Effective leadership
is rooted leadership

It happens outside

Rooted leadership?

We believe that your organization needs rooted leaders. People who dare to be themselves and act from there. These uncertain times cannot be managed from the top-down; in orde to be successful, your organization needs people who proactively lead change and inspire others by being themselves.

We are convinced that being yourself and acting from there is precisely what contributes to a better world – even outside of your organization. That may sound big, but it starts very small: here and now, for yourself, your colleagues and the people around you.

We help you stand firm and make a positive impact: on your own life and the lives of others. 

To achieve that, we go outside. Because it happens outside.

We offer in-company leadership programs that last. Check out our solutions to your leadership challenge.

It happens outside

We help you reconnect with nature. Without distraction and with sincere attention, nature brings us closer to ourselves every time. Being in the outdoors strengthens our physical en mental basis. We live more in the moment, experience more clarity in decision making, a stronger sense of direction and more connection to everything around us.


Since I have joined the program I am more able to recognize the needs of others and I am aware of the behavior that is needed from my position in the organization. The facilitators take great care of individuals learning goals. without losing track of the group. For the group it feels that we are both working on ourselves and the organization.

It is a great development journey where all participants are challenged to enhance their impact on the organization and our clients. Because of the active feedback of the coaches towards me as a director, we can actively adapt our way of working to best support the effectiveness of our leaders.

I left the forest with a postcard that I still have on my desk. It inspired me so much, that I can now speak openly about the plans and dreams that I have - I have much more confidence. Also, I feel more connected to the group I have spent the program with.

Our approach

At Expedition Good Life we do not go on a bootcamp or survive in the wild. We use nature as a catalyst for personal & leadership development, in a safe environment. We offer an in-company leadership program, a 2-day introduction into living & working in harmony with nature and a recurring retreat in the Belgian Ardennes.

Our facilitators

Our coaches know a great deal about nature as well as people. During our programs, we spend time in the outdoors to reflect, talk and do impactull exercises. Many of these exercises start with inspiration from ancient nature traditions, as well as systemic work and stoic philosophy. More about our coaches and our approach can be found here.
