The Challenge Event
Our Challenge Event was initially developed for the front-end of an eight-day technical training course for people in their first three years of experience in the oil industry. The learning design for the technical training is in syndicate groups with a daily deliverable and a final presentation to a subject matter expert. The purpose of the Challenge Event is to prepare the teams to be able to work efficiently and together on the technical projects.
The themes of the training
As part of the two-and-a-half days’ training we look at:
- Leadership in project groups
- Competition versus collaboration
- In-house leadership competency framework to give and receive feedback
- The skills of a high performing team
The style of the programme is highly interactive, we work through the learning cycle five times. Each interactive exercise lasts 2-3 hours, followed by a group review and feedback from the trainers who have observed the groups working. We then explore a theory using 3 of our f@sterclasses which provide new ideas or models for the groups to experiment with in the next exercise.
Make it yours
The Challenge Event is now run worldwide with groups of up to 30 people (5 Teams). It is an intense and fun experience. ClearWorth has adapted this programme for other clients groups and worked with their leadership frameworks and/or their preferred models.
Making a contribution
One of the things that is important to us at ClearWorth is making a contribution to communities beyond the clients we are working with. The Challenge Event prize has enabled us to do this. Over the 5 year history of this programme we have donated £1000’s to charity. The winning group choose where the prize should be spent. We provide brochures for a couple of charities but the groups are free to donate to any international charity
