WILDERTRAILS DESIGN - ADDING AN
EDGE TO OUTBOUND TRAINING
There seems to exist a common misconception
that outbound is nothing more than a walk in the jungle, a few
jumps through hoops and a campfire. Nothing could be further
from the truth.
At Wildertrails, every outbound programme
is carefully designed and executed to achieve specific organizational
goals. Our outdoor specialists and HR experts, in consultation
with representatives from your company, analyse and understand
your organizational needs, and then draw up a programme designed
to deliver specific HR objectives.
Wildertrails offers you the benefit of a specialized
outbound team consisting of outdoor experts and process facilitators
who are leaders in their field. The effectiveness of an outbound
programme depends largely on the experience and skill-sets of
the trainers, and at Wildertrails you get to work with a team
that has the capability to deliver the results you're looking
The activities at a Wildertrails programme
are structured exercises developed by outdoor specialists with
years of experience in the outdoors and in training, and are
designed to address specific HR issues. Participants go through
a number of activities that are specifically aimed at exploring
issues like leadership, team building, change management, conflict
resolution, risk-taking, goal setting, decision making, communication,
creativity and self-reliance. Each activity is also customized
to match your company's HR context, with the programme continuously
building on relevant themes for greater effectiveness. The exercises
are further fine tuned after interacting with the participants
in the field, so that each group is given activities best suited
to their requirement and capacity.
These exercises take the group through a series
of carefully graded activities that will set increasingly challenging
tasks as the camp progresses - gradually increasing the participants'
performance levels and moving the group closer to your HR goals.
The participants' responses to these situations become the raw
material for review.
The activities are followed by introspective
process sessions that encourage intense, meaningful reflection
and introspection by participants. The emerging data is dealt
with, with care and sensitivity, by experienced facilitators,
enabling the learning to be comprehensive. Facilitation also
helps the transference of learning to the organisational context.
To ensure individual attention for every participant, Wildertrails
insists on one process facilitator for every 10 to 12 participants
(2 for a group of 20), so that every single participant can
be observed and worked with.
Safety is of prime concern in any outdoor
activity, and plays a crucial role in the effectiveness of outbound
training. At Wildertrails, we have a qualified and experienced
safety team whose job is to take your mind off safety concerns
and focus on the activities. All safety and technical equipment
used in a Wildertrails programme like climbing gear, life jackets
and helmets, are tested and certified to meet stringent safety
