Working with Ian has given our people a rich insight into what makes teams successful. From defining what success looks like to decision making, using Ian’s virtual adventures have allowed us to better understand how we work together and has given us the opportunity to have real life conversations and experience in making decisions and working together. Ian’s virtual adventures have allowed our group to engage and participate in a team work experience we would otherwise never be able to do. We don’t have the budget to climb Everest with our leadership team, or take a safari in South Africa, but Red Leaf’s Virtual Adventures have allowed us to have a taste of this real experience and left our leaders with confidence in their decision making processes and abilities.
It was great to have you back involved with our group again. All of the feedback has been terrific. Excellent job with both the facilitation and the framework of the session, as always!
Aligning our senior leadership across the region has always been important, even more so during recent times. Faced with limitations around face to face interaction, we pressed ahead with an online QBR. Ian Schubach from Red Leaf designed and delivered a two hour virtual adventure that helped highlight the importance of teamwork and cross boundary leadership in these times. What’s more, it was fun!
Thank you for an amazing African adventure – what an experience! It was truly an educational, fun, teaming experience that was very much enriched by your obvious passion and love for the animals. Ian, you are an outstanding guide. Your wisdom, enthusiasm and energy had us on the edge of our seats! The stories were heartfelt, and I believe we all connected deeply with the Tracker Academy and the mission they are on.
When Red Leaf began working with us they identified key areas of focus and guidance: re-defining leadership roles, faltering internal team communication, and confusion of company message. Red Leaf’s combination of engaging and emotive content combined with the tools to secure a long-term leadership and team framework, has really united our vision. We were given consistent follow up to bring us a collection of operations, to fulfil our focus of one company with one message.
