Adventure for ThoughtAbout Aft
We coach, train and consult in the field of human and organizational management. We are focused on people and results, creating and delivering our programs and services with passion, in any language, in any place in the world.
Our philosophy, to a large degree, is based on the philosophy of Outward Bound – the world organization that helps youth, adults and companies develop their personal and team skills, reach high aims, overcome difficulties and learn how to help others.
Kurt Hahn, the man with great authority, is the founder of Outward Bound and World Universities. For him, the aim of education is to help people develop:
- enterprising curiosity,
- undefeatable spirit,
- tenacity in pursuit,
- readiness for sensible self-denial,
- compassion and service to others.
The idea of our company arose while working in Yukon for Canadian Army Cadets. In Whitehorse – the capital of Yukon – we came across a bakery that made the best bread for trappers. The bakery was called “Food for Thought”, which is ‘food’ that induces thoughts. Eureka! That is what Adventure means to us – the way to inspiration, insight and new ideas.
For us, Adventure means all intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual events that give us a chance to grow. We think that whatever happens to us can be Adventure – it only depends on our attitude. We can take advantage of every situation to learn something from it, provided that we keep the ‘adventurous attitude’ – the ability to take on challenges. With such an attitude our outlook on life is transformed from pain and suffering to real pleasure – regardless of problems we may face.
By combining Adventure with reflection we create training sessions that change the participants’ attitude of their work and life. People really inspired by adventure stop complaining, act effectively, and live fully.
