Course Programme

Whether you currently hold a leadership position, are seeking to fulfil such a position in the future or wish to enhance your leadership skills, this highly interactive and inspirational course will help you to advance your skills in leading people, groups, and organisations enabling you to handle difficult non-clinical problems which commonly arise in your everyday life.  Ethics will be a key theme throughout.

The course aims not to be too ‘clinical’; rather to explore the core values of leadership of people, and inspire absolutely the best performance from participants and their teams.  Its uniqueness is that it will touch both the intellect and emotions, drawing on tested academic behavioural models as well as stories from the extreme, ever-changing and often dangerous environment of the high mountains, where people and their values are tested to the limit.

The course will run from 28-29 November 2016
