Learning by doing – it is at the heart and foundation of Team Development training or Corporate Adventure Training. Experiential Learning is powerful for a number of reasons.
- Creates meaning from experience… it’s about creating that ‘a-ha’ moment.
- Is fostered in a risk free environment that allows people to be creative, innovative and explore.
- Breaks down barriers and allow people to experience the value communicating cross function.
- Makes learning memorable!
