What does our @ The Helm inspiration sailing trip to personal leadership for teams entail?
Our inspiration sailing trips @The Helm for teams are unique. We combine the principles of mindfulness, zen and neuropsychology with the principles of good ocean sailing.

Because you can’t control the waves, but you can learn to sail by training your mind and brain.

The six modules of the @ The Helm inspiration sailing trip for teams
Your team is welcome on board for a one-day or multi-day sailing trip. On the beautiful IJsselmeer or in Greece, where we sail between beautiful islands in the Ionian Sea. Your team members will literally experience what it is like to be at the helm. Because “at the helm” here is a metaphor for personal leadership.
Your team sails in six modules (etappes) towards personal leadership in life and work.
During etappe 1 your team cultivates the mentality of a curious, adventurous traveller/sailor. We call this the “Traveller’s Mind”. This mindset helps your team to approach work, team members and challenges with a curious, open mind. Scientific research shows that this mindset increases the creativity and effectiveness of the members of your team.
Now, with the help of the Traveller Mind, your team is ready to sail the other 5 etappes of our @ The Helm training. (You can read more about the 6 stages on this page).
You can choose how many etappes your team sails on board. Each etappe represents a day and a theme. If your team doesn’t sail all six etappes on board, your team members will receive the remaining etappes online via our online training @ The Helm. This combination of sailing, on-board training and online training is unique!
