Working alongside Victrex plc we help to deliver their in-house leadership training programme. The day at Outdoor Elements is facilitated by two trainers who guide the participants to explore how they manage people. Working in small groups the delegates are presented with team problem solving tasks and take turns to assume the role of leader.
