Aiming for a summit and reaching it: what does it take to be a leader for this kind of challenge? You have to choose your team, design and adapt a strategy, motivate yourself and others and find the energy to keep going, develop your ability to analyze a critical situation and carefully weigh your decisions …

Bernard Voyer highlights the many parallels between the corporate world and his experiences on his numerous expeditions. A lecture and a fascinating discussion with participants that focuses on the inner workings of leadership and the values underpinning action and the importance of commitment.

Forming skilled leaders and honing the skills of existing leaders are both absolute necessities today, given the immense pressure on corporate culture and operations. Few individuals or teams truly manage to seize all the arcane details and nuances of leadership, to encourage their organizations to excel, to reach peaks of performance and work together to overcome the many day-to-day challenges. For while everyone brings a different perspective to the table, it is important that they all work toward the same stimulating vision of the future.

Explorers and their teams are driven by ambition and daring as they launch themselves into each new adventure. The ambition to clearly define a goal and reach it together, and to have the technical know-how to make it possible. And daring backed up by the sort of flexibility and adaptability that nomads have, making it possible to adapt and cope with obstacles as they arise.

Interactive workshops/discussions encourage participants to discover and adopt relevant examples as a way of supporting their personal and professional development.
