“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.”
-Aristotle

For centuries, the majesty of nature has inspired native peoples, legendary artists, and enlightened leaders. Nowhere is that more true than in New Mexico, where stunning vistas, vast blue skies, and richly colored landscapes intertwine. It is here that ancient peoples began to draw spiritual and physical sustenance over 9,000 years ago. It is here that groundbreaking artists including Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams explored the profoundly resonant natural environments that shaped their creative legacies. And today, people from all walks of life still find inspiration in this place of serenity and strength.

When you join us in this strikingly beautiful and inspiring natural environment of New Mexico for an Elemental Thinking™ workshop, you’ll enjoy an unforgettable team experience with tangible output that readies you for action. Using the four basic elements of nature – Earth, Water, Fire, and Air – as a metaphor, our proprietary strategy development tool will enable your team to crystallize a vision, define strategic planks, agree on key imperatives, and ensure individual accountability and follow-through.

While strategy development can be inherently complex, our point of difference is our philosophy, “Simple in Nature.” We take simple, yet powerful cues from nature to focus, inspire, and empower teams to deliver rock solid strategies and tangible output.

Experience the elements.
Guided by 20+ years of experience with New Mexico and all it has to offer, our integrated, experiential team exercises take full advantage of the stimulating cultural and environmental surroundings to revitalize your team, build camaraderie, and encourage creative thinking and risk-taking.
