Many say the most daunting part of a journey is taking the first step.
We’re so proud of our attendees who have shown nothing but persistence, courage and determination on their residential this year, at a time when they could have easily backed down, they stood up to explore and develop the behaviours of flexibility and resilience through experiential learning with a sense of adventure!
So, what activities did they get up to?
We ask our students to embrace the adventure and overcome any self-limiting beliefs, try something new and push personal boundaries.
Across the days, many personal boundaries were pushed, energy was radiated, fears were overcome, new experiences were embraced and self-awareness was raised through opportunities to reflect and ask “I feel like this, why is that, what can I do about it?”
We received some lovely feedback from HR apprentice Nikki Gilks:
“I would really like to thank you both for last week, I found the residential a true eye-opener and feel I went through a massive transformation. I was very apprehensive prior to the trip as I am a very cautious person around new people, the unknown and also suffer from anxiety and lack self-belief. I am so glad I went as it made me change my perception of people in general as well as finding myself. My view of most adults was everyone is out for themselves and due to this, I am a very closed book.
This trip was far from that view, due to the physical and mental difficulties I received a lot of help and encouragement from the team which I have never experienced before and due to this I managed to achieve everything which was thrown in front of me where be it walking up to the summit viewpoint or jumping of cliff rocks. Considering I was with this team for 3 days I felt everyone worked well together to get everyone through each task and due to the difficulty and challenging aspects of the tasks it brought everyone closer and will definitely be keeping in contact with everyone.
I feel like a completely different person and would like to take the time to thank you both.( I don’t think I can thank you guys and Kayley enough 😊)”
