Unsettled "Experience Leader" PositionEmbrace the unknown.
Always dreamed of combining traveling the world, building meaningful relationships, and living freely for one month at a time? Do you live for sharing experiences, or creating them? Then this position is for you...
You are a natural leader, mobilizer, and community builder. All your life, you have guided people into the unknown -- be it spiritually, physically, or mentally. You thrive in new environments, crave diversity, alternative perspectives, new experiences, and living life in the moment.
You are equal parts teacher and student of life. You are highly adaptable, creative and innovative under pressure, and have a deep patience for that which is unknown, uncertain, and unpredictable. You seek solutions and opportunities for yourself and the people around you, and never complain when the going gets tough. You love working with people, asking big questions, listening deeply, and guiding them through transition. You have extensive experience in group facilitation, mentoring, hosting workshops, and challenging people to be their best. You can live in the moment, but are highly organized, thorough, and pay attention to the details.
You believe in the process more than the destination, and that it's the constant journey of growth and discovery that makes this a wonderful life.
Unsettled is a community for those who seek to take their work, life, and adventures beyond traditional borders. We are a home for those who embrace uncertainty and value meaningful human connection; who realize that feeling a little bit "unsettled" is a positive impulse for change, innovation, and exploration.
Our month-long experiences are designed for entrepreneurs, creatives, and independent workers who thrive in movement, and for those who are going through transitions in life.
We provide participants with everything needed to be connected, comfortable, and collaborative: a private room, coworking space, local hosts, and an immersive community experience filled with workshops, events, activities, and more.
What does an “Unsettled Experience Leader” do?
An Unsettled experience is defined by the people who make up this community: the artists, creatives, and entrepreneurs who choose to live a little less settled than the rest of us. An Unsettled Experience Leader is our program leader who designs and runs the “front stage” of this month-long experience. He or she is the bedrock who designs and leads the meaningful and transformational aspects of each month.
Our Experience Leaders act as workshop facilitators, educators, spiritual guides, and listeners for our groups. They facilitate activities about transition and personal development; they help lead treks and hikes; they run activities during or after group dinners; and, they make sure a positive, enjoyable, and meaningful environment is present among the group.
