In the busy and globalized world we live in today, we are bound to forget about the human potential to develop itself, both socially and ecologically. We all are nature. If you ask me, natural leadership means being aware of the immense connection we have with nature. When I listen to its wisdom, when I reflect those bits upon myself, I feel energized, humble, inspired. Consequently, this paves the way of becoming a true natural human-being and reflecting this towards others. If you start paving it yourself, you will become an inspiring natural leader. Someone who doesn’t execute the leading role by pulling and pushing, but by inspiring.
The trail journey invites you to walk your own path, find your own pace, being with all your senses widely opened, connected to nature at its finest, without the communication of mobile devices. As a facilitator we guide you in being there. But actually nature is in the lead, questions arising are truly answered by nature. It serves your transformation.
Natural Leadership for me is knowing my natural values and act upon them accordingly. It gives me a clear compass which I use both in professional and in private life. In my professional life as a trainer and teamcoach, knowing where I am coming from, supports me practically to create space for others - individuals and teams - to growth. To dare to show themselves and to create exciting results.
Natural Leadership is inspiring us to develop an environment that works for everyone, where people can simply be at their best. I believe that this way we really can make a difference.
During my trails in Africa and the Alps I have experienced the immense power of nature as a means for personal growth. In my view, true leadership comes from the 'authentic self’ that we all carry inside, but often are unable to sufficiently access in our day to day business. Leaving the material world behind, letting go of control and embracing the beauty of nature has proven a powerful tool in helping to redefine one’s true purpose and values in life. The FNL programs have provided me with more balance and calm in my life and have helped me enhance my focus, both personally and professionally. I believe that being able to lead oneself is the key to leading others. My mission as an FNL facilitator is to help participants in incorporating nature as an essential part of their life and by doing so become authentic, inspiring and energetic leaders who can help create a sustainable world for all.
The FNL programs have had a lasting impact on my life, incomparable to any of the other training programs I participated in, and meeting people with very different backgrounds, ideas and professional lives has broadened my views. And besides all that… enjoying basic life together is fun!
