THE OUTBACK INITIATIVES PROCESS
Our programs for solo participants are generally for groups of 14-28. For the majority of the program, you will be divided into smaller teams of 6-8. Each team is led by a facilitator experienced in leadership development and team building.
Through consequence-based activities, teams learn the practical aspects of working with and leading people, as well as making decisions with limited time, information and resources. Every activity is followed by a debrief that addresses lessons learned and opportunities for improvement. Every individual completes a behavioural profile assessment and personal action plan to evaluate their own strengths, weaknesses and how they perform under pressure.
Typical physical group activities include walking, abseiling, caving and kayaking. We encourage participation in all physical activities, though it is “challenge by choice.” Arrangements can be made to accommodate special needs, such special dietary restrictions and medical conditions. You will be in safe environments and accompanied by experienced staff trained in senior and mental health first aid at all times.
