Who Should Attend
Leadership is not a position or a title. It is a choice that is available to everyone. When embraced, it has the potential to transform lives, organizations and communities. Leadership development is a journey. Let’s embrace every step.
The Other Everest Masterclass is designed for anyone who is committed to taking their leadership ability to a new level of excellence. Regardless of your title, if you are committed to amplifying your ability to influence others, enhance your leadership ability and are committed to take on greater leadership responsibilities within your organization, you will find value from this experience. Whether you are a CEO entrusted with an entire company, a supervisor committed to building a great team, a middle manager who oversees a division, a front-line healthcare professional, an entrepreneur, a parent, a coach, a teacher, a community volunteer, or a citizen dedicated to making a difference, we all have the potential to lead, to influence, to impact, to improve the world around us.
The program welcomes individuals or teams. Attendance by multiple company representatives will foster teamwork, amplify the program’s impact, and enable participants to continue supporting one another’s leadership development after the program ends. In order to realize maximum benefit from the Masterclass, organizations should consider sending at least two participants who can support each other and be an effective force for change.
The journey toward authentic leadership requires discovering your personal aspirations, strengths, and weaknesses—including aspects of your life history, identity, or current leadership style that may be helping you or holding you back. During the program, you must be ready to share with your peers in a deeply personal way—be willing to trust, expose your fears, offer feedback, and accept others’ input with an open mind. All information you share will remain strictly confidential. For a complimentary call to see if you are right for this Masterclass, Contact Us.

Session VIII. Inspire Authenticity
The way we have been working isn’t working. Demand is exceeding our capacity. The ethic of “more, bigger, faster” exacts a series of silent but pernicious costs at work, undermining our energy, focus, creativity, and passion. This concluding session offers a unique approach to leadership that inspires and reenergizes the lives of the people we serve so we’re both fulfilled and productive – on and off the job.

“Thank you to you David for the safe environment you created within the group. I believe everyone is able to share their own personal stories with the full support of the group. David’s technical knowledge and experience along with … relatable stories made for a memorable experience. I highly recommend to anyone looking to do a deep dive into authenticity.”
“I have been plying my trade for 42 years and during that time I have been exposed to more speakers (for lack of a better description) than you can possibly imagine. You name them, I’ve seen them: Covey, Robbins (yeah, I walked on the coals), Leo Bascaglia (41 years ago), the list goes on and on. In those 42 years I can honestly say from the heart that I have NEVER had as positive and enriching an experience as I have in the Masterclass. Never is a huge word but it applies here. It is all so powerful and valuable. I cannot find the words to thank you enough.“
“I would highly recommend the (virtual)Masterclass program provided by David Irvine. After 25 years of being a CEO, and with the significant challenges we are currently experiencing, I knew I was ready for a “reset”- I just didn’t know what that entailed. Three sessions into the Masterclass, I started to get a strong sense of what my “reset” was all about. David did an exceptional job of reminding me why I was a leader in the first place and the responsibility I have to not only lead with my head but, more importantly, to lead with a strong sense of empathy and honesty.“
“David Irvine offers much wisdom on how to maximize personal and professional impact with authentic presence. Fostering an authentic attitude of abundance, growth, and accomplishment has helped me transform my ability to lead with impact and longevity. The inspiring Moving Forward Together program helped me develop my leadership style through focused presentations, self-reflection, and interactions with a wide range of organizational leaders.“
