The Leadership High™
A high altitude female leadership experience
We explore the link between physical challenge and mental bravery. Having
confidence is intrinsic to building a leadership mindset. You will tackle new challenges and encounter the different emotional states we all face when approaching new and evolving landscapes. #courage #confidence #collaboration
• What can we as women change to enable a ‘leadership mindset’ to become the norm?
• How can we strengthen the ‘confidence muscle’?
Our time together will be guided and led by our expert team, providing stimuli which will challenge you to thrive in changing environments and situations. Our group will consist of women who will each bring their own experiences to The Leadership High™; providing an opportunity to collaborate both during and after.
The experience takes place in the exhilarating landscape of the Pyrenees.READ MORE DETAIL
Whilst at home with young children Lara started taking other mums running. She met business partner Karen Crump in the playground (we like to call it the School Gate business model) and BlitzFitness was born.
An outdoor fitness community of over 300 #Blitzers now regularly run, jump, burpee and hop their way around the green spaces of SW London.
