Everest Advance

Key Focus:  

Energising, mobilising & enabling High Performance Teams to develop a continuous improvement mindset.

Duration: 1.5 Day Programme

Programme Summary:  

Each Everest module combines workshop sessions on 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 team 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.  Each team will leave the Programme with an agreed Action Plan to get them to the next level.

Pre-Training – What to Expect: 

Before your team embark upon the Everest Advance Programme, each member will be asked to undertake an online StrengthscopeTM psychometric test, aimed at revealing the current status of the teams unique strengths and weaknesses.  Your teams’ aims and objectives will be discussed by Gerry Hussey with the Team Leader/Group Organiser.  Gerry will then tailor the content of the Everest Advance module to best suit your teams particular challenges.

All Everest modules include: 

  • Pre-Experience Needs Analysis with Client via Telephone with Gerry Hussey
  • Pre-Experience Team Member Profiling using StrengthscopeTM
  • Tailored Everest Advance Experiential Team Building Module facilitated by Gerry Hussey, Performance Consultant to the Irish Olympic Boxing team
  • Photo Footage of Your Everest Experience
  • Post Training Debrief & Action Report

Post Training – What to Expect:

8 weeks & 16 weeks after the Everest Advance module is completed team members will be asked to complete a followup assessement of their teams’ strengths and weaknesses, to measure the effectiveness of the Programme.  The findings will be forwarded to the Team Leader/Organiser and 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? 

The modules of the Everest Programme have been designed to be progressive and complementary.  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.

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.

Everest modules run for a minimum 1.5 days duration.


The Everest Team Development & Executive Leadership Programme has been developed by Gerry Hussey and the Delphi Adventure and Training team to deliver optimal Team Building experiences that deliver tangible results for every client. Teams that have completed the Everest Programmes to date have been delighted with the results. There is simply no other team or leadership development experience that matches the content, environment, experience and results delivered by Delphi Resort’s Everest Programme.
