The course uses the outdoor environment and teaching activities to encourage interpersonal skill maturation, and keys to team development. We use a multi-day expedition on land and water to foster deeper understanding of how key learnings can be directly applied to the participant’s own context.
The program is designed to enhance your professional flexibility: our outdoor activities are unique and exciting, through inspiring journeys of professional awareness and involvement in the natural world, participants cultivate resilience, leadership, connections and compassion. At the heart of this process is ‘experiential education,’ or learning by doing. The core of this process is the Outward Bound Method, which on top of the experiential learning cycle of plan-do-review uses the process of transfer during or after being exposed for an extended time to nature, teaching a valuable form of transcending experiences into real life learnings & actions.
You will have the opportunity to expand the knowledge of the trade, understanding the meta-level of a training. The situations are concrete rather than imaginary, and to be tackled “here and now”. Through these experiences the trainees learn self-awareness and discover insights about their own context and their character. We make sure that as a participant of the AToT/1 you will often switch between the roles of the participant, of the observer and of the facilitator.
