"I can sincerely say that this initiative has had a huge impact on people's lives..."

In the past three years Outback Initiatives has run 3 programs for the Murrumbidgee CMA. One of these programs has been in conjunction with the Riverina Regional Development Board. These programs have been implemented for a total of 37 Aboriginal people from the Riverina / Murray region. I can sincerely say that this initiative has had a huge impact on people’s lives who have undertaken the program. I have had the pleasure of assisting coordinate the 3 programs, whilst I participated in one of the three. The comments and positive reflections from all participants have truly been amazing. All of the participants have commented that this program has been the most challenging / greatest thing they have ever achieved. Some of the concepts that were taught within the program included but not limited to: Self esteem How to communicate effectively by doing How to be an effective leader Develop individual leadership styles Understand and identify different leadership...

"The course was very valuable in increasing my confidence and motivation to achieve results. I believe to get the most out of the course you need to go with an open mind and be willing to fully participate, as the bottom line is you only get out of it what you are willing to put in. I also think you need to continuously reflect on the course and its learnings and keep practicing them when you return to work, otherwise after the course you can forget all those important learnings and fall back into the same bad habits." Tracey Slade, Regional Operations Manager, Gippsland Region.

"Not being a person to dwell on my own faults..."

%

"I have gained a greater understanding of myself. Not being a person to dwell on my own faults and abilities this course allowed me to reflect on what I want for myself in my family life, work and social aspects. The DISC model of leadership styles was a good way to initiate students into the course and confirm the type of leader you are....The 7 day layout of the course was well managed, with the self reflection allocated for this section of particular significance in our group as we formed a bond that was very absorbing and personal. This was to such an extent it changed the way I viewed myself and the people I was participating in the course with. It also has affected the way I am dealing with my home life and my future leadership roles and aspirations as a volunteer leader. The course reinforced my view that...

I wish I had done this course when I first took on the role of a team leader - this course provided and confirmed learning experiences in a week that could have saved me from some serious issues and setbacks that have cost me years in terms of career satisfaction and enjoyment - this stress also flowed through to family life and that should never have happened. I have also encouraged my wife to source the course through her work as she is now approaching a management phase in her career." Chris Pegg, A S/Sgt, Moe Police.

"We have strengthened relationships across the organisation..."

%

"I attended our most recent 5 day program as a mentor and observed first-hand the transformation achieved with 18 of our valued employees.  Everyone was challenged up to and beyond their comfort zone on many occasions.  Some went beyond their comfort zone emotionally while others went beyond their comfort zone both emotionally and physically.  All have achieved a deeper understanding of themselves and their impact on others.  We have strengthened relationships across the organisation and we have modelled the team membership and team leadership skills we want to embed in our organisation.  The skills learned are directly transferrable to the ‘real world’ but the intangibles achieved in this program are just as important and yet difficult to describe in writing. Many organisations purport to offer similar services but the difference that Outback Initiatives brings is immediately apparent. The OI team not only facilitate the program with professionalism and sensitivity but also role...

"Physically, emotionally, mentally & socially challenging..."

"The learning’s from our trek are so extensive, I feel any words I write will fail to do justice to the programme. It was a true privilege to participate in the programme, from the consummate professionals that were our facilitators to the incredible surroundings, this was an experience of a lifetime (life changing) that unfortunately was over all too soon and I would eagerly do it all again. Approaching the programme with an open mind and commitment to fully participate, I have expanded my knowledge and awareness of myself along with the greater rewards of an improved understanding of the human condition, comradeship and leadership in all its ways, shapes and forms. The bonds formed along the way will be far reaching and long lasting. Physically, emotionally, mentally and socially challenging resulting in such a sense of inspiration, accomplishment and just pure joy." Fred, Brookfield Rail
