OB Professional continues to create a point of difference in leadership development
Outward Bound Professional has kicked off the spring season with a suite of successful leadership development and team-building programs in September, including courses with the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation and the Brindabella Speech and Hearing team.
The Australian Rural Leadership Foundation has been coming to Outward Bound since 2009 to engage in leadership development and team-building initiatives for rural leaders. This year, nine participants from every state in Australia representing rural industries such as the Alice Springs Hospital, Oyster Famers Pty Ltd, Australian Cane Farmers, Dept of Primary Industries and Mt Isa Centre for Rural & Remote Health spent four days with Outward Bound. From a high ropes course, to bushwalking, to a self-guided journey in the Orroral Valley, participants encountered challenges that developed their leadership styles and learned new skills to take back to their workplace.
A one-day program run for the entire Brindabella Hearing and Speech team was also a hit, starting at Outward Bound’s National Base and finishing up in the beautiful Orroral Valley. With the day focused on team-building and having a fun, shared experience away from the office, the all-girl team at Brindabella met with our all-girl instructional team at OB Pro for a morning on the team ropes and an afternoon of navigation as they used maps, compasses and teamwork to find their way out of the valley.
Next month will see the OB Pro team head over to the Hawkesbury River where they’ll kick off the season at scenic Fisherman’s Point with a Catalyst Leadership Development program.
