Learning from the Outside

LEADERSHIP could be a rather tricky beast and for executives and managers, it's is an extremely important skill but developing it in the workplace can be difficult, when day-to-day tasks, meetings, and other rote activities get in the way.

The word experiential is understood as learning and development achieved through personally determined experience and involvement, rather than on received teaching or training, typically in group, by observation, listening, study of theory or hypothesis, or some other transfer of skills or knowledge.

GET OUT, GET GOING

Leaders are considered to be experts with a specific knowledge set and skills that influence the goal direction of followers. All it takes is moving away from the everyday grime and get ready the team ready for an action packed adventure full of fun and learning at the same time.

Taking your team away from the boring walls and cliché indoor training sessions of the office space to a place for an adventure filled team building session amidst nature, could turn out to be an experience of a lifetime for each every individual.

1. DEVELOPS PEOPLE AS INDIVIDUALS - These programs help develop people as individuals, rather than simply transferring arbitrary capabilities, there is a rise in people's confidence, self-esteem, personal strengths, and crucially a rounded sense of purpose and fulfillment which fundamentally improve attitude, life-balance and emotional well-being.

2. IMPROVES COMMUNICATION - with so many team based activities in the program, it demands all participants to enjoy each moment but as an active team member. It not only allows them to open up with everyone more easily to be able to execute the task in hand, but also gives them an experiential lesson on functioning and conquering as a team but in the most fun filled way.

3. LEARN DIRECTLY FROM MOTHER NATURE - The popularity of these active adventure outdoor programs stems from their experiential nature. These programs have the advantage of placing participants in a learning setup in the lap of nature’s bounty, whereby the learner is required to engage in direct experience in order to increase skills or enhance a particular skill.

4. ENHANCES LEVELS OF PERCEPTION - Most of the time leaders are so glued to your desk, and so glued to everything that's going on, that they may lack proper perspective, in a workplace environment. It is the fresh air, different environment and out of the boardroom that gives people an opportunity to really look at themselves from the outside in, about how they are perceived as a leader.

5. CSR AND COMMUNITY IMPACT - It is the small changes in the initiatives that we take, further refining them not only to benefit people on an individual level but in a way that impacts the community on a whole. It is with these outdoor experiential programs that the office going crowd from corporate sectors can look at nature from close quarters. These programs give an opportunity to the workaholics to slow down and look at what is around them and triggers in them the need to take control of the damage in the environment. It makes them more responsible and aware. While on one hand they are able to appreciate nature’s beauty, on the other hand they receive an insight of need of the hour to take care of the planet and everything that it has to offer so unconditionally.

Lakewood / Golden Team Building in Denver

We've been getting calls lately from companies on the west side of Denver looking for team building and group adventures.  As most locals know, Lakewood & Golden are great towns as they border the Front Range / Rocky Mountains, and have great access to Jefferson County Open Space Parks and other local outdoor scenes.  One of our favorite places for Denver Team Building is Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood.  It's roughly a 20 minute drive from both the Denver Tech Center and Downtown Denver, and you feel like you're in a remote canyon in Colorado.  And because the weather in Denver is great throughout the year, we are able to run programs in our All Seasons Adventures and Summer Adventure Series all year long.  Give us a call at 970-668-8900 if you want to bring a group to the park for a corporate team building program.  Here are photos from our most recent adventure...
