Too much sitting and staring at computer monitors rots brains.
That theory prompted Director, Allison Bliss to create walking idea labs: https://allisonbliss.sitedistrict.com/walk-with-bliss-idea-lab/
Distilling experience into focus in 1-hour “idea lab walks”, Bliss honed a methodology taking clients into nature using forward momentum to induce innovations and pacing concept-through-action steps for converting a client’s knowledge into an extra $100,000 of income to reduce global travel time.
Bliss has paced business leaders through market turnarounds in just an hour, often 100 times faster than lengthy classes, consultant or training programs.
The idea labs also facilitate leadership groups to refine their purpose, goals, and next actions, while entertained by pelicans fishing along the California coast.
Bliss noticed clients spiral down into despair while sitting, and instantly unwind into a full potential of possibilities as they started moving again. Recently released brain research on walking to improve brain connectivity (http://articles.latimes.com/2008/sep/08/health/he-walking8) validates Bliss’ anecdotal experiences. The 2011 & 2012 goal is to rollout this method for business teams nationally.
