Fiennes Leadership Challenge 2022 – Emerging LeadersBuilding Tomorrows' Leaders Through A Crucible Experience
EXPERIENTIAL LEADERSHIP ADVENTURES
This is not a ‘walk in the park’.
“The skills required to conquer adversity and emerge stronger and more committed than ever are the same ones that make for extraordinary leaders.” HBR
A crucible is, by definition, a transformative experience through which an individual comes to a new or an altered sense of identity.
Not everyone has the opportunity to choose their crucible where they can learn the hard truths about themselves and the skills to lead in a safe and positive environment. Today’s young people are facing enormous world challenges that require a new kind of leadership and different skills to face these challenges, including the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
According to the World Economic Forum, a future workforce will require the following skills in the Fourth Industrial Revolution:
- Critical thinking
- Active learning with a growth mindset
- Interpersonal communication skills
- Emotional intelligence
- Judgment and decision making
- Diversity & cultural intelligence
- Embracing Change
- Technology skills
We’ll provide the opportunity to develop & PRACTICE 9 out of 10 of those skills
We are looking to create highly effective future leaders, so we are creating an opportunity for emerging leaders who already have a strong commitment to their community through volunteer work and/or have a strong commitment to creating positive change in their communities and the world. They do not need to be physically fit (though that will help with fatigue), and the program is not biased towards gender, culture or religion. The ideal participant is passionate about change, and mature enough to know they need to learn the skills to help them get where they want to be, to achieve what they need to achieve in their lives.
WHO IS SIR RANULPH FIENNES?
Sir Ranulph Fiennes has been titled by the Guinness book of Records as the ‘Worlds greatest living explorer’.
He was first to reach both Poles and first to cross Antarctic and Arctic Ocean (both with Charles Burton), first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis and entirely by surface travel and led the first hovercraft expedition up the longest river in the world (the Nile) in 1968/1969. He also achieved a world record for unsupported northerly polar travel in 1990 and a world first in 1992/1993 by completing the first unsupported crossing of the Antarctic Continent with Mike Stroud. This was the longest unsupported polar journey in history.
WHY THE FIENNES LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE?
On an expedition to recreate the Livingston Expedition in Africa, Sir Fiennes confided in the expedition artist Guy Hammond that he was constantly approached by young people wanting to learn to be explorers and adventurers. He was also approached by parents of young people who wanted their child to have an opportunity for real character growth through a physical adventure. Unfortunately, he was unable to assist in these areas, however it got him thinking about how he could make a positive impact in the growth and development of young people. Through Guy Hammond’s contact in Australia at Outback Initiatives, the Fiennes Leadership Challenge was born.
The Fiennes Leadership Challenge for emerging leaders is an 11 day ‘crucible’ experience supported by highly trained, experienced and professional staff in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.
