#86: Kate Oliver – Motorcycling Tour Guide in the Himalayas Inspiring Leadership with Jonathan Bowman-Perks MBE

    • Management

Kate Oliver is a motorcycle tour leader and leads tours in the High Himalaya in India, Sikkim and Nepal. She is also a qualified stone mason, a poet, writer and a member of Kellogg College Oxford Alumni where she studied for her Masters in Creative Writing and critical practice. Although she has received no formal leadership training she has been required to show inspirational leadership to take her customers on two week tours in the Himalaya on Royal Enfield Motorcycles where altitudes of up to 18 000 feet, meltwater crossings, rock falls and landslides are the norm. Coupled with altitude sickness, egos and ad hoc teams of strong willed but sometimes low skilled riders, she has learnt to be empathetic to enable her customers to put their egos aside, express their fears and overcome the considerable challenges they encounter. She is not inspired by any one person in particular and is wary of perpetuating the myths surrounding some of the ‘great’ leaders. Her leadership abilities have come from a variety of people she has encountered and of course by solving the people-problems she regularly faces on adventure motorcycle tours.
