Team Leadership Training

Our Leadership Training is like no other leadership training in Australia. We provide the opportunity to lead your own team of University students in the field; where you are responsible for their success and welfare. Our Leadership Training is focused on building skills in emotional intelligence, business, social business, entrepreneurship, leadership, and innovation. There is no leadership opportunity like this in Australia.

Our curriculum is generated through combining techniques and approaches from the Australian Military in addition to multiple international leading sources. While there is a military influence, it is far enough removed to be relevant and applicable to the real world. We gear the training to facilitate the discovery of your own style of leadership, while equipping you with the tools and methods to succeed in a supportive and open environment.

As a Team Leader, you lead a team of 5 – 9 students on an International Project. There are opportunities to continue your training to advance to the Second in Charge (2IC) or Group Leader (GL) role on Project. In these senior roles, the team you lead increases significantly, in addition to your responsibility, and ability to create impact on the ground.

Our Leadership Training has four core components, and is available for those who excel on their Project Everest Project:
1.    Project Leadership
2.    People Leadership
3.    Personal Leadership
4.    Pressure Leadership

The Leadership Training involves a 5-day intensive immersive training (Immersion), with additional Workshops run on a weekly basis for the following four weeks post Immersion.

Trekker Training:

The first opportunity you have performing as a Team Leader will be at Trekker Training. You have experienced this yourself – this time you’re behind the scene – responsible for the event with the massive support and guidance of the Project Everest team.

What is the value?

This will develop through knowledge of your preparation, and will strengthen once you return from leading your team of University students on Project. You’re developing your personal brand and your professional portfolio, while creating genuine impact.
You will discover how to influence your immediate reaction to situations, how to manage a team with consideration of their personalities, goals and limitations. How to make effective and timely decisions, respond to a crisis, mentor and counsel an individual and a team, improve your communication skills verbal and physical. Emotional Intelligence is ranked above intelligence quotient in what employers look for in a candidate.

Completing a Project Everest Project is an impressive challenge, prospective employers search for indications of soft skills which are demonstrated exclusively through experience. Your position as a Leader elevates this statement. Employers want to see your ability to take responsibility, motivate yourself and others, project manage, communicate effectively, make decisions and solve problems, and work in a team structure.

Project Everest prepares you with comprehensive and practical business and social business understanding. There is a heavy focus on Entrepreneurship, Design Thinking, Lean Start Up Methods, the Business Model Canvas, and methodologies such as Scaling Up.
Project Everest considers each of our participants a member of our team. We have a shared vision for creating impact in communities, students and cross-cultural links. This vision is global, and extends far beyond the month long Project, or Team Leadership. We currently operate in four countries, East Timor, Cambodia, Fiji and Uganda, facilitating students based in Singapore and Australia and this is just the beginning.

We value and invest in our Leaders. Should you continue your training and return as an experienced Team Leader, Second in Charge, or Group Leader, we pay you a wage.

The leadership training with Project Everest is one of the most unique experiences an individual can go through. My outlook on tasks and life in general now has completely changed. I now have a better understanding of the incredibly broad scope of issues that can arise in any situation, and how to deal with them. You are put in a position that you could not EVER pre-conceive. That discomfort is what you feel in real pressure situations and to now understand techniques on how to mitigate these issues is invaluable.

Project Everest staff exceeded my highest expectations. The level of care and detail that is put into developing leaders is something I’ve never experienced. The emphasis on people is unmatched, TLT immersion training pushed me to my edge and I felt I’ve grown more than any other experience. This company prides itself on people and it reflects in the business heavily, nothing I believe comes close to the experiences that you develop and the personal growth you achieve when coming onboard as a Project Everest Leader.
