A range of on and off-site programmes for personal development, leadership, communication skills and team working.
If there are certain things that leaders and teams must do, more fundamentally, there are certain things that leaders and teams must be. At Backwater Adventures, we passionately believe in the power of people and not process. We look to support the development of effective leadership and followership through experiential learning, using the outdoors as a backdrop for personal and group journeys.
Our programs are created for you, not just a set package. This allows us to create a program that will suit your needs. We are flexible and can arrange any type of program from on-site days based in school to residential weeks, staying in local Devon accommodation. Various aspects of the national curriculum can also be integrated in to the program to reinforce the learning outcomes.
Our approach to leadership, followership and personal development is complementary to the Citizenship curriculum and related areas such as Social Responsibility in the National Curriculum. We believe that high performance is only sustainable in organisations that foster a positive ethos and a values-based culture and concentrate on role-modeling and inspiring others. We therefore focus values-based leadership, effective communication, emotional intelligence, self-awareness and a coaching culture. We believe that development must be fun and our innovative journeys and programmes are built around this concept. Alongside this is the recognition that development requires supported reflection and we believe that the outdoors and our approach to working with it, is the best possible environment for this.
We consider all of our clients as partners in the development process and pride ourselves in creating bespoke solutions that meet the differing challenges for the various organisations and schools that we have worked with; why not get in contact (link) and discuss your aspirations and needs?
