    LEADERSHIP AND TEAM TRAINING PROGRAM

    Challenge Course

    Participant Information

THE COURSE

    The Challenge Course is designed for groups to come together in a positive environment to encourage personal and group growth.

    Your day may vary depending on length of program and group goals. Most courses consist of three sections. Field games and

    initiatives build the base for the day. This is followed by the more intense low initiatives which use physical elements to pose group

    and individual problems. The last part of the day may include our Fifty Foot Alpine Tower. We ask that you challenge yourself and

    push beyond your perceived limits to feel a sense of adventure and accomplishment. No matter what your day may bring, coming

    with an open mind and setting goals is the key to taking something back to work, home and/or for yourself. We will talk and ask

    each individual to participant in evaluating each element. Remember we are facilitators of the process, you hold the key for making

    the day one to remember.

WHAT DO I WEAR?

    1. Long pants preferred to protect your legs, but shorts are acceptable during hot weather 2. Tennis shoes or hiking boots--NO DRESS SHOES OR SANDALS

    Leadership and Team Training Program

    FULL VALUE CONTRACT

    Effective learning occurs in an environment where what is learned can be put into practice and the learner can receive accurate feedback and reinforcement. An essential component for learning is a person’s conscious

    decision to achieve a particular goal during the group experience. By using a goal setting process and developing individual personal action plans, group members are assisted in defining what they want to achieve, how they are going to accomplish this, and what evidence will serve to demonstrate that they have achieved a specific goal.

The Full Value Contract asks for the following commitments and presumes specific expectations for all group

    members and facilitators.

    1. An agreement among the group members to work together to achieve the individual and group goals that have been developed and share during the group experience.

    2. An agreement to adhere to certain physical and psychological safety guidelines must be discussed and agreed upon by the group.

    3. An agreement to give and receive honest feedback. Each person agrees to listen to and try to integrate feedback when his/her behavior does not support achieving a goal. Similarly, each person agrees to give honest feedback to others when their behaviors do not match identified goals. This involves caring enough about oneself and others to communicate in a fashion that will be productive and facilitate growth.

    Inherent in this process is the belief that every group member has value and by virtue of that value has a right and responsibility to give and receive open and honest feedback. Withholding or refusing to listen to constructive criticism may be viewed as an example of devaluing oneself and others.

    4. An agreement to increase awareness of devaluing or discounting of oneself or others, through words and actions, and to make a conscious effort to confront and work toward changing this behavior. Again, appropriate

    and constructive feedback is an essential ingredient in the Full Value Contract. This may be used to look at one’s

    own behavior, at the possible difference between what one says and what one does, or at the degree to which one is being honest with self and others.
