Extreme Training
Dolezalek, Holly
Training, v47 n1 p26-28 Jan 2010
Can one learn to lead on the flying trapeze? That's the question prompted by the exotic variations on the theme of experiential learning. By taking employees or executives (or both) out of their work element and putting them through an experience together, training professionals try to create learning that is more meaningful than PowerPoint presentations or Web-based modules--and form tighter bonds between those who participate. Scavenger hunts, rope courses, whitewater rafting, and other kinds of adventures have been the mainstays of "extreme training." This article describes Edy Greenblatt's flying trapeze training sessions and the lessons one can learn from this training.
