There are three main attributes to a successful employee; Knowledge, Skills and Experience. Knowledge can be memorized, experience is gained overtime ‐ but SKILLS are critical to utilize the and knowledge experience an employee has gained. At the most basic level of all skills are interpersonal communication skills, which also tend to be the one most lacking in today’s corporate environment.
If you are thinking, “We cannot put the money into our employees now as we are restructuring/merging.” We understand. This can be the scariest time for your business but even scarier for those working for you. Develop your people during these times of enormous change and it will come back to you ten fold in employee trust and loyalty.
What you learn is important, however what your remember is priceless. Sort out the qualities of your employees by putting the horse in the middle of your team. Horses reveal the hidden dynamics of teams so that they can be effectively managed. It’s the truest of honesty as to identify individual and team’s qualities and what they may or may not be showing you. The horse can discern and give honest feedback as they know no other way.
Much like horses, we look for strong leadership and mutual trust and respect is only given and reciprocated once there is a strong leader to follow. Using horses as a corporate team building tool can give your business leaders the chance to learn how to be an authentic leader; a leader that people will follow and trust.
It has been proven that the more senses that are engaged, the greater the likelihood that new learning will be retained. What you learn is important however, what you remember is priceless. Working with horses creates a unique memory that causes the attendee to remember the training far longer than if sitting in ‘just‐another‐classroom’.
Participation, retention, fun and oh yeah…. a horse!
