empowercamp Outdoor Training

Dear friends,

I am writing to you to share an initiative we have taken. I was finding that in India we are not as deeply involved in Outbound training as they are in the Western world. To get a better exposure for trainers who wish to enhance their awareness in the field of Outdoor training, and for senior executives to have a unique Leadership experience, we are organising two UNIQUE training events:



A. 'Faciltator Skills in Outdoor Training.'

B. 'Leadership in Action.'



The programmes will be conducted by Master Trainer, Dr. ROGER GREENAWAY, (http://reviewing.co.uk) a specialised training consultant from UK . It will probably be the first time an Outbound Training programme will be conducted in India at that level.



The details of the programmes are given below in two separate mailers below.


You may like to nominate some members of your team for any or both of these programmes.


I also wish to reach out to more people with your help. May I request you to for your help by asking you to please forward this mailer to all those on your mailing list you think can benefit from such programmes.

Thanks



Best wishes
Sushil

Add value to your outdoor programmes with the skills and tools for facilitating active learning.



Empower Activity Camps and Wide-Aware invite you to participate in a three day trainer-training programme designed especially for providers of outdoor training.



Facilitation Skills for Outdoor Trainers

presented by Dr. Roger Greenaway



This three day residential programme will enable you to:

* Refresh and sharpen your facilitation skills
* Revisit the fundamentals of facilitating learning and development
* Develop your skills in facilitating discussions arising from experiential activities.
* Extend your training tool kit with reviewing methods that motivate participants
* Learn to match reviewing methods to activities and to stages in a programme

The skills and methods you will explore in this programme are suitable for:

* Facilitating a range of programmes: personal development, team building, leadership training, management development.
* Working with a wide age range: youth and adult
* Learning from any activities: outdoor, challenge, group, problem-solving, creative, simulation and work activities



About the presenter: Roger began working in Outdoor Management Development in 1981. He received a doctorate in 1995 for a study of the experiences of managers during such programmes. Roger also has an extensive background in working with disadvantaged youth and in training others to do so in his 4 years with Save the Children. Roger now provides reviewing skills training to a wide range of clients in the UK and around the world. Their testimonials are published on Roger's website - providing evidence of transfer at many levels. You will discover that Roger practices what he preaches - using experience-based training methods to learn about experience-based training.



Resources: The programme will be supported by a course manual and by relevant extracts from Roger's books and articles. Both as preparation and follow-up you are recommended to browse Roger's highly acclaimed ‘Guide to Active Reviewing' at: http://reviewing.co.uk

Empower presents a unique management development opportunity

LEADERSHIP IN ACTION

A Powerful Learning Experience for Senior Executives

EMPOWER is proud to offer you a three day residential programme presented by Dr. Roger Greenaway – a widely experienced training consultant from the UK who specialises in experience-based learning. Roger's doctorate was a study of 'Powerful Learning Experiences in Management Learning and Development' but this is no academic programme that we are offering to you. This is an experience-based programme that recognises that managers are already talented at learning from experience and it builds on those talents.

The programme works at 3 levels:

* Enabling you to learn from team and leadership experiences during the programme.
* Providing opportunities for peer learning through sharing workplace experiences in novel ways.
* Developing insights, skills and techniques that you can take back to the workplace for further learning about leadership and teamwork – for yourself and your colleagues

Powerful learning experiences will include:

* Experiencing a variety of team activities and team roles including team leadership.
* Experiencing simple yet empowering ways of giving and receiving feedback.
* Experiencing learning with and from your peers using a range of versatile reviewing techniques.

As a result of participating in this programme you will be better able to:

* Play an influential role as a team leader or manager – in your own style.
* Bring innovative learning processes into team meetings - to make them more effective.
* Create useful learning from experiences in the workplace – for yourself and others

On this programme you will not be presented with theories of leadership or models of teamwork: you will be experiencing teamwork and you will be experiencing leadership. And through the guidance and facilitation of Roger Greenaway, you will be able to maximise your learning from these experiences and return to the workplace with the tools and the understanding that will make you a better team player, a better leader, a better learner and a better facilitator of learning.
