I just wrapped up a successful (and really fun!) expedition climb to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. While Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, standing at 19,341 feet, it is also an amazingly diverse cultural and biodiverse experience. Climbing Kilimanjaro offers a full experience and never disappoints with surprises and beauty.
This year I took eight leaders on the expedition and while we are all continuing to process the experience and learning, suffice it to say the experience offered a deeper level of learning than we imagined. I will write a more detailed post in the next weeks offering some of the lessons learned.
Below is a short video taken while climbing early in the expedition:
The Kilimanjaro Project – 2016
I am really excited to announce that after offering individual leadership development experiences on Kilimanjaro that I am now formally offering Kilimanjaro summit climbs as a part of our High Performance Leader development program for teams and organizations. The Summit Leadership – Kilimanjaro Project will be a year long experience that culminates in a team summit climb of Kilimanjaro. We will begin the program with a two-day offsite that focuses on team development and individual leadership strengths and challenges. Following the kick-off the program will shift toward individual coaching and focus on strength building. The culmination of the Kilimanjaro will conclude with an ascent of Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,341 ft.) via the Lemosho Route. Project start dates will begin in July and January each year with summit expeditions to Kilimanjaro occurring in June and November. We will limit each team to ten members. If you would like more information for your team or organization contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org More details to follow shortly! Super excited to offer this in 2016!
