AN INTRODUCTION TO WILDERTRAILS CORPORATE OUTBOUND
WHAT IS OUTBOUND? The concept of using the outdoors as a tool in management training was first developed in the 1940's by Dr. Kurt Hahn The outdoors has many lessons for city people which will enhance their personal thresholds as well as group thresholds. An established corporate training tool in Western countries, Out Bound Training is gaining increasing popularity in India
The crux of OBT lies in taking a group of people away from their normal environment into the outdoors, and placing a new, unfamiliar set of challenges before them, in the solving of which a whole lot of new equations are thrown up. The programme works on the principle that when a team is thrown together in wilderness or adventure settings, where they have to fend for themselves and meet challenges together, there is growth in many directions. WHAT IS OUTBOUND?
WHAT MAKES OUTBOUND EFFECTIVE In a tranquil and informal environment, up close with nature, people are found to become more introspective and uninhibited, paving the way for a complete and effective learning process. After spending a few days in an outdoor situation, team members tend to bond together in a way that is impossible in an urban office atmosphere.
WHAT MAKES OUTBOUND EFFECTIVE Additionally, in unfamiliar environments and unpredictable situations, stretched beyond their normal comfort zones, people tend to lose their inhibitions, shed their masks and become more receptive to learning. In the environment thus created, it becomes possible for a sensitive and experienced facilitator to identify strengths and trouble areas, and suggest new coping behaviour.
