Decision-making workshops


Our workshops teach teams how to make crucial decisions so they can achieve powerful goals, work more effectively together and become antifragile in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world.


For groups of 5 -1000+, these highly-interactive workshop use experiential learning to take you through Grant's world-first expeditions making the key decisions under pressure throughout the journey.

We focus on three key area's of decision-making:

 / WHAT are the critical decisions you need to be making?

/ HOW can you make the most effective decisions together?

/ The decision-making CULTURE your team needs to develop? 



/ Experience critical decisions impacting your team's ability to perform and innovate

INTO THE UNKNOWN is based on Grant 'Axe' Rawlinson's exploratory expedition to travel from Singapore to New Zealand by human power.  Designed to help teams experience and develop the critical decisions and skill sets needed to embrace the 'Explorer's Mindset', how to lead your fiel by being unique.  Your teams will leave the workshop having experienced one of the most incredible journeys of their lives, feeling inspired to work together and having learnt so much about themselves and their team-mates in a way they have never before experienced.



/ Experience critical decisions impacting your team's ability to navigate complexity


Through a simulated Mt. Everest expedition experience, we teach High Performance Business Teams how to make crucial decisions that impact their ability to thrive in uncertain, complex environments and work more effectively together. 


Authentic, unique and exciting, all scenario's are dramatically presented through professionally produced video. The outcomes are based on real-world events on multiple expeditions, which  reinforce the learning in a way your team has never before experienced!  Are you ready?
