At School of the Wild, we run offsite team building and leadership development programmes outside, on purpose. Here's why nature brings out the best in your team.
At School of the Wild, we’re driven by one idea: nature brings out the best in people.
We believe that reconnecting with the natural world is the one of the best ways to reconnect with each other, freeing your collective potential and growing together. It’s where many voices become one mind.
The latest research backs this up, showing that spending time in nature:
Time in nature boosts your team performance by helping individuals grow and develop, and build meaningful bonds with each other. We know this works.
So we run offsites and team building programmes with a difference: we support you to solve concrete problems and realise your team’s potential in these challenging times, through:
How nature brings out the best in your team
Around the fire, the mix of nature, activities and facilitated conversations creates a safe space that allows your team to be more present with each other, and to transcend the usual barriers that come up in the workplace.
Spending time in nature helps team conversations go from boring meetings to dynamic discussions:
How your organisation can benefit
In a fast changing world, and with remote working on the rise, it’s becoming harder for business owners and managers to lead teams in the same direction while keeping their company culture strong and intact.
A positive and healthy work culture requires meaningful employee interaction and connection, for without it, trust is unlikely to develop. And when your team lacks trust, communication, engagement, and productivity are the next to suffer.
Establishing the connection needed to build trust is key to ensuring everyone is headed in the same direction with a shared set of values.
This is why taking a break away from screens and the routine of work, without distractions and the pressure of deadlines, to invest in your team’s success is one of the smartest business decisions you can make.
At School of the Wild, our mission is to help organisations work with nature to transform their teams and inspire a regenerative relationship with the world and each other. We bring leaders and teams outside to help you reconnect and think differently, so that you’re inspired to change the way you work.
We incorporate activities designed to help you see things differently, like making fire, working with symbols and connecting with nature as part of creating space for meaningful conversations that build belonging and align your workforce with your values.
