how we do it

Using the La Granja Method, based on the experience and experimentation of participants, with challenges that are both motivating and fun. Surprises will be a part of the exercise, as well as joy and courage and the use of metaphores, surrounded by forest in the midst of nature.Using observation, the art of asking questions and feedback, the emotional educator will help the unconscious become conscious. Each activity will have a specific intent and will train several skills or competences simultaneously.

Example of activities during one day of Outdoor Training from 9am to 4pm.

During this time we will do three activities and have a VIP meal in the forest. Each activity will last one and a half hours aprox, divided into three parts: Setting the challenge, Activity itself and Reflection. Activities are always designed according to the needs of every company or organization:

  • LEADERSHIP AND CO-LEADERSHIP WITH A HORSE: to help understand self and co-leadership and the skills it takes, especially when your professional work companions are distant. Certainty and trust in oneself and others are key when being followed by a 500kg horse. Also important are empathy, how you communicate and strategy. We train: emotional awareness, leadership, co-leadership, team work, courage, trust and empathy.
  • THE CIRCUIT OF ANXIETY: a wooden maze which graphically and metaphorically helps understand and establish the difference between stress and anxiety, as well as become aware of the meaning of pressure, giving the participants practical tools to manage and regulate anxiety, stress and pressure in a positive way. We train: self-awareness,  management of anxiety, stress and pressure, emotional awareness, emotional self-regulation, creativity.
  • THE MISSION: this intense activity is made up of different challenges to train working as a team: the wheel, the path of success, the platforms and the skiis of solidarity. Talents may show up that were perhaps hidden within the group, leading to the perception that no one alone knows as much as the sum of the group as a whole. We train: work as a team, emotional awareness, discovering hidden talents, communication, strategy, organization, leadership.
  • SAILING AS A TEAM: powerful and risky activity where participants must overcome different challenges aboard some unstable boats in the pool. Metaphorically and graphically, this activity is a challenge to any team, and allows to observe individual and group reaction in the face of dificulties. We train: team work, emotional awareness and self-regulation, leadership, strategy, synchronization, tolerating frustration, creativity, proactivity, communication and error management.
  • CLOSURE: final activity where reflections will be aimed at designing an individual and/or group plan of action.
