Orienteering

 

Orienteering is a group of sports that requires participants to complete a route as quickly as possible. However, the fastest is not always the shortest route. Therefore, participants should accurately examine and select the less fatiguing and fastest one.

What participants can expect from Orienteering Team Buildings:

  • Unify athletic and cognitive skills;
  • Basic tools: map and compass;
  • Complete the route following the precise sequence of control points;
  • Verify the correct path with a system of stamping at each control point;
  • Control points are marked by lanterns, usually situated on top of rocks, into small pits or next to intersections of trails.
  • Lanterns are objects shaped as prisms and made of cloth, half white half orange.

Orienteering and the corporate world

The outdoor Orienteering is an activity that shares many analogies with the corporate world:

Decision making: Evaluating and selecting the best solution creatively and dynamically and making decisions with confidence.

Problem setting: Cooperating with team spirit, trying to learn and employ new approaches to plan a winning strategy.

Problem solving: Operating in unexpected environments, overcoming difficulties, making the most of the available resources and achieving goals in the shortest time as possible.

Formative goals

  • Facilitate the creation of a creative, highly engaging and yet atypical environment where participants can get to know each other better;
  • Develop a sense of belonging to a group;
  • Reduce the psychological distance between individuals;
  • Promote the "creative thinking" culture among the group;
  • Facilitate and enhance the communication and relational dynamics between individuals;
  • Work on performances of each individual and of the entire team.
