„Go Wild. Into the Wild“

"She says it’s about finding a new perspective, a different vantage point. One that sheds new light on the bigger picture as well as the smaller details. According to her, this new perspective is not going to be found in the comfort of an office chair at another seminar in some building somewhere. Instead, she believes it is found in wild nature, in the outdoors, in the oceans, in the natural environment.

„The secret to change is to change the conditions that you surround yourself by, whether externally or internally“. I want to help leaders find answers to their own questions. I want to assist those who are serious about change. Leaders who want to think and act differently and by doing so lead differently.”

Her philosophy is quite unique. It is an approach that uses the natural environment and wild nature to restructure the balance between a leader’s mind and a leader’s guts. Her approach is far removed from the conventional leadership approaches.

It is far removed from PowerPoint presentations, laptops and smartphones.  It is acted upon adventure instead of office assimilations. Camping instead of 5 Star Hotel Luxury. Listening instead of broadcasting. It is doing instead of just talking about it.
