Professional

For current and aspiring leaders of the business world Duration 5 days

In Anakiwa, we choose challenge over comfort; commitment over chit chat; outdoor splendor over stuffiness; how to think over what to think. We let you embrace the unknown, look risk in the eye and back yourself to succeed.

We are forging a new generation of leaders with resilience, adaptability, confidence and self awareness that the business world now needs.

Developed and delivered by expert instructors and facilitators, we deliver real changes, in real time, in real situations for application to real business challenges. This is professional learning that lasts a lifetime.

Learn in our world, how to lead in yours.

I came to Outward Bound with a mixture of excitement and apprehension. It surpassed all of my expectations. I learned more about myself in these eight days than I have over the past ten years.

Programme

OB Pro will put you in real situations with real consequences. You'll take on a series of experiential challenges, using the bush, mountains and waterways of the Marlborough Sounds as your classroom.  You'll work through situations while tramping, camping, at sea and in the water, and during height activities, that will all challenge you physically, mentally and emotionally. These outdoor activities are integrated with workshop sessions led by our expert facilitators who will help you maximise the impact of your learnings and assist you in embedding these skills back in your workplace.

Outcomes

In preparation for the programme, you will complete a TMI profiling tool online that will identify your preferred working style. As part of this pre-course work, your manager or supervisor is asked to provide feedback on you, along with selected peers.

The outcomes of these tools are presented to participants during workshop sessions where they will learn about their own working style and others, and witness these styles come to life during the activities and challenges. Through integrating the same unique learning outcomes we’ve delivered since 1962 with experts in professional development, you'll emerge with resilience, adaptability, confidence and self awareness.
