  • The most universally effective form of leadership training— one that is used by NASA, Harvard Medical School, and the Wharton School of Business—is the Outdoor Education model. Characteristics such as self-esteem, confidence, self-efficacy, leadership, and even academic achievement show long-term improvement after the completion of an outdoor education course. These measures are the foundation for a creative individual, someone with the gall to create and innovate.
  • David Kolb Ph.D. from Harvard University, founder and chairman of Experience Based Learning Systems, Inc. (EBLS) developed the Experiential Learning Model (ELM) which is composed of four elements: concrete experience, observation of and reflection on that experience, formation of abstract concepts based upon the reflection, testing the new concepts.
  • Research by Eaton (2000) found that outdoor learning experiences were more effective for developing cognitive skills than classroom based learning.
  • With the premise that experiential learning has valuable learning implications, we conduct training that uses simulation techniques and application of behavioural competencies in various team activities, behavioural observations and feedback, helping participants translate and maintain learning in daily practices.
  • Our expert psychologist and trainers provide training and feedback that focuses on giving insights into our most seemingly automatic behaviours, and their repercussions on our functioning.
