Workshop

Resilient Teamwork and Resilient Leadership

On his remote expeditions, Jim has encountered many teamwork and leadership challenges. During remote rescues and evacuations, the pressure increases, uncertainty grows, and team dynamics become strained. High-performing organizations face these same teamwork and leadership conditions in today’s fast-paced, ever-changing world.

By examining several real-world mountain rescue scenarios, Jim facilitates an invigorating, interactive workshop that has your team working together to resolve leadership and teamwork challenges. Some of the difficult rescues that Jim has helped with include:

  • Solo mountaineer with severe altitude illness at 19,200 feet on Denali (Mt. McKinley)
  • Hiker who fell 70 feet into a boulder field at 13,000 feet in Colorado
  • Climbers trapped at 19,900 feet on Mt. Everest

In this hands-on workshop, Jim uses engaging storytelling and vivid visuals to bring these scenarios to life. Then, he has your attendees work to resolve the dilemmas by having them:

  • Debate how to be a resilient team member
  • Identify traits of resilient leaders
  • Examine their own resilience strengths and weaknesses

This energizing workshop includes interactive sessions with small group work, large group facilitation, and individual self-reflections. Jim regularly facilitates this energizing program for top-quality organizations like Marriott, Credit Suisse, US Army, Kia Motors, and many more.

Attendees vigorously engage with the process because these are real teamwork challenges (not board games or simulations).  This energetic scenario will be brought to life by Jim’s intense videos, photos and first-hand experiences.

Interactive workshop is 1.5 – 3 hours
