The Trust has developed an exciting partnership with Australasian human resource and training consultancy, Generator Talent Group, working together to design a corporate leadership programme drawing on the leadership lessons from the heroic-era of Antarctic Exploration.
The result is The Explorers Mindset Leadership Programme, which looks at how the legendary heroic-era expeditions were led. Corporate managers from one of New Zealand’s largest retailers are currently working through the pilot programme with feedback to date being very positive. The programme will conclude with the participants conducting their own expedition early next year.
Trust alumnus Marcus Waters, who was a facilitator on the programme’s opening day says, “It’s fascinating and exciting to see managers who are dealing with a challenging business environment, gain insights from heroic-era Antarctic explorers who also did not know what sort of environment or challenges they were going to encounter”. A percentage of the proceeds from the programme will support the Trust.
