Real Experiences for Achieving Corporate
||REACH is boulder morty's experientially-based professional
development course. Team-building / challenge courses are proven to be an extremely
effective and long-lasting approach to team management. This interactive approach is
an essential element in the development of strong, positive team dynamics.
|REACH is designed to meet your group's specific needs, interests and capabilities.
The program consists of a series of initiatives and obstacles, both in and out of
the climbing gym. These elements are designed to present both physical and mental
challenges with varying degrees of difficulty and risk under controlled conditions.
boulder morty's offers a stimulating, off-site environment - a refreshing change of pace
from a group's usual work surroundings - an experience which is productive and beneficial
to individuals and businesses.
||Most of the activities are group problem solving initiatives - participants are given
a clearly defined task to accomplish which requires a joint effort to complete.
Other challenges are individual problems, which require group encouragement to help insure
success. In one activity, one individual's weaknesses may be balanced by others'
strengths, and in another activity, the same individual's strengths may help offset
others' weaknesses. Ultimate success comes from taking advantage of the combined
physical and mental skills of the team.
|The challenge program facilitates the development and practice of teamwork through
communication, trust and acceptance of each participant's strengths and weaknesses.
It fosters problem-solving, leadership skills, determination and persistence to work
through a task to completion. Additionally, increased self-confidence, enhanced
self-image and a focus on success provides the potential for individual and group growth
||Each individual leaves with increased insight and knowledge about themselves and how
to handle problem situations as an individual, or as part of a group. The group
leaves with greater feeling of cohesiveness, and a greater understanding of the fact that
teamwork plus communication equals success. Lessons learned will be carried over to
the workplace, as will the group's ability to work as a team toward the accomplishment of
shared goals, thus increasing efficiency and productivity.
Specific Program Outline
|A typical session will begin with the group working towards letting down their guard,
which can be achieved through the use of "Ice Breakers". Ice Breakers are
activities which involve a minimal amount of risk and require little to no physical
props. They are designed to get individuals engaged with other members of the group
and to make each participant more comfortable to undertake the upcoming challenges.
||Once participants have warmed-up, the group will then identify personal and group
goals. At this point the group will move onto "Simple Initiatives", which
assist in achieving the day's objectives. The group will be presented with a clearly
defined task and will then have to plan and execute a strategy to complete the task.
These initiatives are low impact and require very little risk.
|After completing the simple initiatives, the group will then begin to work toward a
series of "Trust Activities". By this phase of the program, participants
will have developed an increased level of involvement and will be better prepared to focus
on the importance of trust. Trust activities require a higher level of risk and will
demand the full concentration and participation of every person involved. The group
will receive specific instruction, clearly defined and illustrated initiatives before
||The session will advance toward an increased level of trust throughout the remainder
of the program. Activities will continue to guide participants toward achieving the
desired personal and group goals. In addition, there will also be an increased level
of trust placed upon each individual. Activities will start as low elements, with
only hands-on spotting and will advance to higher elevation obstacles, requiring the use
of ropes and technical climbing equipment for additional safety.
|As the group completes each task, the facilitators will conduct a short debrief of
their process, asking individuals to give input regarding experiences thus far. Once
the group feels satisfied with the process, the facilitators will then move to the next
||At the conclusion of each say, the group will engage in a structured debrief of the
entire day's activities. This time allows for reflection on what they have
contributed to and received from the challenge program. It also facilitates the
connection of how these experiences relate to their work.
