Another area that Pragmatix takes pride in itself is the one-of-a-kind outbound training that it provides for schools, colleges and corporates. This customized program varies from summer camps in schools, outdoor training in colleges that extend from 6 to 12 hours, to residential outbound training for corporates and select educational institutions. In the case of corporates, specific requirements and organizational problem areas are identified weeks prior to the training by talking to the HR personnel and/or the employees themselves to truly customize the training program for optimum results. This training involves results-oriented interactive workshops that use the outdoors for experiential learning. This can be done for large teams and focuses on fun based learning.
What It Is
This involves fun-filled games and activities to enhance skills and build attitudes through shared experiences. These workshops are suitable not only for team building training, but also for specific organisation objectives like self and leadership development, communication skills, planning, change management, delegation, teamwork, and motivation.
How It Works
In these training sessions, the trainer divides the participants into teams and assigns tasks or activities to them for completion within a specified time. That is, the team is asked to achieve a goal, but the trainer does not explain how to successfully complete the activity. Participants must work to find a solution individually and together as a team, and must communicate and learn from each other in order to be successful.
The learning begins with the experience, followed by reflection, discussion, analysis and evaluation of the experience. Achievement, performance and behaviours during these activities are reviewed through open discussions, to identify behaviours that enhance performance or lead to failure or decreased performance. Strategies are formulated to deal with factors that hinder, and these strategies are then put to use in the activities that follow, to test their effectiveness and ultimately help the participants learn to change behaviours.
