The Everest Executive Leadership programme is an intensive Leadership workshop combining the theory underpinning the topics covered, combined with outdoor activities that are specially designed to put the theory into practise in a variety of mentally and physically challenging situations – all challenges are designed to be group member appropriate, taking into consideration age/physical fitness levels/medical conditions/etc.  Each outdoor session is fully debriefed to ensure learnings are absorbed and understood in relation to the workplace.  Active participation and passionate debate are encouraged and expertly facilitated.  By completing the Everest Executive Leadership programme you will become a more confident, well-rounded and inspirational leader – capable of handling the challenges of the current environment and ready to step up to the next level in your career development.

Each Everest Executive Leadership participant will complete a StrengthscopeTM profile ahead of the practical workshop.  Strengthscope profiles will be debriefed during the practical workshop.

Each course participant will leave the Programme with an agreed Action Plan to develop their leadership abilities and take them to the next level.

Pre-Training – What to Expect: 

Before you embark upon the Everest Executive Leadership Programme, you will be asked to undertake an online StrengthscopeTM psychometric profile, aimed at revealing your unique leadership strengths.  Gerry Hussey, our lead facilitator, will discuss your specific aims and objectives with you ahead of arrival.  Gerry will then tailor the Everest Executive Leadership module to best suit course participants particular leadership challenges.

8 weeks after the Everest Executive Leadership module is completed course participants will be asked to complete a followup assessement of their leadership experiences post-training, to measure the effectiveness of the Programme.  The findings serves the dual purpose of both measuring the tangible ROI the Everest Programme has delivered, and highlighting those areas that may require further attention.

What Next? 

To be a truly great leader, you need to develop a truly great team.

The team development modules of the Everest Programme have been designed to be progressive and complementary.  Everest Connect brings a team through the process of connecting, collaborating and openly communicating to the point of achieving a shared vision and goals.

The Everest Advance module builds on the learnings teams achieve by completing Everest Connect, and is designed to be undertaken as a follow-on module.  It focuses on mobilising the combined strengths within the team and adopting a continuous improvement mindset to achieve exceptional results.

The Everest Engage module focuses on team member wellbeing, with the workshops designed to provide an understanding of the importance of adopting a wellness mindset.  The module explores the benefits of mindful communication and leadership, what this looks like, and how this approach is critical to achieving healthy, motivated and engaged workplaces.

Teams will get to experience a variety of workshops designed to optimise their mental and physical health and provide them with a personalised toolkit to help them develop resilience, encourage creativity and enjoy a healthier, less stressful, lifestyle . Topics covered include:

  1. Reducing Stress and anxiety
  2. Building Resilient Teams
  3. Maximising our ability to be creative and innovative
  4. Creating an inspiring culture of wellness and engagement
  5. Developing clever habits to help maintain a healthy and productive mind, body and spirit

Everest Engage can be undertaken independently of Everest Connect and Everest Advance, with some teams preferring to begin their Everest experience with this stand-alone module, and others choosing to add the module to the end of an Everest Connect or Everest Advance module, creating a comprehensive 3 day programme.
