Company Information

Journey 360 Degrees is about traveling throughout the world and coming full circle in your own personal development and leadership journey through self-examination, personal challenge, and profound results learned on the road while traveling. Journey 360 Degrees will focus on developing, motivating, and empowering you to understand and challenge yourself and others, discover new potential for growth, and give back to the communities that help to change our lives. You will travel to inspiring destinations and explore the social, historical, and geographic contours of your travel destination while mining the landscape of your heart and mind.

You are immersed in the land you travel to, and then blend in the best leadership theory and principles around through experiential learning exercises such as hiking, river rafting, zip lines, ropes, community projects, and more. We then transition to active feedback that calls for action and acknowledgement, allowing each participant to reflect on the experience and journal their hopes, fears and a go forward strategy.

Our process starts with the exploration and understanding of yourself, what you value most in your life, and what impact you want to make on others. Then we build on collaborative relationships with others, in order to maximize their unique differences and embrace the wonders of diversity. Once you understand yourself and others, you begin to collaborate for the purpose of bringing about a call to action, developing a vision alignment, and setting the process for change to begin. These actions and team collaborations are always working for the betterment of our communities. Learning how to be a global citizen, and giving back to the lands that help to transform us is essential.

Our programs consist of one-day seminars to four, seven, and ten-day excursions. You can either meet up in a central city or meet at the destination so the bonding begins instantly and lifelong friendships begin to grow. Journey 360 Degrees has the unique ability to customize our curriculum to any destination anywhere in the world. We can quickly cater and adapt to any local a group desires to go to. Currently we are scheduled to travel to Costa Rica, Italy, and Snowbird Utah. Additional destinations being planned include; Greece, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Cambodia, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, and our very own Grand Canyon and Hawaii.

The week will be fluid with opportunities for group work, personal time to engage in relaxation, spa visits, adventure, sightseeing, and personal growth through our destination tailored, time-tested curriculum. While sharing the experience of traveling with friends, you will broaden your outlook on our global community. Everyone will experience a compelling personal journey of camaraderie, travel, and self-examination. The outcome is simple, we build a generation of enduring leaders that are compassionate and gain a deeper understanding of what it means to become a global citizen.
