Of course, your employees shall return to work unharmed and healthy (physically and emotionally) after the training! At your outdoor workshop you should employ following zero-accident principles:
Even if the real risks of the activities are heading to zero,
work continues with perceived risk.
The higher safety need is always prior-ranking, that means
the "insecure” participant is the determining factor.
The safety systems are guided redundant (=twice).
Four eye principle: every essential grip is checked.
Every participant may say no or stop.
You would like to achieve maximum success! Following quality standards serve as a base:
It is understood that the better the preparation, the better your workshops!
The contents of your workshop should be experience oriented through active tasks, experimental games and transferable real situations. You should work process-oriented, that means contents and methods are adapted to the training dynamics.
Reflection and Transfer
It is our claim that the skills discovered and exercised out in the open even deliver benefits behind the desk in workaday life! Reflection and transfer therefore are a constituent part of the workshop.
After 1-2 months you should ask about implementation successes, possible resistances and open questions and express your point of view. Moreover, you should offer a revision sessions in the form of a follow-up or a monitoring of the team development processes in the form of a coaching or training.
