Improving corporate culture through wilderness experiences

86% of Australian employees are disengaged or actively disengaged, read detrimental, at work and this was before a pandemic that drove mental ill health, isolation, and quiet quitting (Gallup).

Our programs use the wilderness to build critical competencies that are lacking and to reinvigorate, bring teams together and engage people.

Build a character and values-based organisation that consistently beats the market and can attract, retain and sustain a tier 1 workforce

What you’ll find in the wild

The research is already in on what moves the needle for high performance in a changing landscape. Agile frameworks highlight the need for adaptability, Carol Dweck has established the need for a Growth Mindset and McKinsey notes the importance of authentic leadership.

The challenge that faces organisation is not what competencies, mindsets and character traits to build, but how to build them. Shifting mindsets, changing ingrained behaviours, examining our own character and beliefs and training adaptability and resilience does not work in cushy office environments or online training. 

The programs we run in the wilderness are drawn from a combination of research-driven insights into the efficacy of wilderness immersion and specific training modalities from psychology, coaching, business and the military with our own experiences as leaders and wild explorers. Everyone involved in our programs has walked the walk and continues to use wilderness exposure to build their own skillsets and challenge ingrained beliefs.

We work with every organisation, team and individual to ensure programs are achievable, accessible to all, and deliver tangible business value through building the right competencies and mindsets. Participants tell us they are more confident, resilient, effective and in touch with their strengths after our programs.
