One of the biggest challenges we’re all facing right now is how to deal with the uncertainty that post-pandemic life is filled with. It’s not just your own challenge, but also that of your clients.

When you as a coach want to help your clients manoeuvre through this next phase in their lives and careers, you must first learn to deal with your own uncertainties.

That’s exactly what Climb Your Mountain COACHES is for!

Program costs: € 1,495

5 Days of hiking from hut to hut in the Austrian Alps with other inspiring coaches but without a fixed agenda. We’re going with the flow!

Living life is like moving among mountains

Climb Your Mountain COACHES

When you think about it living life is surprisingly similar to moving among mountains

You know there will be valleys and summits along the way.

So you may think you know what to expect, but you never really do.

Trails may look straightforward on the map, but they’re seldom smooth or easy.

You can’t be sure what lies around the next bend.

You don’t really know how the weather will behave.

You can be sure of only one thing: the mountains and Mother Nature are full of surprises that can make your hike easy, hard and anything in between.

What better environment to learn to handle uncertainties?

Why a mountain trek?

Because we humans are as much part of Nature as dogs, birds, lions, fish and yes, even trees and mountains. We are not meant to live a life stuck inside offices and sitting down all the time, disconnected from Nature. We are meant to move and be connected with Nature.

Research has shown that our brains work differently when we move. Parts that are quiet when we sit or lie down become engaged and active.

Walking in Nature, among mountains especially, is a form of active inactivity. As you focus on your physical environment (active) the mind easily wanders (inactive). Walking helps us to think creatively, making finding answers to difficult questions, solving problems and much easier.

It is also an environment filled with challenges you’re likely unfamiliar with. An ideal environment to practice dealing with uncertainty as you — and your clients — are having to do in this (almost) post-pandemic life.

We’ll alternate between walking and being. Giving ourselves ample time to not just ‘move through’ but also ‘be in’ our surroundings.

Reaching your goals

My name is Gerdi Verwoert. I’m a certified professional coach as well as a certified mountain hiking guide who helps busy managers, executives and coaches go from a life taken over by work to a better-balanced life with time for themselves and the things important to them. A life in which they are the self-leader they are meant to be.

Guiding my clients into Nature where they more easily disconnect from their busy lives and reconnect with themselves is an important element in all my coaching programs. You see, I believe that since we are all part of Nature, you can only be connected with yourself when you’re connected with Nature as well.

Nature is my coaching partner, my co-conspirator. She offers us a place to rest, regenerate, play and explore.
