Inspired by the beauty and simplicity of nature and the instinctual resources to build the life you want, WYLD is about learning to see and feel what’s already within you. Undomesticated, free, autonomous, and creative, WYLD serves people of all ages, backgrounds, and industries. We are here to support anyone who wants to grow and live a more intentional, fulfilling life.
WYLD is about finding the internal compass within yourself or your business. It is about quieting society’s chaos and incessant chatter that influence us to steer our lives or businesses according to cultural expectations, norms, and pacing.
WYLD is here to change the way people work and live.
We provide frameworks, maps, and “milestones” so you can learn and grow in a practical way.
Navigational teaching is simple and application-based. We help you stock your toolkit and tap into the innate compass within your head, heart, and gut.
People learn by doing, sharing, and practicing. Retaining knowledge happens when the five senses are utilized.
Our curriculum engages “beginner’s mind” and novelty to boost creativity and innovation. Not knowing what to expect reveals our instincts and strengths.
Everything we need to know about growth, healing, business, and relationships can be taught by nature.
Cyclical, purposeful, rhythmic, evolving, organic, paradoxical, Mother Nature is the original entrepreneur.
Balance is not a destination or an obtainable metric, but rather the management of competing needs and values. Our curriculum is rooted in duality and harmony.
Scientific + Intuitive
Masculine + Feminine
Known + Unknown
Doing + Being
Logical + Conceptual
We start with our values. These are our foundational building blocks that ensure what you learn sticks for the long-term.
We spend time understanding your unique challenges and goals and build a custom strategy accordingly.
We then collaborate with you to select learning areas and tools that most effectively address your objective.
Finally, we select activities to bring those learning areas to life in a fun and engaging way that works best for you / your team.
If two companies approached us with a similar challenge — like building a strengths-based team — their sessions would look completely different. Your team’s goals, culture, and daily reality create the alchemy that ultimately guides your unique, WYLD experience.
These educational themes and tools reflect our “left + right brain” approach that both leverages cutting edge scientific research and taps into ancient wisdom traditions from around the world.
The WYLD experience really enforces an understanding of where you are in your leadership destiny (personally and professionally). The WYLD team does an amazing job of bringing the human element to business decision making and process.
They help you to articulate where you are in a particular problem or journey and reinforce the importance of naming where you are and accepting the feelings that come along with that. The WYLD curriculum enforces having a strong sense of self but also having an equally strong sense of others, specifically your coworkers. The WYLD way is an amazing way to be!er understand how you and those you work & live with operate.
- VP Team Retreat Participant
It all started with a little girl who had a profound appreciation for nature and an uncanny ability to recognize the gifts of all living beings.
Twenty years later our founder, Kristin Meek, combined her passion for the West with her school and work experiences in the East - from Gallup consulting to positive psychology and thousands of hours of executive coaching.
WYLD was founded in 2013 as a retreat company based in Wyoming - where the Gregory family have a working cattle ranch.
The idea was simple: let's explore the metaphors of nature-based activities and their application to everyday leadership.
Our work resonated so deeply with our earliest participants - they wanted more ways to incorporate the WYLD Way into their lives. So we evolved to become a holistic consultancy offering coaching, workshops (both in-person and virtual), and retreats all over the country. We serve leaders at all levels and in a broad range of industries.
Like any great idea, our name was born on a napkin.
It honors the working cattle ranch where we designed our first experiential classroom — Wyoming (WY) + LeaDership (LD) = WYLD. We’re spelled a bit differently, and we like that; it’s a reminder that there’s no one way or right way.
WYLD represents a belief that the natural world can reveal the true nature of our leadership — our potential and our impact.
WYLD examines and expands upon the belief that each individual possesses a gift that uniquely serves a purpose in the word purpose.
"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."

We have a female founder and we are a female-led collective.
Just like Mother Earth!
