How will you lead like a river? Where lies the source of your inspiration to lead others? How do you gather force, negotiate obstacles and flow with an energy that is uniquely yours?
Lead Like a River invites you to immerse yourself in the wild nature around you as you reflect on the patterns, visions, dreams, and concerns of your own professional life to shape the path that you and only you can follow.
The High Atlas Mountains offer the perfect setting for your journey. We spend our time in an extraordinary landscape where many grand aspects of nature come together: mountains, desert, lush orchards, Berber villages built into the rock, and, yes, even rivers. We’ll spend the first three days at the beautiful Kasbah du Toubkal, just one hour from Marrakech airport. This hidden Shangri—la is perched on rocks with stunning views of remote valleys and the summit of Mount Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa. Then we’ll trek up into the mountains to a remote mountain lodge, and the following day you will spend dawn-to-dusk solo time in the mountains. The day after your solo we will return to the Kasbah for the final day and a half.
Throughout your journey you will be guided by Trebbe Johnson and Eugene Hughes, leaders of two ground breaking entreprises, and both highly trained and experienced facilitators. The program is limited to a maximum of ten leaders from a variety of countries and professional fields.
DEDICATION, CREATIVE THINKING AND A REFUSAL TO GIVE UP WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH. YOU’VE WORKED HARD TO GET WHERE YOU ARE. YET YOU KNOW DEEP DOWN THAT YOUR WORK ISN’T FINISHED.
