What is Natural Leadership?

Natural Leadership is a guided nature connection practice that serves as a powerful facilitation and team-building  framework to take businesses to the next level.

We offer business leaders nature-inspired programs that restore wellbeing and enhance performance for their teams.

Natural Leadership was founded in 2021 by Emmett Phil Coriat, a pharmacist and successful healthcare technology entrepreneur who rebounded from a burnout thanks to Nature.

The programs are inspired by the Japanese practice of Forest Bathing (sensory immersion in Nature), and draw on scientific findings from more than 900 publications demonstrating the efficacy of Nature as an antidote to our stress, anxiety and burnout epidemic of the 21st century.

Natural Leadership’s programs combine scientifically-proven benefits on two levels:

  • Wellbeing – prevents burnout. Restores emotional, physiological, cognitive and social health.
  • Performance – unlocks intuition. Enhances executive capabilities for decision-making, problem solving, creativity, and resilience.

Natural Leadership Circle

“in our crazy, noisy, fast-paced and hyper-stimulated world, we lose sight of the
magnificence, inspiration, and true peace possible from just taking time to truly
appreciate the nature around us. Emmett Phil was an exemplary guide – supportive, encouraging, warm, patient, and respectful. A memorable two hours that were eye-opening, inspirational and truly transformative”
