Our trails are a journey of exploration and development and will give you the opportunity to build collaborative skills and grow.
While spending a couple of days together in the mountains most traits are laid bare and it will become clear that you will have to face them as a team and if some are not constructive, change them together.
Every participant will literally lead the group through the mountains. Leading while being observant and responsive to each other’s needs, capacities and expectations, communicating, supporting (and being supported), overcoming obstacles and dealing with real challenges together.
Being on a trail with a team from a company, we will be consciously working on how the team operates as a whole, looking at the dynamics and behaviour of the group and coaching the group in action.
Nevertheless, there is also space for individuals to work on their leadership skills, to reflect on their personal impact to be gently coached on ways to improve.
On the one hand, we will be consciously working on how the team operates as a whole, looking at the dynamics and behaviour of the group and coaching the group in action. On the other hand, there is space for individuals to work on their leadership skills, to reflect on their personal impact to be gently coached on ways to improve.
From 12-15 September we have organised a Personal Leadership Trail in Wallis, Switzerland, where you can join individually and learn from people with other occupations, backgrounds and therefore a different perspective. (Send us a mail if you’d like to know more about this trail or already reserve your spot!)
During a Leadership Trail with us you will develop your personal leadership skills in the mountains. Possibly you feel a bit out of your comfort zone, which gives your learning potential a great boost.
The mountains will act as both facilitator and catalyst in this development. Naturally, we will have human facilitators too: a coach and a mountain leader will develop a bespoke experience for your team. Prior to the trail experience, the coach will reach out to the team members to make sure our trail will meet all your needs and deliver the required outcomes.
1. Back to Nature (wild camping)
2. Peaks & Perspectives (trekking from hut to hut)
3. Basecamp de Luxe (daytrips from a luxurious mountain hotel)
I have chosen the Lateral Space, a boutique consultancy firm with an adventurous mind, as my partner. Their highly skilled consultants have guided many teams and leaders through impressive breakthroughs.
We share the same values, in particular:
“The trail was well balanced, which must have been a challenge taking into account our very diverse team, (also in terms of hiking experience). Really wonderful location, especially the mountain hut.”
“The coaching was needed and very positive: really supporting and driving the team dynamics/energies in the right direction.”
“The trail exceeded my expectations!”
“Normally in these nature team-building activities you see a soft-sports approach to fit all levels. This was not the case this time, I love that.”
“The hike was good, not too difficult but also not too easy, great nature experience and out-of standard routes.”
“What I really liked about the coaching was that you work in the area of phsycological safety and mindfulness, which is so refreshing in a work performance culture. I believe your approach is the right one.”
“Famke’s key strength is how she combines her great social skills with an in-depth knowledge of being in the outdoor and the mountains. This combination creates not only a strong feeling of safety in the group but also a great atmosphere of positivity and fun.”
