Mission: Via dynamic exposure to something bigger than oneself (adventure & the outdoors), we connect leaders, teams and organizations with their purpose and potential.

What We Do

“At that center, we work because we love our work, and we love our work because we have chosen the right work, the work to which we belong.” - David Whyte

What we do is development of leaders, teams, culture to help individuals and organizations rise to their fullest potential.

Why we do it is because this work is very much aligned with who we are, what we believe, and how we approach growth & development.

How we do it is through strategic intention, trust, expertise and adventure!

Each and every experience will challenge you to rise above your day: day existence…as good as that may be. The challenge may include getting outside – of your office, of the city, of yourself! These unique, memorable experiences will ‘meet you where you are’ AND invite you to move beyond that to something greater. It won’t be easy…it will be engaging, fun, insightful and significant.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
