Organisational Development Programmes for Companies
The New Forest Outdoor Centre offers a range of organisational development services to support growth and change in organisations. We work with teams or companies that are stuck, performing below expectation or just wanting to do things differently. We help to facilitate changes in behaviour and culture, working with organisations to embed new ways of working.
Our working environment
By utilising a combination of theory, facilitated discussions and practical tasks we help people to make sense of what is currently going on, both on and beneath the surface, make plans for the future and facilitate effective and sustainable decisions for change. The outdoor environment and practical tasks help to engage and surface our intuition and provide real and safe experiences to use as ways of exploring what is happening within the team. By its nature our approach is multi sensory which aids the retention of the experiences and the learning that is generated.
We work in partnership with organisations and are happy to co-facilitate with, or support other learning and development professionals in order to provide the right programme.
We run our organisational development courses from our own beautiful site deep in the woods in the New Forest, just outside Lyndhurst. With a diverse range of outdoor activities as well as indoor facilities, our site is an ideal venue for an outdoor-based organisational development course.
We also run programmes from our sister centre Brenscombe Outdoor Centre in Purbeck near Swanage which benefits from a wide range of activities, Poole Harbour, the Purbeck hills and the Dorset sea cliffs. Our hospitality is superb and we serve a range of lunch and supper menus from cold buffets, hot meals, bbqs and hog roasts.
Our courses can range from half a day to five days duration. For longer courses we highly recommend staying on site overnight, either in our Shepherd's huts or camping in tents or shelters. A night on site, spent with fellow delegates away from it all socialising around the campfire, always enhances a course. For a one-day course we can bolt on a overnight stay either before the start or at the end of the course. If you prefer a more luxurious option we can also help you to find local hotel accommodation.
Programmes at your venue
If you would like to have an organisational development programme off site at your chosen location - office, hotel, conference centre or country park - we bring our mobile activities and provide experienced facilitators.
For an informal discussion about how we can able to help your company or organisation with an organisational development course please contact the office on 02380 284 401 or send an email. Our programmes are always unique - designed to meet your specific learning objectives and outcomes so we do not have a published price list - but please do not let this put you off enquiring.
