Adventure-Based Learning for Corporate Teams
ABL Programs for corporate leadership teams are designed to specifically meet the goals of the group or organization, give lasting results and fit your corporate culture. Our programs are designed to energize, inspire and reinforce teamwork concepts; our programs build relationships and remind teams that working together produces great results.
Teams are a basic unit of getting work done in any organization, regardless of size or industry. Many of today's issues leave employees unable to perform at their highest level. One way to reenergize your team is by offering the members and opportunity to work together on similar goals, outside of the office environment. The skills employees will learn together in a new environment, are then easily brought back to the office space. Human contact, collaboration, communication and support can improve performance and employee attitudes.
Your corporate team will work together on the FOCUS Challenge Ropes Course at Sweetser in Saco, Maine. The training will deliver several Behavioral Style Inventories, and incorporate Conflict Resolution Theory, Anger Management, Coaching and Team Development models which have been proven effective in working with a variety of teams.
