Two weekends you’ll never forget

Don't be boring
feed your heart

Developed by Sage Hill Consulting and Wilderness Collective

Leading Takes a Toll.

Many leaders are on the verge of being burned out and uninspired.
Take the time to revive your heart and clear you vision.

Life doesn't stop.

Moving between home, work, and other responsibilities can feel like a revolving door of futility.
Create the space to rest and reflect on the things that are most important to you.

Leadership is lonely.

Most leaders carry a load that others don’t notice.
Be in the company of a few good men who know how isolating and discouraging leading others can be.

Step outside the ordinary.

Limited to only 11 men, this is an exclusive opportunity to help you see who you are made to be so you can do what you are made to do.

These weekends will help you feed your heart on:

  • the challenge of adventure
  • the brotherhood of men
  • the beauty of creation

These weekends combine adventure, times of personal reflection, and facilitated meaningful connection with other leaders who know what it’s like.
Before we ride each day we will spend some time in personal and communal reflection. Each evening, around the fire, we will have a time of facilitated conversation to help you grow in wisdom, courage, and love.

“Fireside Leadership” conversations led by Stephen James will help participants:

  • gain new perspectives and insights into their own leadership styles
  • better understand the impact and strategic advantage of developing high Emotional Intelligence
  • develop burnout resistance strategies for themselves and their teams.
