Walking Mentorship | The StoryThe concept took almost twenty years to prepare. Supported by research along with hundreds of walks with family, friends and their friends the Walking Mentorship was created.
How do you climb a mountain? The same way you climb two!
The difference is that you are more experienced in the second round, and the difficulties seem to be less of a problem and more of a learning opportunity. The process becomes the objective, and the present moment, a glimpse of eternity.
At the end of 2015, the first groups hit the road with their backpacks. Since that day, hundreds of people worldwide have joined our different out of doors and online programs.
João Perre Viana founded the Walking Mentorship, and a few years later, was joined by Nuno Santos Fernandes as a partner. Based on an innovative service model, the WM has been partnering with different co-mentors from various geographies and also organizations committed to unleashing their teams' full potential.
Always walking, always in nature. Our programs, help you to slow down with mentoring support in a trustworthy space where you can focus, clear your mind, and gain perspective. This is an opportunity to simplify life and go back to basics, naturally, step by step, just like walking.
By the end of each program, you will revisit your ultimate purpose and ignite your passion to achieve the fundamental vision of your life. You will gain a deep understanding of what truly motivates you and the ability to turn it into an action plan.
Methodology | A virtuous circle
A PHILOSOPHY OF SELF-DEVELOPMENT.Walking Mentorship helps you (re)connect with your ultimate purpose. Revise your priorities and gain clarity where and how you want to go next.
Developing yourself to become the person you want to be is the biggest challenge of life. No one can do that for you! Walking Mentorship helps you take ownership and responsibility of your thoughts and your actions. The methodology coined Survival Kit will support you to understand better how you think and how you can make the necessary changes. To walk, you need to start with two legs. The rest is optional. Step by step you can create new meanings. How?
