LIFE SKILLS
FOR WORK

Today’s young professionals must be creative thinkers, driven self-starters and possess the social skills needed to succeed in a collaborative work environment. Many first-time employees enter the workforce without the ability to self-manage, work in a team and lead others. Effective employees must not only possess the necessary business acumen, but also the strength of character and the personal and social skills to deal with complex problems presented in the business environment.

Our approach


An Outward Bound course is all about learning and the impact this has on the individual. This is achieved through skilful people working in an inspiring and challenging environment and applying an effective process.

Nature plays an essential role in our approach to student development. The intensity and immediacy of the outdoors provides an ideal situation for students to see real, immediate consequences to their actions. The setting helps embed learning in a meaningful and memorable way. From our own dedicated training venues, we use the sea, lakes and rivers on our doorstep as catalysts for changing behaviours.
We take teams of employees into unfamiliar natural environments and present them with a series of adventurous and challenging tasks which build the attitudes, skills and behaviours required to succeed. We reflect on these shared experiences along the way. Participants get the opportunity to experiment with, and embed new behaviours within the safety of the group. Because the learning is active and the analogy with behaviours at work is obvious, changed behaviours embed quickly and transfer easily to the workplace.
Our staff are passionate and expert educators. In addition to their outdoor certifications they possess academic qualifications in facilitation and coaching. They have the technical skills, maturity and experience to both support and challenge your staff during their Outward Bound experience.
