Executive Leadership Challenge

The Executive Leadership Challenge is a unique corporate leadership retreat. Executives who participate will take on interactive wilderness challenges, and engage in one-on-one coaching sessions to emerge as transformed leaders.


  • Executive program to transform leaders
  • Transform executives into effective leaders
  • Unique leadership development challenges for executives

With this program, you will

  • Identify and build on your leadership strengths to become better leaders
  • Transcend the limits of your leadership abilities
  • Be challenged physically, emotionally, and mentally

To be an effective leader, you must first understand how you lead.

The Executive Leadership Challenge gives each leader a turn to lead their group of colleagues through mental, emotional, and physical challenges on an outdoor retreat. Each part of the program is designed to get your executives out of their leadership comfort zone.

Held in a remote location, challenges will present participants with the opportunity to adapt their leadership style and go beyond what they believe is possible. Leaders may clash and flourish… but in the wilderness, success only comes with effort.


Program Overview & Features

The Executive Leadership Challenge pushes participants to the edge of their abilities, transforming the way they lead. Getting out of the ordinary starts with a destination location that is both unfamiliar and remote, testing each leader’s abilities to grow and adapt.

Each leadership challenge will be followed by a group and individual coaching session, where the experience is broken down. By reviewing each challenge in detail, participants can build on strengths to grow their leadership mindset.

Those ready to take on the challenge will emerge as transformed leaders.


How the program works:

Prior to starting the Executive Leadership Challenge, participants will have a one-to-one coaching session with a psychological coach. Using the Innate Leaders methodology, your coach will assess the leadership approach of each participant.

The retreat can be held in a number of carefully selected destinations. Our consultants recommend areas such as the backcountry of British Columbia, Canada, Scotland's Inner Hebrides, or the Picos de Europa National Park in Spain. Participants will gather at your chosen location and tackle each challenge, designed to test the limits of their leadership.

Participants could find themselves starting a fire from scratch to cook their lunch, building a shelter for the night, or even crafting a boat from cardboard to take the team across a lake to the next staging point. Whatever the challenge, it will highlight the specific leadership strengths and weaknesses of the designated leader.

Building on the individual’s strengths, each leader will need to adapt to find a solution and successfully lead the team. Over the course of this program, participants will come face to face with their own leadership abilities and constraints, as well as those of others.
