The importance of experiential learning.

When describing training, German Field Marshall Erwin Rommel said

War makes extremely heavy demands on the soldier’s strength and nerves. For this reason, make heavy demands on your men in peacetime exercises.”

Marc Cuban, one of many successful entrepreneurs, describes business as a war zone. At Project Everest, we choose to interpret Field Marshall Rommel’s words in the following way: 

Business makes extremely heavy demands on the entrepreneur’s fortitude and emotional intelligence. For this reason, make heavy demands on those who seek to become entrepreneurs through experiential learning.”  

Project Everest training methodology comes from our background in the Australian military and is backed by empirical research. When preparing for an environment that involves chaos, friction and uncertainty, an academic understanding of what it takes to thrive on the modern army battlefield is not enough. The military, therefore, adopts a learning approach which involves full engagement of all the senses and places the student in simulated and real-life environments from which to learn.

Project Everest develops skills which serve students throughout their lifetime and mirror those that employers seek in their graduates. Research has shown that the best ways to effectively develop the skills and demonstrate them for the purposes of gaining future opportunities is through the following methods; experiential learning, service learning, cultural interaction and empathy activities. We place a focus on full immersion through our training and projects in country. Whilst every other training provider is reducing their engagement by moving to online courses, we are running in the complete opposite direction and doubling down on our investment in experiential learning.

Never will you see within another organisation, where 30-40 other people will rock up at a location and give up their time to help train you.
