Leadership and Team Building

 

 


What’s stopping YOUR TEAM from being High Performance?

 

We promise no boring lectures. By focusing on a specific topic determined by the client and with no set agenda, participants learn by taking part in activities that allow each person to identify the triggers that most effect them. Then as each person participates and interacts with the horses, he or she learns new strategies to cope with and overcome those everyday problems and situations that occur in work and life. As a group, each participant learns how to better communicate their needs to each other in order to achieve success as a team. It is a powerful training technique because horses respond to the energy that is being projected and ‘mirror’ it back to the participant which provides immediate feedback creating invaluable opportunities for learning experiences. A team that works together with positive energy in all their relationships has unlimited potential for growth and creativity within their organization. The agenda is intentionally left vague in order to allow the horses and the experience to dictate the outcome and identify the tools most helpful to each participant.

 

 

This workshop will help you and your team:

  • Increase personal awareness

This custom program in leadership and team building development is a positive approach to the enhancement of individual leadership, teamwork or group interaction. Through kinesthetic learning, it promotes leadership skills, confidence, trust, communication, creativity and problem solving skills. To effectively lead others, you must first understand and lead yourself. Horses are both leaders and followers depending on their herd hierarchy. In order to survive, their natural instincts allow them to determine almost instantly who is worthy of being called a leader. Learning what horses can teach us about basic life skills is an interesting and often fun approach to awaken our capacity for authentic empowerment. Self empowered individuals make healthy behavior choices and practice mindful awareness of thoughts, feelings and emotions which in turn allows them to be powerful people within any organization. They become people that others want to follow! Click here for testimonials.

The Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Assessment can be taken by individuals or leaders as a proven way to measure how an individual perceives and approaches work and life and reacts to different circumstances and experiences. As individuals, we view the world through filters (based on our experiences, values, assumptions, etc.). Those filters will either limit what we see (like tunnel vision) or expand what we see (like a prism) and, thus, impact how we perceive and what we think about our circumstances. This, in turn, impacts how we show up in different situations. The Energy Leadership Index assessment reveals what specific filters you’ve developed and how those filters are influencing the results you’re achieving. Click here to take the assessment.

 

(Studies suggest employee engagement has reached a crisis low. Surveys performed last year have found that 84% of employees polled say they plan to look for new jobs in the coming year. Among these dissatisfied and disengaged employees, there is a great deal of stress and limited productivity. Lack of employee engagement continues to be a central factor in the performance and the success of organizations. Current methods of increasing engagement have either not been effective or have only been marginally so.)

 

The Energy Leadership assessment shows leaders and their teams how shifting their energy to higher levels by raising their level of awareness can, in turn, raise their level of success in all areas of life. Learning the principles of Energy Leadership is taught during the full day training sessions and will become an invaluable tool in your organization’s level of success! The assessments and debriefing by our Master Practitioner can be taken either before or after the training.

Team Building at Story Book Meadows

 

 

Demonstration of Team Building using horses to improve communication and build stronger teams. This group learned that their positive energy in the beginning was encouraging for the horse to co-operate but once they ‘broke the rules’ the team became less functional and the horse no longer trusted their motives and decided he wasn’t going to co-operate any longer. What could the team have done to keep this as a positive experience for the horse and empower them as a group to succeed?
