  • What do you need to unlearn and how will you adapt as familiar paths no longer guide the way forward?

  • Are you ready to find the Sherpa within and transform the way you lead?

In Partnership With

We dream of a world where leadership is a bridge to a more unified and harmonious society, inspired by the simplicity and the strength of the Sherpa Way.

The Sherpa Way is a 5-month experience with a small cohort of leaders facilitated by master Sherpa guides and seasoned leadership coaches. We are confident that the awe, connection and growth you will experience in the Himalaya will transform you. Therefore, this journey begins with purpose and intent long before we arrive in Nepal and continues with lessons, integration, and application after we return.

What People Are Saying

The only aspect of the journey I was ill prepared for was the deep and lasting impact the people, culture and natural beauty of the Himalaya would have on my inner life. I’ve carried it within me each day forever after. My trip did not end with my return home, in fact, it had just begun.

EricWest Springfield, PA.

The experience was extraordinary - from the majestic mountains to the unique culture. Karma and the entire team of Sherpas led us in a way that we were both comfortable and challenged.

LeeNew York, NY.

For me, the trek was a pilgrimage of sorts, across ancient pathways and landscapes allowing me to settle into and listen to rhythm, not just of my footfalls, but of my thoughts, emotions and sense of myself.
