COMBAT READY HIKE
“The principles of paradigms and taking responsibility really spoke to me. The materials and the exercises really helped me take everything in.”
“A great course which gets people in the civil sector approaching situations from a different angle and makes how they handle it more flexible and easier to understand.”
Combat Ready Hike is a hiking version of the “Leadership Principles from War” training. We combine moderate activity in nature with acquiring new knowledge, also building team unity. The hike does not require any physical preparedness. Rather, the focus will be on being in nature, engaging in stimulating discussions, acquiring new knowledge and developing relationships.
This is a training day where theory is closely linked to immediate practice. New knowledge will be reinforced through discussions, role-plays and exercises. Debrief and detailed feedback after every exercise help participants connect these freshly learned principles to challenges they face daily at work and personal life. On the Combat Ready Hike you will have a unique opportunity to see the problems through the lens of a leader, subordinate and colleague. This setup contributes to better understanding of each other, the problems and possible solutions.
The training takes place in the wild with the aim of stepping out of your usual environment. Nature, fresh air and movement are the perfect combination for acquiring new knowledge, thinking creatively and making memories together as a team.
Combat Ready Hike will happen whatever the season or the weather. There is no bad weather, only bad gear. Hikes take place all over Estonia, we choose the location according to the participants’ wishes.
We start the day at the agreed location early in the morning.
We’ll get acquainted, review the essential equipment, make the necessary arrangements for a successful day and introduce the upcoming Combat Ready Hike.
A hike in a scenic location, suitable for all participants, awaits. Combat Ready Hike is designed to build team unity and develop leadership skills. There are a number of exercises to be done as a team and the ‘Leadership Principles from War’ learned during the day need to be applied.
The mission will be tailored to the needs and wishes of the team/group. The longer the hike, the more insights and discussions.
The maximum duration is 6-8 hours.
