What is Nature-Based Leadership?
Nature-based leadership is the practice of connecting to yourself and your surroundings, by exploring the impact of your actions on your life, relationships, organizations, communities and perhaps, even on life itself. The better we become at tuning into our impact on others, the more effective our actions will be in creating inspired change in our lives and the communities we work and live in. By merging experiential leadership development tools, ecopsychology, mindfulness practices, and sensory immersion in natural settings, the Center for Nature and Leadership has created a new model of leadership that helps translate your personal insight into focused impact.
STILL NOT CONVINCED?
The practical benefits of immersion in nature have been well-documented in books like The Nature Fix, Vitamin N, and The Nature Principle, and cited in academic journals and magazines such as in Natural Geographic, the New York Times Magazine, and Outside. As you can see, people in various walks of life have experienced creative shifts of awareness, focus and action through immersion in nature. Now, just imagine the benefits when applied to your personal leadership and mentoring of others!
