  1. 1. ©Eagles Learning, All rights reserved Adventure Activity, Experiential Learning, Business Simulation Why Adventure Activity, Experiential Learning? A. A tranquil ambience coupled with a break from the routine environment gives participants the required "manifestation” to be able to introspect and analyze them-self. B. As facilitators we create situations which invite participants to discover their own interpretation & solutions to challenging issues. C. Participants are challenged to think differently, communicate effectively, solve problems creatively, display leadership, take risks, and actively support teammates. One of the ways in which Experiential Learning is executed, is through orienteering. Orienteering draws from the learnings of strategy and tactics applied in sports. Participants of the learning intervention are placed in a stimulating and uncertain environment where the need is to achieve a pre determined objective. Experiential Learning uses multiple simulation formats to address differing requirements. For instance, it can be designed as a leadership/management development program, a team building program and even a program designed to develop the winning instinct amongst sales team. Team synergy program would address areas of learning such as team bonding, communication skills, team effectiveness. apart from all this, customised format help participants understand the value of tasks such as mission definition, strategy formulation, operations, contingency planning and last but not the least, it address issues such as conflict, stress, time management and crisis handling. Experiential Learning becomes especially unique as it also captures emotions like disappointment, stress, anger, enthusiasm and joy, apart from skills, to facilitate the process of translating learning into practice Some of the exciting tools used during Experiential Learning
  2. 2. ©Eagles Learning, All rights reserved Team Development - An Overview A. A team is a collection of individuals directing their energies towards a defined goal, which is achieved through their joint, complementary efforts. If the team is working well, there‟s energy, synergy and enthusiasm. B. People are there because of what they can contribute, not because some organization chart says so. Teams don‟t „gel‟ overnight. They struggle through various stages of growth, and if they emerge triumphant at the end, it will be because they‟ve worked at it. Goals, Strategies, Priorities and Action A. Successful teamwork starts with the question: „What are we trying to achieve?‟ Unless members of the team are agreed on this fundamental point, they will be pulling in different directions and wasting their energies. B. Within the team, there may be conflicting visions, priorities and personal goals to be reconciled. Beyond the team, there are pressures and opportunities that need to be considered. Teams need time to explore the issues. C. The question cannot be answered once and for all. It will need to be reconsidered regularly as circumstances change. The team must be flexible in its working methods, and be prepared to review its strategies in response to new situations. D. The process of establishing goals may be a painful one, as past experiences, assumptions and ways of working have to be challenged and perhaps replaced by new norms. Nature of the Workshop Management Development Outdoors is based on three proven facts: A. People learn best, when they are personally involved in the learning experience. B.
