Problem Solving

We can deliver problem solving sessions at our centre, at your venue and even supply resources for you to run in-house problem solving tasks with your own staff.

Solving problems is a necessary part of life

Excellent for developing team work, initiative, planning, leadership, decision making, listening and communication skills. Plus mutual respect and awareness and consideration of others.

The tasks require the group to work effectively as a team.  It is important to encourage participation by all, perhaps by allowing different people to lead a task.  Reviewing is a critical process too in order to ensure success.  Complete tasks in-line with the problem solving model: Plan – Do – Review

Problem Solving at Outdoor Elements

Set throughout our beautiful 7-acre woodland, we have a range of problem solving tasks.  Typically problem solving is one session delivered alongside a range of other activities available at our activity centre.  Click here to read more.

Problem Solving At Your Venue – Delivered By Outdoor Elements

We have problem solving resources that can be used indoors and outdoors.  Working in small teams (up to 10) there are a range of physical and cognitive tasks to explore team dynamics and the process of plan-do-review.  This session can also be presented as a fun competition between teams.
