Obstacle Course

•   This activity is a fun way of developing agility and helps people get over fears of physical and mental hurdles.

    A participant learns, that a few stumbling blocks need not mean that you give up

   The course comprises a set of about ten obstacles, which include a Burma bridge, Monkey rope, Croc Walk, Spider's web, Leopard's cave and Robber's climb among others

   After an initial demonstration, the groups are led into a practice session, followed by the real thing

 A session costs Rs 600/- per head, plus taxes.  This covers equipment, crew and instructions

   The Obstacle course is a great activity to use in our OBTs as it can be used to high-light a number of KRAs

   When used in an OBT we structure the activity using a number of novel methods like configuring the scoring system, constraints on the resources/equipment/time, putting in a whole lot of terms of references which permit you or forbid you to behave in a certain way, or you may have to carry a cumbersome load, or do some other task along the way 

   In an OBT it’s not the individual skill or effort in the activity that is important. What is of essence is the way in which the team deals with certain situations and issues

   These reactions of the team are observed by the facilitator and are used to highlight the KRAs and bring out the lessons
