The Borderlands Leadership Centre offers your business or organization an opportunity to focus on goals in a setting that is truly unique. We believe that a quality environment breeds quality thought. In conjunction with our adventure centre, our programs use many activities and initiatives as metaphors to help your organization focus on their goals.
These programs are fun filled and adventurous yet teach the crucial components for the success of an individual as well as an organization namely: increasing loyalty, bonding, trust, communication, retaining employees, planning, coordination, team effort and leadership. The Borderlands runs not only a selection of target specific programs i.e. trust, communications, teamwork, leadership but we also tailor a bespoke course to suit your company’s training needs.
In a modern business world, it is increasingly important to employ staffs who are able to work under pressure, meet deadlines, self-assess and keep up with the changing and challenging business community. Our courses are designed to not only test your staff’s abilities but it also teaches them how to take responsibility for their own learning, progress and development. The courses are practical and theory based and just so we don’t take ourselves too seriously, we also incorporate a sizeable dose of fun! The Borderlands PDP believes that all organizations have a specific history and distinctive culture that has evolved over many years though people may be consciously unaware of restraints that may be inherent in this culture. Exposure to a new learning environment and a fresh approach to facilitation can often highlight any inhibitions and restraints that may be slowing down the progress and the healthy growth of the organization. A quality environment breeds quality thought, and using adventure activities as metaphors, we can help you and your organization to focus on reaching your training goals.

A Borderlands experience, in line with its motto of ‘Inspiring Experience’, is one that provides its participants with an opportunity to identify skills, strengths and solutions for success as an individual, as well as realizing their importance as part of a team. The process consists of interactive challenges and problem solving activities.
The key to opening doors is turning an exciting adventure filled day into a real learning experience. We do this by exploring the norms which are set in place, or which are yet to establish themselves within a group. The Borderlands brings together an outstanding base camp with many challenging activities, using the natural beauty of Nepal as its training ground. Changing the work environment opens the door to changing the way we solve problems and reach our desired goals. Building trust rests on establishing a safe learning environment. True group cohesion and teamwork develops as people work together, thus resulting in the support of one another. Few experiences foster this learning better than the challenges found while paddling whitewater, canyoning, trekking or even in a community living under the stars.
Every Borderlands’ PDP course is different due to the unique nature of the participating groups, the instructors, the weather and the terrain. In fact, an element of the unknown is part of what makes Borderlands a true adventure play ground.
We have one request for our participants- come with an open mind and a willingness to learn. We invite you to share in this mind, body and soul experience!
