New Zealand Quest

LEADERSHIP & THE NATURAL WORLD

The Land of Aotearoa

New Zealand has one of the most extraordinary landscapes on earth and is home to the Maori, the indigenous Polynesian peoples who settled on the islands more than 1,000 years ago. The Maori have profound practices that bring harmony to their land and people, and on this Quest we will learn how both the public and private sectors have integrated Maori wisdom into their governance and life.

Our Quest begins on the South Island in Glenorchy - a 1-hour drive from Queenstown and home to nearby national wonders. We will hop on board a helicopter for an exhilarating ride over fjords and rivers leading to Lake Wakatipu and the impressive Mitre Peak, as well other highlights throughout the Fiordland National Park. We will also hike in the World Heritage area of the Mount Aspiring National Park and experience the peace and serenity of a forest created thousands of years ago and virtually untouched since the last ice age. 

Throughout the Quest a variety of landscapes will open up, inside and out, eventually leading us to our final destination on the North Island - the Whanganui River - a body of water which was recently granted “personhood” by the New Zealand government. We will have a chance to sit in a traditional “Marai” temple with Maori wisdom keepers, and learn from entrepreneurs and government leaders why aspects of the natural world have been offered the same rights as human beings.

The curriculum on this Quest includes practices to support masterful integrity in all aspects of our personal and professional lives.
