Senior leaders work in space of high demands. Further this, things shift and change fast, and the constant uncertainty is taxing. Have you reached a point where you know that you need to approach the way that you lead your life differently? Would it be good to shift from hyper focus, to regaining a broad considered perspective? Would it be good to intentionally step out of your day-to-day setting, and have the luxury of time for learning, introspection and reframing?
Now imagine being able to do this against the backdrop wilderness in the Greater Kruger National Park. If this sounds intriguing, welcome to our "Ecological Leadership" Retreat.
What is it?
The intra and inter-dependent dynamic balance that exists in nature offers meaningful insights for business leaders. This five-day guided safari hike is designed as an immersive and transformative journey. The process is focused on enhancing your leadership skills, using ecologic as the foundation of your decision-making, enhancing your observational skills to embrace diversity, nurturing relationships to ensure sustainability, developing emotional resilience and experiencing uncertainty as part of an unfolding process.
The program combines both an experiential and theoretical framework, and has been carefully designed to bring exactly the right blend of adventure, physical challenge, spiritual and mental stimulation. It is facilitated by Dr Ken Jennings [internationally respected counselling psychologist and executive coach] and Lutz Otto [founder of Spirited Adventures and Consulting].
What will my days be like?
Metaphorically, our journey in true Big 5 wilderness, mirrors navigating the uncertain territory the business world exists in. Days will start early with group discussions, followed by a hike to a new campsite, not knowing what we will see or encounter, in the coolness of morning. You will find both wonder and perspective spending at least one of the nights sleeping under the magnificent canopy of the southern stars. Group sessions will provide deep and powerful insights into your leadership, as well as life, journey. There may be times when we get uncomfortable, which will offer insightful learning opportunities. We will encourage conversations to flow naturally depending on what is being experienced and we will take time to reflect while on the walks.
How will it change me?
The benefits of being in nature have been widely studied and are many. Now add to these the additional benefits of working with a highly skilled facilitation team and a group of intentional like-minded individuals, facing similar challenges, and you are guaranteed to leave the process not only thinking differently but with a new sense of purpose and direction.

"Wild places have an incredible power to inspire, influence and help shape who we continue to become. Much like the principle of the “the mirror and a glass”, their energy allows us to reflect on the memory of our journey and the vision of where we want to go, and why" Lutz Otto
