Description:
It is widely recognised that an enabling environment is a key driver for performance.
The ‘ALIVE – Lessons from the Andes’ case study looks at what performance drivers are left when a supportive setting is suddenly stripped away. The case study explores how individual perseverance, will and grit, can be tested to almost breaking point, how our own convictions and blind spots influence our decision-making process and how leaders can equip themselves with a ‘survival toolbox’ to survive under and cope with extreme circumstances.
As this gripping tale of life and death, tragedy and triumph unfolds, Ricky Robinson, CEO of LRMG and facilitator of this engaging learning session, uses rich media and storytelling to reveal lessons and tools that can be used to enable performance when the odds are stacked against individuals and leaders.
