Mountains are places of brutal honesty; it cares not whether you are there or not. From such places we discover the realness of life and its demanding qualities. The experience of high altitude is transformative, helping us see beyond the latest fads and fashions. Enduring the hardships found on a high mountain, coupled with challenging life events teach us that successful transformation resides not in “best in class models,” but in finding and owning our unique purposes and strengths. In the effort to summit a high mountain peak, we learnt that a paradigm of “go slow to go fast,” works best. In the same way, there are no shortcuts to rediscovering our humanity. Taking one step at a time, yet without sacrificing our mindfulness toward a goal, gets one to the summit.
These experiences in engaging the constant battle between ego and purpose, between success and giving up, is what underpin our approach. This awareness shaped our vision of a world where human beings are considered contributors to a sustainable world, with profit resulting from people who live into the possibilities that they are, so becoming the best they can be for the world. This is how we build a world for our children’s’ children.
