In the many different extreme environments that many adventurers and extreme athletes put themselves in, their decision-making becomes vital. In certain situations, it can be the difference between succeeding or failing and in the extreme – living or dying. It is as brutal and binary as that. There is often no room for error and in some circumstances limited access to be rescued or saved.

In the extreme, every decision can have a severe consequence.

“Peak Dynamics was a key part in helping us prep for our expedition to Guyana. We referenced what we learnt so many times on the river – the idea of having a common goal and how best to make decisions as a group. It was an invaluable learning process for us all. I would thoroughly recommend Peak’s training. I learnt so much about myself and how best to function in a team. Thank you Sandy.”

Decision-Making is about:

  • The ability to accurately observe what is taking place in a situation or circumstance
  • The ability to determine the best solution to a situation
  • The ability to move to execute the best solution

Decision-Making is to see, to determine and to do

At Peak Dynamics, we have worked with lots of different teams and have a wealth of knowledge which we share with extreme adventurers and extreme athletes.

We have helped 4 teams break 4 different extreme World Records or World Firsts, in the past two years

As a starting point, we will use a sophisticated judgement assessment tool to help individuals build an awareness of their decision-making style, preferences and blind spots. Our experience has been used by Red Bull athletes and numerous other extreme athletes, as a stand-alone assessment tool or as part of decision-making development intervention.

Human values can be revealed in what we believe, what we feel and what we say. However, the most important manifestation of our values is the choices we make, the decisions we make.

We work with extreme adventurers and their teams to identify what can directly impact that decision-making and improve the quality of the outcome.
