Trekking in Himalaya to become better leaders



“How do I go deeper?” Climb! Indian spirituality and culture will provide answers and inspiration to a group of Danish senior executives as they set off for an 11-day leadership program in North India filled with eclectic experiences and surrounded by the breathtaking Himalaya Mountains.

With a blend of Western leadership training and Indian philosophy, spirituality and self-development – combining the best of both worlds in order to develop a strong, new sense of leadership – The Himalaya Executive Leadership Program (HELP) takes leadership training to a whole new level.

The Program was created by Copenhagen Business Schools Executive and its objective is to take capable and accomplished executives to their ultimate level of personal leadership.


Process of self-awareness
In May 2014, a select group of senior executives will participate in this unique high-altitude leadership training program. They will trek through remote and beautiful terrain to the base camp of unspoiled Kanchenjunga, the world’s third-highest mountain with its top 8.5 kilometres above sea level. The group will be led by a mountaineering pioneer who was the first two-time Everest summiteer and former head of the Indian Special Forces Mountaineering Training Centre.

Teams of executives will be coached by leading Scandinavian business psychologists, New York Times best-selling author and leadership expert Mette Nørgaard, and other program facilitators. At the same time, Indian spiritual leaders will be present to catalyse a process of self-awareness.


Philosophy
The program’s philosophy is that you cannot reach the next level of leadership by simply acquiring more skills or traditional competences. HELP’s objective is to elevate accomplished leaders to an even higher level of personal growth, grounding them in their inner strength while they transform themselves into extraordinary leaders. The program guides participants from their current level of professional proficiency, to a deeper awareness of strengths, wisdom, and leadership potential.

The approach is to build a more profound sense of self and the program focuses on developing profound:

Self-awareness

Social awareness and impact

Accomplishment through the commitment, stamina, and determination it takes to succeed.

These are thought to be the physical and mental building blocks for integrity, effective leadership, and strengthened followership.
