What is the Leadership Quest?

The Leadership Quest is a modern interpretation of the epic quest to discover meaning and accomplishment in life. It is designed as a self-development journey which combines the most thrilling aspects of neuroscience and self-leadership.

Never before in time humans have been faced with so many information, opportunities and choices, but also so much ambiguity, distraction and complexity as today. 

The Leadership Quest is a process leading to the exploration of both hidden potentials and sources of inner strength. 

As a participant, you will grasp new insights about how human brains tick and what this tells us about mastering uncertainty. You will engage with timeless concepts of human wisdom that are combined with research-based findings in neuroscience.  This provides new perspectives on the mechanisms that determine the way how we go after achievements and meaning in our daily lives.

The aim of this unique experience is to provide you with a new level of clarity and vitality when you think about the future.

  • The Leadership Quest starts with one day self-discovery and vision building – partly in a beautiful outdoor setting. 
  • What follows is an observation phase in which you will track patterns in your current everyday life. 
  • During a second day offsite you will derive concrete goals and effective strategies to achieve positive accomplishment. 

As human individuals, we are  programmed to organise ourselves in hierarchical groups -understanding the implications of social dynamics is fundamental to lead a self-determined life.  It is also valuable to learn about the key role of the two neurotransmitters Serotonin and Dopamine when it comes to achieve satisfaction and motivation in everyday life.

In addition you will get practical advise how to implement your goals in an agile way  faced with unexpected events and surprises. 

Markus Deutschmann, neuroscientist and physician at the Zurich University Hospital and leadership expert Sebastian Morgner join forces to guide you through this process of sustainable personal empowerment. 

why is it important?

  • Mental well-being is driven by positive emotion, engagement, meaning, good relationships and a sense of accomplishment. The Leadership Quest guides you to find out how to positively influence these drivers of mental fitness.
  • It will deepen your understanding how human brains process and perceive the world. You will learn to foster your positive thinking. 
  • it provides you as a participant with scientifically tested tools to accomplish important goals in an agile and focused manner.
