Outdoor Training is one of the off the job training methods. It is an educational method using physical activities in the nature, based on sensory experience, knowledge and experience of the situation, i.e. it is based on the experiential pedagogy. Outdoor training’s aim is to raise the physical, emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual level of all participants.

Often the outdoor training is focused on the creation of the team and increase employee motivation, and therefore it can be confused with the concept of the teambuilding, which has a narrower meaning.

Outdoor training is now often used for the development of enterprise management, for the development of key competencies. These competencies include the ability to communicate, cooperate, finding solutions to problems. A very important factor in this form of learning is feedback between client and outdoor training lecturer. The experience of the lecturer is very important for proper utilization of the acquired experience during the training.

The most commonly used activities in outdoor training are biking, abseiling, archery, crossbow shooting, water sports, ropes course and many other activities that are based on physical activities of participants connected into one comprehensive form.

Outdoor training can be targeted in different ways according to the needs of the organization - relaxation, improving teamwork, meditation, and solving various crisis situations, selection of suitable employees into different teams, talent identification, self-knowledge and other.

  • Team spirit - so called value added experience. The aim is to motivate and unite the work team and strengthen informal business relationships. Team spirit is usually conceived dynamically, with an emphasis on experience. For example, adrenaline activities such as ropes course or rappelling
  • Teambuilding - the most complex type, in this case the team building goes to the depth of the building the team.

The team development is based on a specific program in which the teams are exposed to new situations, which they must solve as a team. Next, all experiences and solutions are discussed in a joint discussion with the teambuilding instructors and solutions are evaluated by both teams and the instructors. This type of teambuilding provides the greatest feedback about the ability of team cooperation and communication
  • Individual development - or training, coaching. All the principles of experiential learning can be used equally well for teams as for individuals. It can improve the ability to communicate, work efficiency and cooperation on the basis of training and observations of individual behavior within a given team.

saya agak kecewa ama statement Mou yg ini “I’m not worried about playing against Liverpool or Real or AC Milan, but I am worried because I am not training with all my players. It is what it is and we have to make the best of it. It’s maybe good for Shaw, Bailly and Andreas Pereira.,,,,,,,, ,

Bailly berarti lebih buruk daripada Smalling Jones gitu? apa ga bisa nilai dia kalau Bailly the best cb yg kita punya, Smalling Jones Rojo itu levelnya sama cocoknya buat cadangan doang mereka sama2 reckless banyak bikin kesalahan tapi Mou emang tutup mata kalau yg bikin blunder pemain kesayangannya tapi buat pemain yg ga suka sekali blunder abis karirnya
