Example Expedition: in the Ardennes with Vattenfall

The Challenge

How do we help this team to take future career steps in their own hands?

This team had just gone through tough, uncertain, times. Team members needed time to reflect on the previous period. It was necessary to reconnect with each other on a different, non-work related, level in order to be able to move forward. Because of the upcoming reorganization, every team member needed time to figure out where they wanted to go, what their future professional step would look like.

The Solution

An expedition in The Ardennes, Belgium. During long hikes, various experienced based assignments were part of the program to discover:

  • who am I, what are my core qualities I can rely on?
  • Where do I really want to go next? 
  • How can I get there? What or who is going to help me with this?

Take-aways

The expedition was rated with an 8,3 (/10). Here’s what participants have learned:

  • I feel confident that every step I take from here, is a step in the right direction
  • I know now how valuable it is to step out of the daily rollercoaster from time to time. I found a lot of practical help to go and do ti
  • I know where I want to go with my career, and who can help me get there. I don’t need to do it on my own.

Example Expedition: into the forest with Hoogwegt Group

The Challenge

How do we build independent thinking and decision making of our leaders

This expedition was part of a leadership program. These leaders were learning new skills and focussed on their personal development. The Challenge however, was to really pull them more out of their comfort zone in order to help them discover who they really are as a leader: what is required of them, what they can rely on, how their behavior influences others. 

The solution

Well, what do you do with a group of ‘tough guys’ (only men) that like going outside? You hike through the rain, engaging in deep conversation, meditation combined with physical challenges. 

Take-aways

The expedition was rated with an 8,8 (/10). Here’s what participants have learned:

  • I now know that I can show my vulnerability. It’s ok to ‘not know’, that’s always better than being silent
  • I feel more confident that what I feel, is actually a good sign on how to move forward. Relying on my intuition is a new thing to me, but I am aware I need to use it.
