In today’s globally competitive world that is wrought with change, sans the geographical limits and with the pressure to perform, the need of the hour is for smart thinking, swift action and effective people skills – qualities that are more effectively developed in an experiential setting than through classroom training.
Plato said, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”
Outbound programs have been found to be particularly effective in areas that involve interpersonal relationships, trust and bonding, communication of shared vision and goals, motivation, behavior modification in response to change, and personal effectiveness. These programs are usually conducted in wilderness sites far removed from human civilization. In a tranquil and informal environment, close to 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 with its attendant worries and stress. One of the most unique aspects of outbound training is that trainees are immediately able to see the consequences of wrong actions and can see the tangible difference that can be made by a change in thinking and behavior. Our trained facilitators enthusiastically help them to extrapolate the learning from these outdoor activities to their workplace.
A list of programs that organizations usually work well using the ‘Outbound’ methodology is given below:
- Sales Training
- Leadership Development
- Building the Team
- Problem Solving
- Creativity & Innovation
- Communication excellence
- De-stress program
We have explored locations in pristine wilderness areas across the mountains to deserts, beaches, dense jungles to Resorts. The cool air, distant from place of work are ideal for conduct of outdoor programs.
Our facilitators have extensive experience in conducting adventure sports such as:
- Rock climbing, Rappelling
- Flying Fox or Tiger lift
- River Crossing
- Para gliding
- Mountain biking
- Construction of burma/monkey bridges, Microlite flying etc.
- Treasure hunt
- Rescue operation

These combined with outdoor games is an exciting way of driving home the key aspects of team working, trust building, communication, managing change and overcoming fear.
The OBT has been used effectively to drive home the organizational values such as integrity, mutual respect, fairness, customer satisfaction, quality and made the participants live and experience the values. We can customize the programs to the levels of the participants in terms of age, gender, experience, fitness and needs of the organization.
We also organize adventure trips for companies where we arrange for accommodation, adventure & commuting. The package is customized according to clients’ needs and can be arranged nationally and internationally at the choicest locations.
