Join us in congratulating Simon on his accomplishments and representing Australia at an Olympic level!

 Leadership Training & Development

Our Training and Development Coordinator Stephanie Sellar-Peam recently attended Vail Resorts’ Leadership Essentials and Basecamp programs from the corporate office in Broomfield and the resort locations of Vail and Breckenridge.

These programs have been designed to enable staff to develop a framework of leadership skills that expands their capacity to perform in leadership roles within Vail Resorts.   

Attendees delved into understanding the various individual leadership styles, how to communicate effectively and how to understand, engage, manage and develop talent in our teams. Fellow participants were people from all resorts, all positions and all backgrounds coming together to undertake their own unique, self-directed leadership journeys. Facilitators each day shared valuable insights into how and why these programs work so well for Vail Resorts staff and how their own leadership journeys have shaped the way they bring key concepts to light.

While moose sightings and gondola rides seemed a far cry from Perisher, it became evident that we were all speaking the same language. And Steph readied herself to depart after a week of intense and fast-paced lessons and activities, while already thinking about what she was bringing home to Perisher. Steph has also added “With my valuable experience from the past week in mind, and the support of a now international team, I look forward to taking the next steps of Perisher’s Leadership Development Program with you all!”
