What is a Leadership Immersion?

Leadership Immersions provide rich, powerful and long-lasting experiences for leaders to go deep with personal and collective inquiries in well-held psychologically-safe yet deep spaces. This leads them to consider vital questions around their own and their organisations purpose and legacy and how to take their own leadership to the next-stage. Often, adults feedback how they gain far clearer perspectives on their personal and organizational challenges when out in nature.

All camping and sleeping equipment, food and safety equipment, is provided for participants. Participants simply bring outdoor clothing and journal book.
