that creates impactful change.

Empirical research in the field of leadership development and general management shows that many development programs that are set in a typical conference-room settings tend to fail in terms of achieving long term effects. In contrast, our approach is based on experiential development that offer profound, fast and long lasting impact. This approach relies on the following principles:

We take a holistic approach. We focus on individual development rather than on specific management tools.

We combine experiences from the academic and corporate worlds. Our programs are evidence-based, which ensures profound and long-lasting results.

We attend to each individual and their specific situation. In effect, every participant gets a tailor-made program within the program.

We take leadership development outdoors. Nature creates a powerful context in which participants disconnect and regain clarity.

The how

Group dynamics play an important role in the hike. Interacting with others who go through similar experiences like yours is a source of feedback and support during the hike. A set of exercises and activities is integrated into each day of the hike.

Each participant receives extensive personal coaching throughout the hike. This tool drives deep reflection and serves as a source for ongoing feedback. Our coaches will help you to gain clarity about your current situation and the path forward.
Many participants join the hike because they feel “stuck” in behaviors, interactions and patterns that are difficult to breakaway with. The hike provides feedback, guidance and space to allow you to experiment with and experience new behaviors, feelings and attitudes.
The natural, mountainous environment and the physical activity that characterises the hike are impactful tools that help to cancel external noise and increase openness and self-reflection. Furthermore, the intense physical challenges that you will face in this hike will reveal your strengths and weaknesses and allow you to test alternative behaviors.
