An interactive Video Adventure in Personal Growth
unparalleled access to the video archives of the world-acclaimed Banff Mountain Film
Festival and the library of the Banff Mountain Book Festival, John Amatt and Bernadette
McDonald are able to offer you insightful workshops which investigate:
Creating the Vision
Using film and literature as
the basis for 'real life' case studies, you will be immersed in unfolding drama on the
world's highest peaks. Lessons learned by climbers, explorers and adventurers in the
rarefied atmosphere of the Himalaya are skillfully woven into thoughtful discussion of
issues that impact your performance in the workplace. The net result will be more
effective "bottom line" performance and a more balanced lifestyle.
Follow the Australian team who
first climb and then parachute off the vertical Trango Tower in Pakistan. Discuss the
synergy that becomes possible when diverse skills are combined to create a joint vision
... manage risk ... and realize a dream ... in this heart-stopping adventure captured
completely on film.
Learn about leadership, when
tragedy unfolds before your eyes on the slopes of Mount Everest and the guide in charge
has to make the hardest decisions of his life, under the most trying of circumstances and
with completely irreversible results.
Investigate team dynamics
through the writings of three climbers of the ill-fated Everest 1996 expeditions: Jon
Krakauer's best-selling "Into Thin Air", Anatoli Boukreev's "The
Climb", and Matt Dickinson's "The Death Zone".
This half-day workshop will be
custom-designed to meet your specific training objectives and can be combined with a
feature presentation of the "Best of the Banff Mountain Film Festival". The
"Climbing Your Mountain of Change" workshop can be staged in-house, or at
meeting sites such as the world-renowned Banff Springs Hotel, located in Canada's first
National Park in the majestic Canadian Rockies.
