Faculty

Amit Chowdhury, alumnus of IIM, Ahmedabad, Jadavpur University, Kolkata mountaineer, parachutist and paragliding enthusiast who has led several expeditions to the Himalayas including Mount Everest for which he was awarded the Vishist Seva Medal by the President of India. To deliver impactful training programs he uses his knowledge of how successful ascents are made by well skilled, disciplined and high performing teams to.achieve their goals. How does one lead a special breed of people; how do leaders elicit “peak” performance from themselves, their people and their processes. How do they clarify a common vision of their chosen summit. How do they plan their route and allocate roles and responsibilities to reach their peak. How do they take responsibility for developing the skills, knowledge and “climbing fitness” to reach their destination. How can team members be bound by the strength of their belief that their ascent is worthy and that they will succeed.

Amit brings with him valuable experience and leadership lessons from his expeditions and shares his experience of leading successful teams to climb Mount Everest, parachute into most difficult situations and fly around the world in microlight aircraft. Future leaders benefit enormously from his insights into leading high performing teams into unknown and ambiguous situations, making the links between what he does so successfully on the mountain with business today, you will be inspired, thrilled and more than ready to climb your own Everest
