There is no better way to improve our well-being than to get outside and enjoy the beautiful natural environment while learning some new strategies and skills.
The Learn Leadership Active Learning Sessions are all about using our outdoor spaces as learning environments, combining physical activity with professional/personal development. There will be a mix of light exercise to more adventurous activities to suit individual levels of fitness and sense of adventure, including walking, hiking, kayaking, yoga, meditation, swimming, bike riding and other activities as suggested, requested or offered by our wonderful outdoor community. Sessions will be kept to small groups, with personalised and/or individual sessions on request, and will range from short sessions to full day activities.
These active learning sessions are great opportunities to take the time to learn some new skills, get outside for some exercise, share experiences, meet new people and with the extra bonus of a professional/personal development session well and truely outside the classroom!
New Active Learning Sessions are currently being planned for the coming weeks to incorporate visiting a sacred Indigenous gathering place, abseiling, mountain biking, kayaking, yoga and more hikes, walks and climbs. The learning topics will be designed to suit the activities and will include topics such as ‘Understanding & Creating Momentum’, ‘Letting Go to Build Confidence’, ‘Inspiring Creativity & Innovation’, ‘Managing the Ups & Downs of Motivation’, ‘Resilience: Learning through experience’, and ‘Balance & Focus: Making space to be effective’.
Managing the Ups & Downs of Motivation
Motivation naturally comes and goes for most of us. These Active Learning Sessions gave participants some strategies for maintaining and balancing motivation through these ups and downs whether in their professional or personal lives.

Setting and Achieving Goals
These sessions focused on strategies for not only setting goals (that’s the easy part) but actually enjoying the learning process along the way to achieving those goals. Participants learned about care of self and of others, better awareness of our own behaviours and acceptance of what we can control while working toward our goals.

Dealing with Challenges
In this session, participants learned about how we can better deal with challenging situations, whether at work or in our personal lives, by changing our perspective, taking an active attitude to self-care and regulating our responses.
