Lets keep things simple (for that is all it needs to be initially) and use Kipling’s ‘six honest serving-men’ to take things forward.
What does Earthly Edge do?
We specialise in providing outdoor tasks and activities to help facilitate learning outcomes that you require for your company. In particular:
Transferable learning that can be more powerful than classroom simulations as real consequences are produced by the actions (or in-actions) of those involved.
Experienced, technical and imaginative support for your own in-house training sessions, therefore making them memorable and unique.
Developing and delivering bespoke, and fully facilitated team and individual development courses throughout the country. Often at a venue of your choice.
Engaging and entertaining teams with shared experiences that can help say a big thank you during these testing economic times.
Why use the outdoors?
Because the outdoors can provide a powerful and flexible vehicle for experiential learning. It can help to address outcomes as diverse as allowing individuals to experience greater awareness of themselves and others, through to broad skills such as improved leadership, team building and communication skills.
