Taking employees’ outdoors, away from the workplace and engaging them in challenging tasks that need to be finished in a specific time frame is a form of training known as outbound training. It is a technique that enhances the efficiency of employees through experiential learning. Experiential learning is a process through which employees learn various skills by real-world, hands-on experiences. Then these developed skills are implemented at workplace to achieve business goals.
Corporate Outbound training is executed in following steps –
1) UNDERSTANDING THE NEED FOR TRAINING –
The training is provided on a particular theme or a particular problem. Manager and team’s problems are understood in depth and analyzed. To overcome these problems, corporate outbound training is required.
2) PROGRAM EXECUTION –
A learning design is finalized according to the need of learners and a facilitator is assigned who uses various methodologies to conduct different activities.
The facilitator asks questions to the learners after they have performed the activities. A proper analyzation of the whole training is done. It is assessed if the learners have learnt new skills that will fulfill their needs and meet the objective. De-briefing is a mandatory and essential step of outbound training.
ACHIEVING BUSINESS GOALS THROUGH CORPORATE OUTBOUND ACTIVITIES–
Outbound training helps the employees to be independent learners and independent decision makers. They learn to proficiently manage time and emotions, which increases their efficiency at work. This sort of training helps them face challenging situations at work front. Moreover, due to de-briefing sessions, employees maintain a transparent communication at every step of business. Everyone is aware and is working collectively towards the broader vision of the organization, eventually working towards a common goal. Besides they become efficient at crisis management, as they develop solution-oriented attitude due to outbound training. Unity becomes the predominant factor of the organization and as all the employees are aware of each other’s strengths and weaknesses, they help each other. There is trust within the team and the colleagues coordinate and cooperate with each other at business. In other words, a strong bond is formed within the employees after the outbound training session and hence they enjoy each other’s success as their own. In addition, ‘out of box’ thinking is also observed after the session. There is positivity in the atmosphere of the organization as after the outbound training session, all employees feel rejuvenated. They learn how to accept constructive criticism and use it as a means of self-development. They develop winning habits which is ultimately advantageous for the organization.
