A perfect setting for inspiring leaders

Leadership Development

Every team needs leadership. Whether it’s on the pitch or in the office, leaders must be able to motivate, engage and develop people for the team to be successful.

If you’re looking to assess or develop people’s leadership skills, the Outdoor Leadership Centre provides a unique and practical setting, away from people’s comfort zones, to put their leadership skills to the test, to learn and apply new leadership models and theories as well as receive personalised feedback on their leadership style; from our vastly experienced training facilitators.


We understand the importance of effective leadership and what it takes to create or enhance those skills in aspiring and existing leaders. We also recognise that there is not just one way in which someone can be a successful leader and that embracing their individualism is essential to successfully leading others.

“It’s only when people start using the word leader about you that you, as it were, actually become a leader” John Adair.

We’ll work with your people to help them understand their own leadership style and the impact it has on other people so they can harness the strengths of their style and build on their weaknesses. Bring your team to the Outdoor Leadership Centre for your next leadership development programme and they can learn:

  • How to develop resilience and overcome adversity
  • Improve decision-making and problem-solving
  • Enhance their coaching techniques
  • Develop their communication skills, both one-to-one and when motivating a team
  • How to take a higher level outlook of the situation and create strategies on the go

Experiential learning, utilising outdoor activities including ropes courses, archery, climbing and problem-solving tasks, offers delegates of all experience levels – from graduates and first-time managers through to senior leaders – the opportunity to enhance their awareness of how their leadership style, communication, decision-making processes and delegation impacts upon team performance and the development of others.
