Are you happy that your team is performing to its full
Just like when we take our car in for an MOT or visit the GP
for a check up, sometimes it is not a bad idea to get a
check up and see how the team are doing. If you are leading
a high performance team why not try out our new on line team
diagnostic questionnaire and see how ‘team fit’ you are. The
cost is kept to a minimum for you but the results could be
really useful. Drop us an email
We will get you set up for a confidential team check up and
come and see you with the results.
On Top of the World
Many of you will have been watching the trials of James
Cracknell and Ben Fogle in the ‘On thin Ice’ programme
documenting their race to the South Pole. Not surprisingly,
the race organisers are being inundated with enquiries about
Polar trekking must be a natural challenge for triathletes
to try their hand at. Many of you are probably fascinated by
the thought of what it would be like to take on those
extreme conditions and experience the thrill and beauty of
the Arctic. Well – the opportunity could be closer than you
John Peck - a seasoned adventurer & leader of from Executive
Stretch Ltd.– has taken on many similar challenges – the
notorious Marathon des Sables – billed as ‘the toughest
footrace on earth’; a successful rowing of the Atlantic and
a number of unclimbed peaks around the world.
In May next year, John will be working with Polar Challenge
to take a small, carefully selected team of executives on a
unique trek to the 1996 location of the Magnetic North Pole
The environmental and physical challenges will be extreme.
Temperatures drop as low as - 50C and it is home to 80% of
the world's Polar Bears. More people have stood on top of
Everest than have set foot in this wilderness. The team will
fly in and land on the ice about 100 kilometres from their
destination. Their task will be to ski across this harsh but
beautiful environment hauling all their supplies for at
least 7 days.
All applicants receive full Arctic training. They will learn
how to avoid the hazards of frostbite; how to navigate their
way through blizzards and avoid being eaten by hungry polar
They will have a few things in common:
• A fascination to see the polar wilderness before it
• A powerful motivation to put themselves to the test in one
toughest challenges imaginable
• The courage to invest a sizeable sum of money in
themselves to prove
what they are really worth.
If you think you are up to the challenge and want to put
yourself forward for selection, contact John at
or phone 01992 81 4806.
A word of advice – move fast if you
are interested, as only two places on the team remain.
Well you have seen it on the TV – how about doing it
We are taking a group of execs away in February next year
for a true African Adventure - Trek to the Summit of Mount
Kenya – a wind down with some white water rafting - followed
by a climb of the famous Mount Kilimanjaro. Worried about
your lack of climbing experience? No problem – if Chris
Moyles, Cheryl Cole and others can do it, so can you!
