Himalaya Executive Leadership Program article 3 May 2013 in Børsen
The objective of the Himalaya Executive Leadership Program (HELP) is to take capable and
accomplished leaders to the ultimate level of their personal leadership. This program takes
place in the Himalayas, 11 days in May 2014. 24 senior executives have the potential to be selected for the high altitude leadership training program. They will trek to the base camp of unspoiled Kangchenjunga (top 8.5 km) led by a mountaineering pioneer, first two-times Everest
climber and former head of the Indian Special Forces Mountaineering Training centre. Teams of executives will be coached by leading Scandinavian business psychologists and facilitators as they ascend, while a leading Indian spiritual leader will provide inspiration, all for the ultimate personal development as a business leader.
We assume these leaders already master their professional disciplines, commercial competences and leadership toolbox. They are already experienced. The HELP philosophy is that you cannot reach the next level of leadership by getting further skills, toolboxes or traditional
competences. HELP’s objective is to take these accomplished leaders to the next level of personal
growth, grounding them in their inner strength while they transform themselves into extraordinary leaders. We want to take them from their current level of professional proficiency, to a level of awareness of their inner strength, wisdom and potential.
This program focuses on profound:
These are the building blocks for inner strength, integrity, and followership.
To be able to go further, you have to go deeper. It is this building of internal strength that will lead to external accomplishment on the next level for the individual, their
team, and organization.
Key benefits for you and your organization:
Increase your self-awareness. Increasing your self-awareness is the overall objective of HELP: You will gain a deeper understanding of what drives you and how you come across. The outcome will be a stronger sense of self and inner wisdom. This will increase your authenticity, presence and credibility as a leader. You will also gain a greater sense of through which lens you view the world – increasing your ability to decode your surroundings clearly and reinforcing your social-awareness.
Reinforce your social awareness and ability to build high performance teams: You will strengthen your awareness of others and ability to detect what drives them, and deepen your understanding of what it takes to build and sustain a high performance team.
Revisit your values, and broaden your wisdom: You will broaden and deepen your leadership values building your integrity further. You will build on the ability to remain mentally calm during challenge, to be grounded and present, and overall increase mental strength. Values that you can install in your organization and team upon return.
Building strong network: You will build a network for life via joint accomplishment and the strongest of collective experiences. CBS Executive will invite you to become a member of an exclusive HELP network group of executives with a common experience and frame of reference.
