From University of Utah Cognitive Psychologist David Strayer:
“When we slow down, stop the busywork, and take in beautiful natural surroundings, not only do we feel restored, but our mental performance improves too...
Strayer calls this the 'three-day effect and found that people he worked with "performed 50 percent better on creative problem-solving tasks after three days of wilderness backpacking.”
This experience is designed to be a conversation over light hiking (generally 3-5 miles a day) while letting nature's views help each leader open up to new perspectives and ways of leading. The environment accelerates growth individually and collectively to build momentum towards a key issue in the community or a company initiative.
Our Intentional MVMT facilitators are part of the consulting team at the Center for Intentional Leadership and leverage 20 years of experience working with leaders to create this highly unique outdoor experience.
