What Is Corporate Outbound?
Corporate Outbound Training (OBT) is a training methodology rooted in experimental learning in the outdoors and is organized in an open-air environment distant from common settings, like a tour to a green countryside with serene terrain, trees, rocks and hills.
Outbound Training comprises of an informal surroundings, bounded by nature and silence, where individuals turn more natural and thoughtful, leading to a comprehensive and effective learning process.
Success, performance and behaviors all through outbound training activities are reviewed via a process of discussion known as debriefing, to recognize behaviors that boost performance or pave way to failure or low performance.
Strategies are developed to cope with factors that obstruct, and these strategies are then put to practice in the exercises that follow, to analyze their efficiency and eventually help the employees learn to change behaviors or processes back at office.
In the Outbound Training Session, the facilitator instructs the group to achieve a target, but does not give details on how to productively complete the activity. Participants need to work to get a solution independently and together as a team, and should communicate and gain knowledge from each other so as to be successful. The learning initiates with the experience leading to reflection, conversation, study and evaluation of the entire experience.
The prime focus with the Outbound Training approach is to implant skills on organizational needs that include Team Building, Effective Communication, Leadership, Strategic Thinking, Conflict Management, Quality Improvement, Mentoring as well as Talent Development.
