Why Experiential?


Why Outbound Experiential Learning?
a)   A tranquil setting coupled with a break from the routine gives participants the required "manifestation” to be able to introspect and analyze them-self.
b)    As facilitators we create situations which invite participants to discover their own answers to challenging issues.
c)   Participants are challenged to think critically, communicate effectively, solve problems creatively, display leadership, take risks, and actively support teammates.

Team Development - An Overview
a)   A team is a collection of individuals directing their energies towards a defined goal, which is achieved through their joint, complementary efforts.
b)   If the team is working well, there’s energy, synergy and enthusiasm. People are there because of what they can contribute, not because some organization chart says so. If the team wins, each individual wins.
c)   Teams don’t ‘gel’ overnight. They struggle through various stages of growth, and if they emerge triumphant at the end, it will be because they’ve worked at it.

Goals, Strategies, Priorities and Action
a)   Successful teamwork starts with the question: ‘What are we trying to achieve?’ Unless members of the team are agreed on this fundamental point, they will be pulling in different directions and wasting their energies
b)   Within the team, there may be conflicting visions, priorities and personal goals to be reconciled. Beyond the team, there are pressures and opportunities that need to be considered. Teams need time to explore the issues.
c)   The question cannot be answered once and for all. It will need to be reconsidered regularly as circumstances change. The team must be flexible in its working methods, and be prepared to review its strategies in response to new situations
d)   The process of establishing goals may be a painful one, as past experiences, assumptions and ways of working have to be challenged and perhaps replaced by more appropriate attitudes and methods.
                                                                                               
Nature of the programme
Management Development Outdoors is an experiential learning method that seeks to move away from the chalk and talk, learn-by-rote methods of traditional learning. Experiential learning is based on three proven facts:
a)   That people learn best when personally involved in the learning experience.
b)   Knowledge to be truly meaningful has to be discovered by the individual.
c)   People are more committed to learning when they are free to identify and pursue their own goals.

Experiential learning therefore places the emphasis on
a)   Direct personal experience
b)   Building an individual’s commitment to development
c)   Giving learners as great a responsibility as possible for drawing conclusion
