What we deliver
Our methodology in training stems from Experiential Learning. The participants "experience" the training.
After each Experience, the participants are led through a Session in which they Reflect, Share observations and Insights, relate their training experience to their real-world experiences at work, understand and analyse their behaviour patterns, feel a need to change some aspects of it, and Commit to desired changes through Concrete action.
The way we do it
The team participates in exciting adventure challenges and team tasks wherein they stretch their limits and test their perceptions. Once they have been through the experience, we create an environment of reflection through open ended questions that require a participant to dig deeper into the experience. Questions like
"What was the biggest challenge during the entire activity?
How did you overcome this?" encourage the participant to deliberate over the experience.
Insight follows reflection. This insight is all the stronger as it has come from the participant him/herself. The participant is then encouraged to share this insight with the group to further concretize this learning. The next step is the development of an immediate action plan.
Often some very deep and powerful insights have surfaced during our programs.
One such instance - "I realized that everywhere, be it at work or at home, I do not feel comfortable taking help from my collegues/juniors/wife/parents, but this activity taught me that we always need support from people around us. When I look back, all my achievements have actually not been mine alone, there are a number of people to who I owe my credits. So, I am going to thank them and I will be more open to extending and asking for help from now on."
This is an example of a life long learning which can then lead to conscious changes in behavior.
