Laura Erasmus started her interest in human behavior with a High and Low Ropes Course in 1999. A ropes course is a challenging outdoor personal development and team building activity which usually consists of high and/or low elements. Low elements take place on the ground or above the ground. High elements are usually constructed in trees or made of utility poles and require a belay for safety. The High Ropes Course emphasizes risk-taking, trust, and coaching. The challenges enable participants to expand their comfort zones—sometimes dramatically—and recognize fears that may block personal achievement. Each moment is rich with discoveries, whether a person is climbing, encouraging a team mate or “on belay.” Low ropes courses consist of a series of real and imaginary obstacles designed to challenge groups and individuals to work together to accomplish a task.
In May 2001 Laura partnered with a Play Therapist and together they joined Neuro-links Association program under Licence NL12 and became certified Learning Specialists. In the years following Laura expertise ranged from the facilitation of learning empowerment sessions; children and adult brain dominance profile assessments; rope course facilitator for Psychologist, parent group facilitation sessions, human resource empowerment workshops, using brain based principles to foster mental wellness and increase performance. As a member of the Leadership Coaching team, her facilitating and coaching approach is brain-based and results focused. She has 17 years working as facilitator.
