School of the Wild is an experimental business school. We're on a mission to help organisations work with nature to both help their teams perform at their best, and to inspire a more regenerative relationship with the earth, as part of an ongoing strategy to develop.
Everything we do at School of the Wild is designed to get you out of the office to reconnect with each other, and be inspired by nature to make positive change.
Our programmes fuse creative and practical skills with facilitated campfire conversations to help you strengthen your connection to the land and to each other, leaving a lasting impact on the way your team thinks, feels and works together.
Yes, this is team building but not as you know it
This is not the kind of team building that feels like a forced activity, or involves happy hour.
This is about team building and leadership development programmes that open the space for meaningful conversations, that can truly transform what you do and the way people work together.
By bringing your team into nature, you can engage people to create real change in your organisation.
Especially since a healthy dose of nature is proven to calm people down, reduce burnout, improve work performance and build environmental awareness.
As our clients have discovered, meeting together in nature allows people to become more open to discuss challenges, brainstorm creative ideas, and get to know each other better in a way that’s just not possible in the work environment.
Combining team building and team listening
We believe that everything in your ecosystem is connected, just as it is in nature, and by bringing your team into nature, we can help you engage everyone to create real change in your organisation.
So we created programmes for leaders and teams that are hybrids: they combine learning and development (L+D), personal development, team building, team strategy, and fun, all in one programme.
All of our programmes offer an incredible sense of wellbeing, real connection, and a boost to creativity and focus as standard.
At School of the Wild, our mission is to help organisations work with nature to transform their teams and inspire a regenerative relationship with the world and each other. We bring leaders and teams outside to help you reconnect and think differently, so that you’re inspired to change the way you work.
We incorporate activities designed to help you see things differently, like making fire, working with symbols and connecting with nature as part of creating space for meaningful conversations that build belonging and align your workforce with your values.
