HotHouse: Nature of Leadership programme

The Nature Of Leadership is an extraordinary four-night residential programme that takes place within nature, offering leaders an inspiring and transformative experience. It is designed for emerging leaders who want to be a force for good within their workplaces and communities.

This is the flagship course run by HotHouse - the Eden Project's creative leadership and cultural change programmes.

What is it?

The Nature Of Leadership is the HotHouse flagship, fully catered, residential programme that takes you on a four-day immersive journey into the natural world and back to your own true nature.

It is designed as a mixed sex and gender programme.

Without giving too much away you can expect - exclusive access to the Rainforest Biome, a trip to the beach, walks in the woods, time alone in nature, open discussion, an abundance of scrummy vegetarian food, and your own room in our on-site accommodation.

Who's it for?

Leadership trailblazers who want to create a net-positive impact on the world through their lives, businesses, organisations, and communities.

Why do it?

Quality time in nature, less interaction with technology, and being expertly led in and out of your comfort zone, all facilitate an opening for you to reconnect with the heart of your passions, talents, and dreams.

If you're seeking clarity around your mission, purpose, personal values, and how to walk these in to your day-to-day life so as to be of highest service to your community, this programme creates the space for deep reflection and contemplation like no other.
