HOW WE DO IT
We work with whole organisations, leaders, teams and individuals to prepare them for future uncertainty – to go Knowingly into the Unknown. We work best with leaders in markets of change and disruption.
We offer a range of Adventure Psychology Tailored Solutions:
Be empowered by our Expert Talks.
Learn how to thrive in our Masterclasses.
Gain a fresh perspective in our Time Out Retreats.
Be invigorated through our Mentoring.
We assume the basic premise that life – and business – looks a bit like this:
An enduring obstacle course full of challenge and uncertainty. The good news is that “If everything was clear to you now, everything was already mapped out, there would be no evolution of yourself as a human being” (Eckhart Tolle).
Adventure Psychology helps you tackle the journey and evolve. Our model of the psychological journey is this:
Our mindset and narrative impact our thinking, emotions and behaviours. When we go knowingly into the unknown, we go with choice and preparedness into the future. The evolution of yourself on your journey provides you with the resilience, wisdom and growth you need to go more knowingly next time.
We deliver the mindset, tools and methodology to strengthen and enhance your resilience, wisdom and growth. We do this through our three unique phases:
Going Knowingly – how do I prepare for what’s ahead?
Into the Unknown – how do I cope in the midst of this challenging time?
Resilience – how do I become stronger?
The three phases preferably run in sequence. However, if you find yourself in the midst of a challenge or crisis – such as COVID19 – then we can be agile and deliver the ‘Into the Unknown’ phase immediately. Ideally, after this phase there is learning and growth – and we review, debrief and learn in order to build Resilience.
Each phase contains its’ own unique models and methodologies combining academic theory with the lived experience of enduring expeditions. We have gone knowingly into the unknown – preparing for a year at sea, or skiing 1000km to the South Pole. We understand how to survive, cope and thrive in the midst of challenging times – such as when we carried out two medivacs around Cape Horn. We have learned Resilience time and time again.
There is no-one better placed to share anticipatory thinking, agility and resilience tools.
