“Empowering Yourself: On the Slopes, in Life and in your Career”

We tailor make an itinerary that suits each group, and include as many meals, life coaching,
Birkman assessment indoor sessions etc as each group requests.

The Aspen Divas and a team of experienced executive and life coaches bring you a unique experience in
skiing - combining the practice of skiing with the art of risk taking and learning. Challenge your current paradigm of what is possible for you
in life using the slopes as a tool to support you in your growth. Your coaches will ensure that this is achieved in a safe and supportive
environment, allowing you to expand your comfort zone effortlessly.

The focus of this workshop will be to give participants a skiing experience with a difference. It is based on the premise that people learn best
when they trust each other, and feel safe to try out new ideas without judging themselves or being judged by others. The workshop brings
together the practice of skiing with the art of learning.

Work with fellow skiers, ski instructors, and executive and life coaches to
  • Improve your skiing technique and enhance your comfort on challenging slopes
  • Differentiate between perfection and excellence
  • Identify your performance zone

Learning how to stretch…comfortably.  This unit will explain the Birkman and the concept of the four performance zones: blah,
comfort, stretch, and yikes zone.  To continue to improve in life, at work, and on the slopes, you need to get comfortable taking risks.  The
keys to getting comfortable are to learn the boundaries of your stretch zone and to form a supportive group of Pacing Partners.

4:30 PM – 6:30 PM   Optional executive coaching sessions (45 minutes each)

A core principle of this program is that self-understanding is the springboard for individual growth.  The goal of this session is to unlock the
personal potential of each participant through increased understanding of their approach to taking risks and managing stress reactions.  We
believe learning how to manage pressure and stress is critical to enhancing one’s ability to take risks with confidence.

You will get there by reviewing the results of your Sports Grid which is based on the renowned Birkman Method, one of the most respected
and valued behavioral assessments tools.  It will provide insights into your ideal environment for expanding your boundaries in terms of
support and motivation from others and what happens when your needs don’t get met under stress.  Individuals will develop strategies and
tactics based on their Sports Grid for how to leverage your strengths and interests and practice to their motivational needs which will make
taking risks easier and more enjoyable.
