Speakers Profile - Peak Teams - Reach for the Summit

Travels From:

Fee Range: D

An interactive, video-based mountain climb that tests individual and team performance under pressure. As the virtual climb unfolds, participants realise that they hold the clues to achieving their own, their teams and their communities' goals.

Comprised of a Set Up, Base Camp and Summit stage, the objective of the program is to summit the highest peak in the fastest time, at the lowest cost with as many climbers as possible. This means each team has to sustain performance while managing a budget, making decisions within a limited timeframe and dealing with numerous people issues such as losing the team leader half way up the mountain.

While highly engaged in the experience, participants benefit from continuous learning as they progress toward the summit. The application of these learnings provides the basis for a powerful debrief on the need for:

Inspired leadership
Cohesive teamwork
Effective communication
High performance behaviours under pressure

Creative support material is used to enhance and re-inforce the journey toward success. Themed journals are provided to record team discussion and reflection, individual cards allow personalised learnings and commitments, and managers are given A1-sized thought maps to put up in the office as a visual reminder of the event.

Post event follow up includes detailed debrief sessions with business leaders and collaboration on action plans and the required next steps to maximise results for the organisation.
