WHY "COMPLEAT"

"Having all of the necessary elements of a particular craft"


In 1653, Izaak Walton published The Compleat Angler, which has become the mostly widely reprinted book in the English language after the Holy Bible and Pilgrim’s Progress.  While this timeless work may appear on the surface to merely provide stories about fishing, a closer look reveals deeper insights about the virtues of connecting to the world around us, and the contentment found in giving oneself entirely to a focused pursuit that simultaneously provides an intensely relaxed and contemplative state. From that place, our ability to pursue our goals with purpose and clarity is increased, as is our likelihood of success. 

While originally simply an archaic spelling, as a result of Walton’s book, “compleat” has commonly come to refer to “someone who has all of the necessary elements of a particular craft.” 
We can think of no better way to describe a leader who has achieved their full capacity to perform.

OVERVIEW

A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO SOLVING YOUR LEADERSHIP CHALLENGES

The Compleat Leader is not the typical executive development program in a conference room filled with slide-decks and binders. It is also not the typical corporate excursion with the facade of real work.

 

It is an exclusive and targeted roll-up-the-sleeves workshop experience focused solely on maximizing your impact as a senior leader or leadership team and solving your most pressing challenge.  Provocative questions and dialogue, deep insights, best practices and tools, and the expertise of peers and executive coaches converge to accelerate practical problem solving and breakthrough solutions.  

 

Past participants say that it offers "rare time and space" to dig deep, reflect, and develop a game plan that can be put into action immediately. All of this while tapping into the unique attributes of fly fishing as a means to bringing unparalleled clarity and focus to your challenge.  

 

This is The Compleat Leader experience.

A SMALL GROUP OF SENIOR LEADERS COMMITTED TO MAXIMIZING PERSONAL IMPACT

The Compleat Leader provides a unique opportunity for senior leaders and senior leadership teams to share and face challenges and opportunities that have significant impact on themselves, their organizations, and others.
 

Participation in this unique program is limited to no more than 12 leaders to ensure open and rich dialogue, targeted coaching, and collaborative learning.

 

You will achieve a level of personal insight and clarity that is simply not possible in a typical conference room or back at the office.

THE PERFECT ENVIRONMENT FOR TACKLING YOUR CHALLENGE

The Compleat Leader experience takes place away from distractions, surrounded by breathtaking scenery.  You will apply a targeted suite of leadership performance approaches with the unique attributes of fly fishing, all under the supportive care of world-class leadership coaches and expert fly fishing guides.

 

Neuroscience research shows a clear link between fly fishing and a “relaxation response” that is essential to focus and thriving in stressful situations.  By shifting between individually-focused activities and group work, you will relax, reflect, think, and craft a purposeful plan for solving your specific challenges and opportunities.

PATAGONIA, CHILE

THE  MITICO PUELO LODGE

The Compleat Leader in Chile takes place in Northern Patagonia, one of the world's iconic fly fishing regions, and a location perfectly suited to provide an immensely high impact experience. Chile is one of the longest and narrowest countries in the world, with broad cultural and climatic contrasts, thousand year-old glaciers, and the backdrop of the Andes Mountains in the middle of modern cities such as Santiago.

While the program will begin and end in Santiago, the program's core will take place at the Mitico Puelo Lodge, located in the Llanquihue province within the Los Lagos region of Northern Patagonia. The Los Lagos Region is known for its forests, Andean Mountains, beautiful lakes, and world-class fly fishing.

 

Mitico Puelo is the embodiment of nature and adventure, refuge and discovery. It is located along the banks of Lake Tagua Tagua and operated with a commitment to sustainability and conservation. The secluded location, accessible only by boat or plane, provides an unparalleled setting for the purpose of The Compleat Leader. Casual elegance meets world-class accommodations and a staff with the expertise to ensure a first-rate experience.

Program Length: 8 days

TESTIMONIALS

"THIS EXPERIENCE AND THE TIME I SPENT ON 'ME' HAS TRULY CHANGED MY LIFE"

>))))>

"HAVING EXPERIENCED MANY LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS IN MY CAREER, THE COMPLEAT LEADER IS TRULY AN INNOVATIVE INTERSECTION OF LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT AND EXECUTIVE MINDFULNESS. THE BACKDROP TO THIS EXPERIENCE IS A SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT THAT PROVIDES PERSPECTIVE THAT SIMPLY CANNOT BE GAINED IN A TRADITIONAL LEARNING CONTEXT. THE PROGRAM WAS AN EXPERIENCE I WILL NEVER FORGET, PROVIDING ME UNATTAINABLE CLARITY IN A MOMENT WHEN I NEEDED IT MOST IN MY CAREER AND LIFE"

>))))>

“THE CRAFT OF FLY-FISHING IS UNIQUELY SUITED TO BRING ONE INTO A NATURAL STATE OF RELAXED SELF-OBSERVATION, HELPING TO CULTIVATE SELF-AWARENESS AND PRESENCE. THE DAILY IN-DEPTH DIALOGUE AND REFLECTIONS WITH OTHER SENIOR LEADERS FURTHER DEEPENED MY SELF-AWARENESS TO NEW LEVELS OF INSIGHT. LINKAGES BETWEEN FLY FISHING AND LEADERSHIP BECAME MORE EXPLICIT AND COMPELLING. LEARNING UNFOLDED NATURALLY WITH A COMMUNITY OF SUPPORTIVE LEADERS WITH WHOM I SHARED SO MANY COMMON EXPERIENCES"

>))))>

"I JUMPED IN WITH BOTH FEET TO BE PART OF THIS EXPERIENCE. I WAS EXPOSED TO INCREDIBLE HUMANS ABOVE ALL ELSE. WE PUSHED EACH OTHER TO EMBRACE OUR AUTHENTIC TRUTHS. THAT CREW WILL FOREVER BE PART OF MY TRIBE. NAJEEB AND SCOTT ARE THE REAL DEAL AS MY GUIDES EVEN TODAY. BE READY TO DIG DEEP, BE ONE WITH NATURE, AND WALK AWAY REMINDED OF YOUR PURPOSE AND OWNING YOUR LIFE AND CAREER ON YOUR OWN TERMS"

ROI FOR LEADERS

The impact or ROI of Compleat is significant. Because the participants are senior leaders, the impact and influence they have on their respective teams and organizations is disproportionate. When senior leaders are able to focus and gain clarity on big decisions, team challenges, their own mindset, legacy and succession, or personal work/life rhythm, the positive impact is both short and long term. The ripple-effect of a leader with greater clarity and focus on both and life is tangible. Participants tell us that the investment of time and some dollars on the Compleat experience was insignificant compared to the significant return they realized through:
 

  • New-found clarity.

  • Big decisions made and big problems solved.

  • A new plan forward.

  • Mindset shift.

  • Confidence and optimism.

  • Weight off the shoulders.

  • Heightened self-awareness and personal insight.

  • Purpose.

  • A new trusted circle of friends, peers and advisors.

  • A new sense of ownership of life and career.



ROI FOR TEAMS
All of the above, plus the following:

  • Solving a pressing enterprise business problem/challenge that creates immediate impact.

  • Clarity and alignment on vision/direction/strategy that leads to interdependence, collaboration, and execution.

  • Healthier team dynamics and team climate that lead directly to team and organization performance.

  • Stronger team dynamics and trust that lead to more, richer dialogue, collaboration, better ideas, and better execution.
