Work with Us
The Climbing Connection's approach is built upon 4 pillars: Community, Individuals, Challenge, Integration. We view these pillars as connected and believe each builds upon the others. Our approach has seen success with individuals of all ages from a wide variety of backgrounds.
Humans rely upon one another to grow and explore. Modern culture has focused on individuals as lone entities, when in reality, humans tend toward collective nature. At the basis for all TCC programs is a supportive community. We build compassionate, communicative, curious teams that offer a safe foundation from which individuals can launch out and explore individual work; always knowing their community will catch them if they fall.
Once individuals know they are protected by their community, we challenge them to dive into their internal worlds. Here, individuals get a sense of their personal motivators, stressors, ways they assess risk, and what they do with fear and disappointment. We use these experiences to clearly communicate our likes and dislikes, along with relate to one another.
Building upon the safe base and intrapersonal understanding, we push individuals and teams to define their edge and push past it. We like to take well thought out risks, explore what we believe is “impossible”, and come up with tangible solutions to larger-than-life problems. Challenge is all about understanding discomfort and being ok with it.
Once we’ve dissected the pillars of community, identity, and challenge, we put it back together and apply this new knowledge in leadership initiatives. Our leaders take the time to appreciate and understand the team they work with, they value individual strengths as part of a larger collective, and they use their soft skills to drive vision in a sustainable and impactful way.
