Success takes more than educational qualifications. Increasingly, organisations need people who know their own strengths and weaknesses, can perform well in teams, work cooperatively and inspire others. If you want to develop these skills to boost your career potential, or you have been challenged with a new leadership role at work, Catalyst is for you!

Trust, respect, effective communication and generating understanding among people are all key aspects to becoming an effective and valued leader.

Catalyst builds confidence and self-awareness and encourages acceptance of new levels of responsibility, providing a powerful foundation for any leadership role.

I must start by saying that the Outward Bound Catalyst program is one of the best courses that I have undertaken. I would certainly recommend the course to others and feel that it is one of the best courses around for professional development.

Desmond Woolfield, Stramit Building Products

I firmly believe that this course is one of the most valuable leadership learning experiences I have undertaken. In summary, I believe my participation in the OBA Catalyst Inspiring Leaders Course has given me benefits and new skills which would not be possible though any other type of training. This course is unique in the way it is delivered and I personally found it a great learning experience.

Josh Smolenears, The Laminex Group

Upon completion I can say it is the best course I have attended and would recommend it to anyone. It is the only course I have attended which allows time for self-reflection and to reconnect with your values both at work and at home. In a busy world, you can forget these.... the things, which define you. It has given me greater confidence and inspired me to be a better leader and highlighted that the impossible is possible when a team pulls together.

Cameron Corcoran, Fletcher Insulation

Outward Bound’s Catalyst Program is a life-changing experience to say the least. Every member of my group was privileged to have been able to take away so many learnings and apply them in our daily lives from just one short week. I believe the unique blend of theoretical, experiential and real-life scenario teachings, together with a balance between team-oriented and self-guided activities have greatly increased our awareness towards our personal behaviours and how we interact with other people in our worlds.

Victor Lee, Project Logistics Manager, Mettle Group

Outward Bound helped us all learn, laugh and look at ourselves with honesty and enthusiasm, and with encouragement that helped us all to exceed even our wildest expectations.....It was a magnificent week!
