The term is broad enough to refer to any enterprise that is potentially fraught with risk, such as a business venture or a major life undertaking.

Outbound Training

Experiential learning or out bound learning is gaining popularity among Corporates. There are several reasons why the outdoor model is considered very effective training. Individual brilliance is no guarantee for success in today’s competitive environment. It takes different kinds of expertise to make a project succeed. Situation demand that we therefore work together and that’s why experiential learning will be effective.

Whether we hear a lecture or watch a video or read a book, our learning is "based" on those experiences. Unfortunately we remember 20% of what we hear, 50% percent of what we see and 80% of what we do as Confucius said:




We face the major block in every difficult and uncertain situation

  • FEAR
  • PAIN

We need to deal with these blocks every time they arise before we can successfully complete a difficult task or handle a difficult situation. These blocks can occur several times during our journey through life and they have to be dealt with everytime.Outbound learning addresses these important issues.
