Draw deep inspiration from the natural world and find your authentic voice, innate wisdom, natural leadership skills, and personal way of being a leader. The world can’t wait any longer; it needs you in your brilliance now!

“This program supported me in my quest to become rooted as a leader. I appreciated seeing strength and vulnerability in the trainers. During one of the forest sessions it was powerful to explore aspects of my inner self in this safe container. The forest provides one of the best settings to recreate or strengthen my personal foundation. From majestic creations to the smallest details, it helped me to focus, to re-orient, and to heal. Despite being outdoors it created a discrete and safe ‘room’ where conversations suddenly were more open and honest compared to the confines normally provided by the office environment.” – Major B. Andersen, Air Force Pilot, Denmark
