Leadership Courses

Why is it important to develop good leaders in your organisation?

·         Leaders share in the leadership and free up top executives

·         Leaders can lighten the load of decision makers, enabling effective decision-making at lower levels

·         Leaders can grow in their positions and act as role models for subordinates.

The more an organisation can tap into thoughts and ideas of the combined staff compliment, the stronger and more innovative strategies become. Although most managers are fully conversant with management theories, research reveals that a large percentage do not apply their knowledge of leadership in the work environment.

Custom Leadership Courses

Depending on your required outcomes, Scott’s Teambuilding Adventures can customise a leadership course at a venue of your choosing. Our practical leadership approach will ensure that you obtain maximum benefit from your leadership resources. We aim to give candidates the skills to make a positive difference in the workplace, rather than them simply learning a body of theoretical knowledge. Candidate success is not measured against what is known, but rather against what is done.

Our team building activities are suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels, and participants are guaranteed a fun experience throughout.

Scott’s Approach

Before our Teambuilding Adventure can begin, we assess the need for a team building with you. With insights gained from this first contact, we can proceed to develop our four-pronged team building adventure tailored to your specific requirements. Scott’s approach to teambuilding includes , empowering teams of participants to better themselves both individually and as a group.

1. Planning

The first step in our powerful team building process is to find out what outcomes you’d like to achieve. This planning phase will allow us to decide on specific teambuilding activities that we know will challenge participants to achieve your required outcomes.

2. Theory

Before each team building activity takes place, we speak to participants about the specific task and how they should go about performing it. We take a hands-on approach to our teambuilding activities, and make sure that each participant understands what is required of them.

3. Activity

As our name suggests, our teambuilding activities are an adventure – getting individuals to perform tasks they never thought possible. This conquering of personal limitations empowers the team with a renewed sense of confidence and drive to succeed.

4. Review

At the completion of each teambuilding activity, we conduct the all-important review. Our objective here is to scrutinise each team’s actions, and by doing so gain valuable insights into their ability to work as a team – while giving valuable advice gained from practical experience. During this process, our facilitators draw from conventional thinking as well as from their own unique experiences.
