One way ticket out of your comfort zone!
An adventure with Kimitisik let participants experience how it feels to leave their comfort zone and make them understand the importance of doing so. Our coaches will lead by example, showcasing the (personal) growth mindset and creating a supporting environment for participants to challenge themselves. Adventures take place in different contexts, from wild nature to cities and they typically last from a few days to a week. Throughout the activity, participants are encouraged to work together as a team to form synergies in order to reach their objective. At the end of an adventure participants gain confidence to face risks, take action and act overcoming their self limiting beliefs. An adventure is enriched by plenty of networking sessions, tailored coaching and motivation sessions, making it suitable both for individuals and for company retreats.
