Everest Resilience:  Overcoming Adversity and Reaching High Goals

During his first Everest attempt in 2015, Jim and his team were trapped at Camp 1 by massive earthquakes and avalanches.  After recovering from this huge setback, he trained even harder and returned in 2017 to summit Mt. Everest.

Work, life and climbing always include change, challenge and uncertainty.  Struggling up Mount Everest reveals how resilience allows you to overcome adversities and can reach high goals.  In this thrilling keynote, Jim shares hard-won resilience lessons on how you can:

  • Adapt to change
  • Face uncertainty
  • Overcome challenges
  • Recover from setbacks
  • Cultivate a resilient mindset
  • Leverage your personal resilience
  • Increase your resilience through post-traumatic growth
  • Persevere and become more
