Here’s how Outbound Team Activities Help to Ace Critical Thinking and Leadership

critical thinking

With unprecedented workload and monotonous lifestyle, employees in corporate set-ups often struggle in their lives. They find it challenging to maintain a work-life balance. Outbound training team building programs are impeccable learning processes which greatly enhance the employees’ efficiency.

Why are such programs essential in employees’ life?

Every employee in an organisation needs to have acute critical thinking skills irrespective of his/her designation. However, studies show that 49% of employees have average critical thinking skills at the workplace.

It is believed that people have adequate intelligence to crack even the hard nuts at the workplace. However, most of their grey cells remain unused owing to several factors like:

  • Mundane working ambience
  • Sheer pressure
  • Excessive workload
  • Under-appreciation

On the other hand, detrimental factors like low self-esteem and confidence hugely contribute to disintegrating one’s leadership skills. Then again, to have a highly motivated workforce, leadership is a mandatory component every employee must imbibe in themselves.

Outbound training team building programs are the most dynamic & effective way outs for the workers. These are tailor-made programs where employees undergo a multiple of rigmarole yet fun tasks, enhancing their critical thinking & leadership capabilities.

What are the secret weapons?

Many centres arrange for such training with bespoke activities. Read on to get a glimpse.

I. Rock climbing

Imagine how much effort it takes to shed off those ‘cubicle-closed’ inhibitions, and get into the skin of trekkers. Well, it might take a lot; but in reality, one needs to have the right amalgamation of acute analysing skill and a little physical strength to complete this task.

What’s the takeaway?

While climbing the rock, the workers will surely learn how to climb their career graph without any glitch. Several neurocognitive researchers say that this activity significantly reinforces critical thinking abilities restoring the sense of fun & frolic.

II. DCC-dynamic course

What can be more fun than climbing the wall with a rope and a partner!

These high rope challenges empower core competencies in the workers and infuse impeccable leadership skills. This course entails a series of events which takes leadership capabilities to discern and conduct the task successfully.

III. Raft building

From collecting logs to raw materials, raft building is all about making something out of nothing. And undoubtedly, it requires highly analytical power with headship skill. This extravagant activity aptly links the qualities mentioned above while igniting the employee’s imagination as well as analytical prowess. Over the last few years, raft building is considered to be an ingenious way to tap into the undiscovered potential of seemingly average employees.

IV. The bottom line

Combining deliberate thinking ability along with leadership capabilities is difficult. Employees lacking in these capabilities tend to jump to hasty and inappropriate conclusions instead of evaluating the root cause.

To do away with these grave issues, organisations must come ahead to help their members remain objective to their motives. Nothing but outbound activities can suffice the purpose in the truest sense.
