Custom Built Programmes

We offer corporate, management teams, councils, sports teams, armed services, basically any group interested in professional leadership and team development training. We provide custom built programmes that range from straightforward team building exercises through to challenges that will expose and build on weaknesses, identify and enhance strengths and reveal leadership skills. These challenges are specifically designed to act as metaphors for workplace situations allowing targeted feedback and transferable lessons.

All these activities provide both an outcome focused on specific team issues while encouraging generic team development skills.For more details about tailoring something specific for you contact us at contact@hillaryoutdoors.co.nz or call us on 0800 OUTTHERE
Leadership Development – 2 or 5 Day Programme

Philosophy

This programme focuses on the people side of leadership. Learning via indoor sessions and field based direct experience. By giving participant the knowledge and understanding and allowing them the opportunities for perfect practice. It enables participants to gain insight and feedback on their own leadership strengths and areas for development.

Objectives

  • Characteristics and attributes of an effective leader
  • Effective teams and cohesion via shared experiences and knowledge
  • Effective communication (including conflict resolution), problem solving skills and the art of delegation
  • Understanding the role of leadership – motivating and influencing others
  • Team development and the role of the leader
  • Aid in transferring experiences and learning back to the workplace

Programme Structure

The carefully sequenced outdoor activities follow a format of briefing, activity and debriefing. Many of the activities, designed by Hillary Outdoors, will address particular team skills, such communication and trust development. Some activities may be programmed that primarily build individual confidence and self-esteem. As the programme progresses and activities become more involved, a combination of team skills will be needed to complete them successfully. The activities are not a test of fitness or strength but will require participants to reflect on how they behave and cooperate with others and how to transfer this learning to the workplace.
