Orienteering tour on Mallorca
Our orienteering tour on Mallorca is a great activity for teams who want to test and improve their communicative skills. During the tour the separated teams have to meet up again at a specific spot in the mountains. We provide a challenging setting with several restrictions on communication that make it hard to solve this problem. Coming up with normal ideas and strategies wont help this time.
We will form two smaller groups. These groups start the orienteering tour on Mallorca at different spots and operate independently from each other. Each group has an experienced outdoor guide, that knows the area well. After the initial briefing the guide stays in the background to not influence the group dynamics.
The aim for all groups is to meet again at a certain point in the mountains. Therefore they have maps of the area and a professional radio with a small contingent of minutes to talk to the other group. The usage of private mobile phones is not permitted. After a short amount of time the participants will notice, that they have the maps of the other group and this was no mistake. So the map wont help for the orienteering of their own group.
This confusion during the orienteering tour on Mallorca will foster group dynamic and reflect quite well the classical way of thinking and acting inside a company. The tendency not to share information with other departments is very typical. But after a while new strategies can emerge and they might be communicated to the other group. Quickly it shows that the groups need a high level of cooperation and precise communication to meet the given goal.
Our experienced outdoor guides prevent group pressure, so nobody is made to fell uncomfortable. We always work with the principle of challenge by choice during our orienteering tour on Mallorca, so everybody can decide how far he or she wants to go.
The duration of the orienteering tour on Mallorca is 5,5 hours.
