Bridgeworks commitment to building courageous compassionate inspiring leaders is strongly influenced by one educator’s philosophy.
An Inspired Purpose And A Powerful Process
Kurt Hahn was a German educator and a key figure in the development of experiential education.
In 1934 he founded the famous Gordonstoun school in Scotland. Additionally, he founded the Outward Bound movement and Duke of Edinburgh Award. To this day his philosophies have a far-reaching international influence that has stood the test of time.
Hahn believed that students could only really understand life by experiencing it in many exciting and challenging ways. By testing themselves, students would develop their courage, generosity, imagination, principles and resolution. Ultimately they would develop the skills and abilities to become the guardians and leaders of the future.
Outdoors Experiential Learning Boosts Effectiveness
Bridgeworks delivers 50% of the content of its programs in the outdoors. The resulting group experiences bring to life the theory; and they turbo-charge the learnings from the more traditional indoors group and individual activities.
We design stretching scenarios to challenge mindsets, encourage courageous conversations and build effective leaders and teams.
When did you or your team last do that?
Because Wayne Dyson’s experience combines Outward Bound, education and business, he designs highly supportive and effective programs:
- Workshops supporting participants from all kinds of organisations in discovering their impact on others and opening their hearts and minds to alternative behaviours.
- Coaching and mentoring that help them build momentum and implement change. So participants can reap all the benefits of an engaged culture.
