‘A business succeeds or fails through the commitment of its employees.The key to this commitment is effectiveness: reaching the goal . . . via a well-tuned combination of the available human potential.’
‘Insight and a grasp on this human potential is exactly what Outward Bound® wants to work on with you -- by means of a very special approach. Because effectiveness is also key for us and begins with our choice of a working method.’
‘Outward Boundâ’ is a sailing term. It is the flag, which is hoisted by the captain when he knows that his ship and crew are ready to leave the safety of the harbor and venture upon the open sea. To be ‘Outward Bound’ is to be involved in a process of movement, exploration and change.
These days, ‘Outward Bound®’ is primarily recognized as the name of the international organization specialized in outdoor development training, where adventurous activities are used to create opportunities for personal and interpersonal development.
Our focus is on people who wish to learn and grow, whether on a team or professional level (teambuilding and team development, coaching, leadership, personal effectiveness) or on a personal level (personal growth, relational competence).
Based on the philosophy of experiential learning, we work on these objectives via tailored activities in an outdoor framework. Skilled process facilitation during debrief sessions ensures the learning outcomes.
Outward Bound® offers custom designed programs for organizations and teams from the profit as well as the non-profit sectors and has worked with a wide variety of Belgian, Dutch, French, European and international companies.
