Develop Your Skills

Step back from your daily routines and clear your mind in the seclusion of the wilds. Let go what you have created and achieved, and get aware of what you actually feel drawn to. The leadership training is an exceptional opportunity to clarify your personal mission and to develop your leadership skills.

A Wilderness Quest

at the Core of the Leadership Training

At the core of the leadership training there is a week-long wilderness quest in the pristine nature of Norway. Immerse in the wilds while walking in silence and during the humble practice of wilderness living. Engage with outer nature as well as with your true inner nature. Keep focus on your intentions, the questions of your life’s journey. Work carefully towards the heartpiece of the trail – a 36-hour solo you spend alone in the wilds, letting nature speak to you.

A professional facilitating team guides you through your journey. The quest is framed by a preceding intake interview and a foundation workshop, a subsequent integration workshop and a final coaching session. These additional elements will help you both prepare for the quest in the wilds and to integrate your insights into your life after the quest.

The Leadership Training gives you the unique opportunity to return to your essence, to empower yourself according to your natural gifts and so to develop your personal leadership skills.

The 7-day Wilderness Quest begins and ends at Oslo Airport, Norway.

On the day of arrival the group meets at noon in the arrival hall. A transfer (Finnskogen: taxi van | Rondane: train + taxi van) takes the group to the accommodation for the first night. There the training program starts in the evening.
