The Discovery Course at the ISL is the first and only one of its kind in India.
Georges Hebert, a French naval officer in the early 1900s, was the originator of the Discovery Course. The fundamental values of the Natural Method (the three forces of Physical, Virile and Moral) define the principles that guide the Discovery Course.
The Discovery Course is not an obstacle course. It is designed with over 25 separate elements ranging from traditional high challenge course traverses, to unique team challenges that create true high team-building opportunities. It features universal accessibility options even for participants with disabilities, and allows this to be programmable for most ages as well.
The uniqueness of the Discovery Course is that it simulates for the student, an environment of perceived risk, and enables the trainer to design elements specific to the needs and abilities of the trainees. Therefore, even middle aged individuals and physically handicapped can benefit from the Discovery Course.
As the name purports, the Discovery Course helps the individual to discover oneself, and enables individuals and teams to become proficient in the following leadership competencies:
- Team-building through trust
- Problem-solving and decision-making
- Risk-taking and creativity
