Pinnacle Pursuits' commitment during the impact of COVID-19 and beyond

Written by Jonathan Willcocks

Dear Friends, Clients and Adventure-Learners & Leaders,

Thank you so much for your ongoing support and commitment. As we all know, this is not an easy time for anyone as the concern for the impact of COVID-19 continues to grow and we are encouraged to practice social distancing, be at home, and quickly adapt to new ways of connecting, learning, and working together.

Firstly…we want you to know that we are thinking about you, your families, your livelihoods and your businesses at this time. We are all in this together and it’s in times of such challenge and adversity where our true selves, support for humanity, and true teamwork and leadership is revealed. I know we can do it.

Secondly…we want to let you know where we are at Pinnacle…as a company that is all about human-to-human connection, experiential group learning, and interactive team-building adventures, you can imagine the challenge we are currently facing with all programs and events being postponed for an uncertain period of time. However, amidst this ‘cri-sis’ (defn = ‘danger-opportunity’), we are committed to keeping our team healthy by following social distancing protocol and continuing our work remotely. We are choosing to use this time as an ‘opportunity’ to practice being true adventure-learners and leaders: literally practicing our core values like never before.

What does this mean for you?

We believe it’s time to explore new ways of working together to inspire our best selves. We want to embrace what lies ahead with a sense of strength, teamwork, purpose, and hope.

As a leading team-building and experiential training and consulting company, we are committed to helping people navigate during this time from a health and wellness perspective, work-related mindset, learning and leadership outlook. We will continue to make the best use of our knowledge, expertise and strengths to serve. We see our role as being a guide to help you and your people effectively connect, learn new skills, take action, lead, and grow together.

What could help you?

Focus on the ‘Important’ vs the ‘Urgent’. Usually we are so caught up in the ’Urgent’ that we don’t have time for the ‘Important’. Let this be the time for working on what’s most important - building a clear vision, clarifying our values, re-setting long-term goals, growing and developing your people, and learning innovative ways to become better at who you are, what you do, and why you do it.

In summary, use this as the perfect opportunity to REGROUP, RETHINK, AND RETOOL.

What can you expect from us?

To support this process and to support you where we can, our team has already begun producing content in the form of regular posts, articles and videos focussed on innovative ideas and ‘How To’ tips. Check out our first two articles on how to work effectively from home and maintaining positive mental and physical wellbeing when at home.

Expect upcoming topics to include:

  • Connecting Your People
  • Productive Remote Working Habits
  • Effective Communication
  • Learning & Leadership
  • Resilience
  • Creative Collaboration

      We welcome you to join in the conversation! You can do this by following our social media channels, below.
