is dedicated to creating a space of trust, openness, reflection and intimacy.
Day 2

Envisioning your path ahead
On this day the focus is your future self and the person you aspire to be. Shifting the view from the present to the desired future. Research on vision setting, suggest that this is not only relevant for future progress and success, but also fosters greater resilience towards dealing with present difficulties.
Day 3

Bridging the gap
There are many factors that can hold us back from reaching our goals, but also elements that can support us. During the third day we focus on bridging the gap from the current towards the future self. What resources do I already have? What more do I need? What relationships can help me? We start defining concrete goals and actions.
Day 4

The action plan
The last day of the hike is focused on integrating the learnings from the past days. You will take a first step towards realizing your goals in the form of a vision statement. A speech held in front of the group. Sharing your personal commitment with others. This day is about taking the hike back into your daily life and making it happen.
