What We Do

“AT THAT CENTER, WE WORK BECAUSE WE LOVE OUR WORK, AND WE LOVE OUR WORK BECAUSE WE HAVE CHOSEN THE RIGHT WORK, THE WORK TO WHICH WE BELONG.” - DAVID WHYTE

WHAT WE DO  WE DEVELOP LEADERS, TEAMS, CULTURE TO HELP INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANIZATIONS RISE TO THEIR FULLEST POTENTIAL.

WHY WE DO IT  THIS WORK IS VERY MUCH ALIGNED WITH WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE BELIEVE, AND HOW WE APPROACH GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT.

 

EACH AND EVERY EXPERIENCE WILL CHALLENGE YOU TO RISE ABOVE YOUR DAY TO DAY EXISTENCE… AS GOOD AS THAT MAY BE. THE CHALLENGE MAY INCLUDE GETTING OUTSIDE – OF YOUR OFFICE, OF THE CITY, OF YOURSELF!  THESE UNIQUE, MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES WILL ‘MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE’ AND INVITE YOU TO MOVE BEYOND THAT TO SOMETHING GREATER. IT WON’T BE EASY… IT WILL BE ENGAGING, FUN, INSIGHTFUL AND SIGNIFICANT.

Adventures

STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT

We provide a framework, process and expert facilitation to guide you and your senior team’s development of strategy.

TEAM DEVELOPMENT

Intact, interdependent & cross functional teams and new leader integration.

COACHING

Our Guides have been there. We are seasoned business leaders who have experienced just about every hazard and soul-filling experience organizational life can throw at you.

CONFERENCE DESIGN & KEYNOTES

We can support you with design and delivery of your entire leadership summit/conference experience or just a portion of it.

RETREATS

We view adventure as more than a metaphor and use challenging experiences to facilitate your leaders’ growth and alignment as a team.

EXPERIENTIAL ACTIVITIES

By definition, all the experiences that we design with you will have, well, an experiential component!

“TWENTY YEARS FROM NOW YOU WILL BE MORE DISAPPOINTED BY THE THINGS YOU DIDN'T DO THAN BY THE ONES YOU DID DO. SO THROW OFF THE BOWLINES. SAIL AWAY FROM THE SAFE HARBOR. CATCH THE TRADE WINDS IN YOUR SAILS. EXPLORE. DREAM. DISCOVER.”
