* LEADING LIGHTS ANNOUNCES EXCLUSIVE TRAINING MODULE BASED ON THE SUCCESSFUL ‘TEAM ELLEN’ ROUND THE WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT
* EXCLUSIVE NEW LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR BUSINESS LEADERS AND TEAMS
* DEVELOPED IN CONJUNCTION WITH ELLEN MACARTHURíS OFFSHORE CHALLENGES SAILING TEAM
Ellen’s internationally acclaimed record-breaking journey to become the fastest solo sailor around the world provides the theme and content for a new set of learning experiences for business leaders and teams.
Working with members of the Offshore Challenges Sailing Team, Leading Lights have developed the official team story, ‘Record Breaking Teamwork’. The story shares the experiences, insight and teamwork lessons learned against the backdrop of Ellen’s race against time, from project inception to post-finish euphoria.
The training product is available in a number of formats, including a multi-media conference speech, a 1-day workshop and a team development programme aboard high performance yachts.
Mark Turner, CEO of Offshore Challenges Group, is excited about the value to business of this new training proposition: “Crossing the finish line of the solo round the world record attempt marked a milestone in what was already a two-year team project. There are so many parallels with the business world, and so many lessons to share from an environment that is very unforgiving on mistakes, and rewards first class teamwork, planning and preparation.”
Mark Denton, Managing Partner of Leading Lights, followed the Team Ellen story every step of the way: “It is fantastic to bring something unique, engaging and inspirational to the training arena to help today’s business leaders and teams enhance their performance. The Team Ellen workshop is a powerful development tool that can be applied at any level in any organisation and achieve results.”
