Frequently asked questions
Where will I be going on a journey?
You'll find out when you get there. We've organized journeys in over 30 different countries. Maybe you'll be going to one of them. And maybe not. Just surrender to the process; it's the best way of learning and developing yourself.
How fit do I have to be?
Journeys are designed so that everyone can participate. If required, we always have contingency plans for those who - for whatever reason - have mobility issues.
How long does a journey last?
Most of our journeys are approximately 5 days.
What should I bring?
That depends on where you're going. Wherever that is, you always receive a comprehensive pack list beforehand. We’ll make sure you know what to bring.
Why do journeys usually mean travelling to a foreign country? Couldn't the same results be achieved on our premises or somewhere close by?
In a word; no. A key aspect in making journeys so effective is that they shift you out of reference and keep you on the move. We’ve discovered over the years that taking people to extraordinary places produces extraordinary results. Here’s a more extensive list of reasons why.
How big is the group that goes on a journey?
As a general rule of thumb, between 50 and 250 is what we call 'normal'. The smallest groups we take have eight or nine people (e.g. the senior management team). We’ve also mobilized an entire organization - 20,000 employees - simultaneously at different locations throughout the world.
What exactly is a journey?
One participant described his experience as "the most amazing five days I have had in my entire career." See here for a more extensive explanation.
Can you go on more than one journey?
Yes. Although you will already notice a fundamental difference in behavior, awareness and team spirit after the first journey, the best results are achieved by completing three journeys. We call this process PureMotion.
Why go on a journey in the first place?
People are capable of much more than they realize. Journeys are a very effective way of helping fulfill this potential.
Who should go on a journey?
Anyone who has a crucial role in realizing a stated goal within your company (e.g. business revival, leadership development or strategy implementation). This could mean anything from the management team or your organization’s ‘top 100’ to emerging talents, high potentials, leaders of a business group/division or a team assembled to carry out a specific project.
What happens once a journey has finished?
Once you’re back at your job you will almost certainly notice that you think and act differently than before. We also have a structured process that supports you in this, which includes a follow-up program and a book. And, of course, you can also participate in another journey to go even deeper than before and to further cement the learnings from first time round.
What does a journey cost?
Every journey has its own unique logistical requirements, and this influences the price. Some destinations are naturally more expensive than others. As a guideline, we say between €900 and €1200 per person, per day.
That’s pretty similar to the cost of typical employee training - and our price includes all necessary equipment plus travel and accommodation costs. As one participating CEO helpfully (and spontaneously) told his team; “if we go on another 33 such journeys, we will still have spent less than we did developing our strategy!”
