DO Corporate Profile


Published on

“Destination Outdoors” endeavours to provide corporate-training programmes using outdoor experiential learning. This facet deals with Experience Based Training & Development (EBTD). This experiential learning combines interactive business simulations and games with serious learning and is an extremely powerful medium for imparting training in new skills and helping individuals to improve existing ones. All this is simulated through theatre, music, adventure simulations, role plays, water, CSR & navigational simulations. The methodology is based on \'real\' experiences and moves away from the theoretical and rigid learning methods of traditionalist education and training. A "shared experience" that involves working together on tasks which are unfamiliar and which require a high degree of interdependence quickly builds trust and rapport across the group. To rely on others in ways which are not customary for individuals in a normal working environment generates mutual respect and support often far beyond anything previously experienced by colleagues in the workplace. With Destination Outdoors, you can expect to be engaged in a powerful learning process that will provide your teams with the chance to learn new skills and then to practice those skills. You can also expect to develop new methods for goal setting, building trust, creativity, customer orientation and effective communication apart from core skill sets to gain optimal performance from your associates.
