• Taking Leadership Who do you choose to be?

Five-day Taking leadership experience for women


Taking leadership: Who do you choose to be?


Key choices often come to cross crucial thresholds where courage is required to step in the unknown. As if we are freeing ourselves from unconscious ties that have kept us safe.


For who?

This five-day Leadership experience is designed for women-in-business who wish to address their impact and influence on a higher purpose. We will provide many learning opportunities for personal leadership and growth and offer intensive coaching, also by your peers. We will help to develop the awareness of ‘who do you choose to be’. We value a diverse and challenging group of participants.



  • Personal growth and Leadership: contemplation on who do you choose to be and re-evaluation of your personal aspirations
  • Balance between business, planet & humanity: exploring paradigms in economics, work and society
  • Patterns and trends within yourself and environment: authenticate your inner compass
  • Nature quest: connecting to your inner wisdom
  • Mythology: getting inspired by ancient wisdom and storytelling
  • Philosophy: the art of asking questions and discovering other ways of dialogue


We will create a setting for reflection, dialogue, contemplation, storytelling, fertile thinking, pleasure and being active in natural surroundings.
