After 4 years of organizing expeditions and backed-up by academic research, we can proudly summarize 5 reasons to go outside. Or as we like to say: it happens outside.
Disconnecting helps to focus
Immersion in nature can help you to disconnect from the distractions and stressors of everyday life and better focus on process of personal development.
Metaphors in nature are applicable to daily life
The natural environment can serve as a powerful metaphor for leadership challenges and opportunities, making it easier for you to understand and apply key leadership concepts.
Native knowledge is unique, refreshing and useful
Native knowledge, or the traditional wisdom and practices of indigenous peoples, can provide a unique perspective on leadership and decision-making that is often overlooked in more traditional leadership development programs.
Helping to understand the bigger picture
Engaging with nature and working with native knowledge can lead to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the interconnectedness of all things, which can be useful for developing empathy, compassion, decision making and other key leadership traits.
More trust in self and others
Being outdoors helps growing the trust in yourself – and thereby new opportunities for team building, fostering collaboration, and communication with your colleagues.
