Combinamos natureza, caminhada e mentoria numa ferramenta de autodesenvolvimento

Walking Mentorship | A nossa História

O conceito levou quase vinte anos a ser preparado. Apoiado em pesquisas junto com centenas de caminhadas com familiares, amigos e os seus amigos, assim foi criada a Walking Mentorship.

No final de 2015, os primeiro grupos sairam para a estrada com as suas mochilas. Desde aquele dia, centenas de pessoas em todo o mundo aderiram aos nossos diferentes programas ao ar livre e online.

João Perre Viana fundou a Walking Mentorship, e alguns anos depois juntou-se Nuno Santos Fernandes como partner. Assente num modelo de serviço inovador, o WM tem vindo a associar-se a diferentes co-mentores de várias geografias e organizações empenhadas em libertar todo o potencial das suas equipas. Sempre caminhando, sempre na natureza.

A nossa metodologia tem quatro momentos

1. Desacelerar

Limpa a tua mente

Desacelera com o suporte de mentoria e de um espaço de confiança onde é concentrar, limpar a mente e ganhar perspectiva. Podes participar nos nossos programas individualmente ou com a tua empresa ou equipa.

2. Reconectar

Simplifique a Vida

Reconecte-se consigo mesmo, com as pessoas ao seu redor e com o meio ambiente. Esta é uma oportunidade de simplificar a vida e voltar ao básico, naturalmente, passo a passo, como caminhar. Alinhe seus pensamentos com seu ritmo.

3. Ganhar perspectiva

Entenda o que é Essencial

Ou você tem uma decisão pessoal ou profissional importante a tomar, ou só precisa de um momento para se reconectar consigo mesmo e encontrar uma forma de recarregar as baterias. Isso é algo que só você pode fazer.

4. Agir

Crie uma Visão e um Plano de Ação

Ao final de cada programa, você revisitará seu objetivo final e acenderá sua paixão para alcançar a visão fundamental de sua vida. Você obterá uma compreensão profunda do que realmente o motiva e a capacidade de transformá-lo em um plano de ação.

A experiência de quem caminhou connosco

If you happen to be in the Walking Mentorship, there is no coincidence.

If you happen to be in the Walking Mentorship, there is no coincidence. You are, probably, at the point where you need to find a Truth, which once you knew, and that now you need to reconnect to. WM is a safe voyage, both ways: inside and outside, with peers, travellers, and seekers just like you. I recommend it to anyone who is willing to make some important insights, after which you will never be the same. And after which, you will surely, want to recommence. Because, once you start walking with João, you cannot stop walking.

Mladenka Perroton

Poet, Writer and Life coach

A joyful journey of self-discovery towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

Walking with Joao was a joyful journey of self-discovery towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life. We all have doubts about our choices, both personal and professional. The mentorship shows we also have the answers. Awareness and purpose help you focus your energy on what really makes a difference. The ideal future is at our reach and Joao helps build the compass.

It looks like walking, but in the end, it's thinking and crystallising the best ideas.

It's difficult to find a program more physically and intellectually intense. It looks like walking, but in the end, it's thinking and crystallising the best ideas which you have in your head. The venues are fantastic, the route is beautiful and on top, you are supported by a fantastic Mentor, with whom spending a week is a real treasure.

Vladislav Burda

President at Family Business Network Ukraine

What you have done during this week is priceless.

What you have done during this week is priceless. Amongst the different benefits I received throughout this journey, I realize that you were there the all-time for me. You made me realize that my life is whole and not divided between personal and professional. During this week, I felt things could change without having to change my entire life. I can be happy and go on. With your help, it became real and conscient in me.
