(NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY) – He’s part of a record-setting climb of the world’s tallest mountain, and now Alan Mallory (photo attached) is coming to Cobourg to help local workplaces conquer their own Everest to achieve business success.
Mallory is a noted author and professional development coach who will lead a day-long workshop called Reaching New Heights in Human Performance and Leadership. The event runs from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. May 9 at the Cobourg Lions Centre, and is presented by Safe Communities Northumberland and the Workplace Wellness in Northumberland committee.
Reaching New Heights is a fitting name for the event, since Mallory – along with his father, brother and sister – set a world record as the first family of four to reach the summit of Mount Everest in the spring 2008. Their two-month expedition to the top of the world was filled with many physical and mental challenges in some of the roughest, most extreme conditions imaginable.
Mallory now shares his experience with audiences around the world to show them how to overcome their own Everest and develop skills that are critical for business success. He is pleased to be coming to Cobourg to do the same with local workplaces.
“The powerful strategies and skills that contributed to our family’s achievement, especially during the intense and at many times critical situations, can be applied to all aspects of life, especially business,” says Mallory. “The workshop is an exciting journey both visually and emotionally, and it’s packed with many leadership and professional development lessons that attendees will remember and talk about for a long time.”
Key topics that Mallory covers in his workshop include: professional development and management skills in strategic planning, agile leadership, empowering people, effective communication, risk management, supporting positive mental health, and creating healthy and effective team dynamics.
“Climbing your own Everest is a big part of what I focus on with workshop participants,” Mallory explains. “It’s trying to steer individuals through the challenges of life, work, or their business, assist them to develop important skills for success, and help them achieve that feeling of elation and satisfaction when they’ve reached their goal.”
Cathy Cavanagh, a local organizer of the Reaching New Heights workshop, says Mallory is not to be missed. “Alan is a dynamic, engaging speaker who keeps his audience members on the edge of their seats,” she notes. “Alan’s experiences will give people the opportunity to use his knowledge and insight to improve the way they deal with their own challenges.”
