Low Ropes Courses
Using cables, ropes and wooden beams strung among trees or poles, teams explore risk taking, leadership and communication. The low ropes course adventure also highlights problem-solving, coaching and collaboration.
The low ropes elements are close to the ground so the perceived risk is low, but still challenging to complete. Participants walk tightropes, negotiate obstacles, climb walls, and pass teammates through a giant web.
Participants gradually expand their comfort zones (sometimes dramatically) and recognize fears that may block personal and professional achievement. Each challenge draws upon team members to actively support each other.
The discussion following each challenge differs in length and depth depending on the group’s goals for the day. Some find a high-five and a quick acknowledgment of successes sufficient before moving on. Other teams take the time to connect the group process skills and team dynamics back to the work environment relationships.
Our Challenge-by-Choice philosophy enables every participant
to experience their own success in the context of their own aspirations. This adventure provides an excellent foundation for several of our workshop modules like: The Leader's Role in Stages of Team Development and Giving and Receiving Feedback.
