Self Leadership Backbone Tuscany Venture 

Journey of Inquiry into the Self

The Self Leadership Backbone is a journey of discovery into the self. The program takes place in Chianti, Italy and brings together people that consciously step out of their everyday lives to realign themselves. Together we develop scenarios for your next chapter in life. How can you make good and meaningful use of your resources, your talent, and your time? How do you act effectively and achieve your purpose in life? What is it that you want to bring to life?

A “backbone” is a spine: the principal supporting element of our skeleton. This is where all our major movements have their origin. Without a healthy backbone, our movements are either painful – or impossible. If we transfer this image of the backbone to our lives, the Self Leadership Backbone is the supporting element on which we build our existence from day to day.


What is the Self Leadership Backbone Process?

The Self Leadership Backbone Process is an intensive work session on our inner person. It is a ” journey of discovery” that lasts three days, during which we find out what is really relevant and meaningful for us, our lives and our professions.

Within the framework of the process, we work on the following sequential guiding themes:

  1. History: what important experiences have shaped my life?
  2. Insights: what are my strengths and weaknesses? What do I stand for?
  3. Purpose: what is my contribution to this world, my calling? What are my core values?
  4. Ambition: where does my future lie? What are my dreams? What do I want to achieve in the next chapter of my life?
  5. Pathway: how do I sometimes sabotage myself? How do I overcome limiting beliefs and shape the next chapter of my life?

The program methodology combines inputs, group discussions with exchanges of experiences, journaling exercises and reflective walking. This allows you to experience your inner journey of discovery on various levels. The result is a deeper consciousness of ourselves and an insight into our inner dynamics. We educate ourselves to use our personal resources effectively, meaningfully and sustainably for our purpose.

This allows us to act authentically and congruently according to our values even under difficult external conditions. We have developed our inner moral compass.

Outcome of the SLB seminar

After the SLB seminar, the participants

  • Grasp what the “best person” they can become is like
  • Know how to bring the necessary changes in their life that allow them to become more of the “best person” they can become.
  • Have learned about their strengths and weaknesses and gained insights how to deal with them
  • Know what decisions (bigger and or smaller ones ) they need to take and they have developed a rough action plan for the next chapter of their life
  • know what to continue, stop and start doing to live their life in greater accordance with their purpose, values and ambition


On our personal backbone quest, we need to suspend our purely rational, judging mind and create a space, a fertile soil, in which our tacit, unconscious knowing can emerge. We need to have the confidence in our self that without rationalizing and judging something of importance will crystallize. Therefore the Self Leadership Backbone process depends on & trains our mindfulness.
