Good Managers are not born they are developed by training.
Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it. It is significant to autograph your work with excellence. To achieve this excellence, the continuous learning must become a habit. Incidentally, the effectiveness of the learning process goes up during corporate outbound training sessions, primarily because you are away from your routine and secondly, you can meet different people or understand your own team from different perspectives.
The training programs on an Island will set the right base for experiential learning. An open and relaxed mind will pave way for a lifetime learning experience and, in turn, help to achieve better results and work culture. Sri Lanka, The pearl of the Indian Ocean, has got beautiful beaches in the south and the east, tea plantations and mountains in the middle, several amazing historical sites, and trekking in the north of Kandy.
Sri Lanka has the wonderful choice of accommodation, beach resorts to tastefully converted tea planters’ bungalows to small boutique villas, hotels in wildlife-rich areas and eco-friendly resorts where the corporate team outings can be planned very well. Such training program is one great opportunity where an individual gets experiential learning by way of various team building activities.
The corporate training programs are designed to bring in the following benefits:
“No one can whistle a symphony; it takes a whole orchestra to play it” – H.E. Luccock
Likewise, the achievements in an organization are the results of the combined work by each individual in the company. Each member of the team should carry the same spirit, ownership and mindset to work as a team. As a leader, building the desire, willingness of people to work together and help each other are important. The corporate outbound training modules always are designed to enhance the team spirit so that the teams achieve functional and organizational objectives. Trebound organizes such team building activities in huge external venues which can accommodate smaller to larger groups.

As a leader and a team player in a corporate setup, Leadership and delegation play a vital role. There are different styles/types of leadership- few tend to lead from the front, few from behind and a few works along. The corporate outbound training helps to identify, choose and enhance their own style of leadership. A leader has to be an entrepreneur, an innovator, and an inventor.
The speed of the boss (Leader) is the speed of the team
The formula for success in all walks of life is to do better what we have been doing. Outbound Training are typically simulated with outdoor locations to help the teams to increase the quantity and quality of what they do. The Pyramid Building, Raft Building, Drum Jam sessions are a few simple yet the most effective outbound training activities which help in time management, cross-functional cooperation, project planning and team dynamics.
Necessity is the Mother of Invention
The above statement holds good in situations where there are no other options, and you are pushed to think and take up new ways of doing things. During the outbound training too, an individual or a team is required to accomplish a certain task in the given time, with the given resources and the series of methods chalked out for them. The challenge doesn’t end at one task and leads them to the next challenge. The repetition of such actions over and over will create a link in the brain to look for an alternative to overcome the issues.
Creativity is one of the essential traits a team should possess. The team showcases better performance at the workplace where new challenges and obstacles are faced on a day to day basis. The games like The Actuator, Treasure Hunt and Paint the Canvas are some of the games that challenge and bring out the creative side of the team.
Creativity arises from our ability to see things from many different angles - Keri Smith
The corporate outbound training will require the team to think out-of-the-box and not be dependent on the comforts or the tools of familiar surroundings. This helps in developing crisis management skills.
“It’s amazing what one can do when one simply has to”-C.S.Lewis
The challenging situations and difficult circumstances actually propel humans to achieve their optimum abilities. The team building games such as F1 Challenge, Double Dragon, Junkyard Sales help the teams to adapt to the given situation and achieve the desired results. Such traits are essential in the corporate houses to bring about a win-win situation for both the employees and the employer.
The team building activities simulate a situation which naturally nudges out hidden skills and talents that employees might have. The training methodology is achieved by taking their employees out of the confines of their safe working environment and placing them in the unfamiliar environment of nature.
