Team Spirit - Getting there together
How do you and a group of highly motivated specialists get to the summit together? How do you create a working team spirit under pressure and with a tight time budget? How do you put a management team together that can lead the others to the summit – even throughout hard times?
Mountaineer and extreme athlete Steve Kroeger has been giving workshops for many years. In his workshops, he shows participants how to deal with these kinds of challenges. He knows the pitfalls that teams can face. Steve Kroeger’s workshops take place far away from any business hotel conference room. The motivation coach is a hands-on man and gets down to workshop business on top of Africa’s highest mountain: Mount Kilimanjaro. International companies send their leaders and top managers to Steve Kroeger exactly for this reason. It may unusual, but it is a very effective method that has proven extremely successful.
The experienced Alpinist knows the success factors that are needed for a group of individualists heading to the same summit. One for all and all for one! Mountaineering offers illustrative structures that apply to the economy and to success-oriented management and the set-up of teams and departments. The basic requirement is the clear goal: the summit. In order to get there successfully, there are certain factors that play a role: competence, mutual agreement, team spirit and a knowledge of every individual’s personal abilities that can be utilized within the team.
Ultimately, a summit ascent is like a normal day on the economic horizon: it doesn’t always go according to plan. Then, all that counts is best performance under extreme conditions, summoning of team spirit and remaining a group that works and sticks together throughout despite on-going problems. These exceptional circumstances require communication that leads to split-second decisions, just as within business.

Succes Factors in times of Change
Time seems to be racing and there is no sign of it slowing down. Once we have reached a summit, there is little time to enjoy the moment. Teams are just as much subjected to on-going change. Fluctuation, new tasks or fusions ask great flexibility of companies, organisations and every single one of us.
Motivational speaker Steve Kroeger knows of these factors and of their side effects: he has vivid recollections of both. As a mountaineer and having climbed some of the highest summits in the world, Steve Kroeger knows that even the best plan can fizzle out in the blink of an eye if the weather turns, the equipment fails or people do something unexpected. These adjustments and changes were often minor, for example, route changes. But then, there were life and death situations – situations that leave their mark and enrich your wealth of experience.
The economy is privy to these ever-changing circumstances. Diversity Management implies diversification and the challenges that go with diversification, for example, diversity in team constellations. If a company strives to stay at the top, it requires constant adaptation and a willingness to learn. This includes taking market changes and political conditions into consideration, too. Plans are put to the test every day and sometimes require complete or partial corrective measures. This calls for great flexibility from everyone involved.
Keynote speaker Steve Kroeger understands the art of comparing extreme sports to economic management processes. He uses practical examples to illustrate how important inner readiness is when we intend on learning from others. He has learnt how to stay focussed even when things have changed around him, and he has come to understand the importance of reflecting ones strengths. Speed is sometimes of the essence, particularly when it comes to avoiding a fall and sticking to a goal no matter how turbulent things become.

Making the right decisions when under pressure
Everyday professional life is like climbing a mountain. It’s when you are at a great height that personal bests are needed there and then. It’s about making the right decisions when under pressure. It’s just like mountaineering: wrong decisions high up can have fatal consequences. The same goes for everyday professional life.
