What is the 'Off-Road Immersion Retreat?
A complete off-road immersion experience that will take participants on a journey of personal and group development and exploration over three days.
An off-road format is one of the very best executive team building opportunities. Here are some of the key aspects of what makes this special:
This not a trip with a tour guide. You drive!
That is correct, the participants will drive the vehicles through all kinds of terrain. The benefit is experiencing authentic behavior, both in yourself and in others. When the Land Rover feels like it is out of control, the fear is real while the safety is high.
Among other benefits, helping execuctives 'crack their protective corporate shell' and interact authentically is difficult to do and this program accomplishes that quickly.
What is the Goal of the Off-road Immersion Retreat?
To use unique personal and group challenges to help participants understand and achieve excellence in leadership, which can mean following at times, living outside your comfort zone and putting others in the 'driver's seat'.
The actual aspect of driving off-road is designed to appeal to each person's spirit of adventure. In addition, there is something basic about spending time in nature and seeing unique aspects of our world such as wild horses up close and 10,000 year old petroglyphs.
Additionally, providing an off-road event gets people excited about learning something again.
How does it work exactly?
The adventure begins, not when your group arrives in Reno, NV, but when they attend a meeting on the day of departure.
Sitting in a conference room where your company is located, the group will be given instructions. Breaking them into teams, each team will open up an envelope and the race begins!
Each team will have no idea what their end destination is that day and clues will eventually lead them to the airport where they will pick up their tickets.
The race and adventure will continue from the moment they leave the conference room until they return home days later.
We customize each aspect of the program. For example, if your group has a layover in Denver, CO, one of our facilitators will interact with them at the airport and give them additional clues to solve and materials to absorb before they arrive.
Solving clues and filling out information, they will learn about various aspects of off-roading - navigation, map-reading, etc -- which will speed up the learning process when they begin.
Finally, they arrive in Reno, NV and walk outside to see their Land Rover Discovery vehicles waiting for them outside baggage.
Solving the clues and filling out information will earn them points and give the teams advantages the next day when the Off Road Expedition begins.
How will your group benefit?
Individuals will be placed in an environment that is both familiar and foreign. The off-road immersion process positions individuals where many of the tools available are part of their everyday world, but the environment is both challenging and unfamiliar.
The process forces participants to utilize and augment existing leadership skills and personal strengths while exposing them to mental, physical and environmental challenges that will provide the opportunity to build a foundation for developing and/or reinforcing professional and life skills.
Additional benefits may tnclude:
Groups will spend time in their vehicles, but also interacting as a larger group and debriefing as a larger group. The effect is a greater sense of unity amongst each other. Additionally, this is a better reflection and recreation of most work settings.
Who should attend?
The ideal candidate is any group looking to improve both personally and professionally. Although not a prerequisite, a sense of adventure and an open mind are traits that will allow the learning process to begin at a deeper level.
What size groups can run Off Road Immersion?
Groups from 3 to 20 will benefit from this program. More than that and there is more of a 'tour' environment and learning becomes challenging.
What is the duration of Off Road Immersion?
8 Hours to 4 days - Obviously, the more time we have the more opportunities we have for self and group exploration as well as creating more intricate physical obstacles for the group to overcome.
What is the Off Road Immersion 'post event facilitation'?
Be Legendary's professional facilitators debrief the entire event throughout the event.
However, the Post Event Facilitation is the most critical. This is where learning that has occurred is put into actionable steps.
Very few executive teams have every step and plan in place for FE 2 . The Post Event Facilitation is designed to identify those areas and actionable steps to achieve FE 2 . This is the groups new 'Roadmap for Excellence'.
