Corporate Team Building
“When God created the horse, he said to the magnificent creature: I have made thee as no other. All the treasures of the earth shall lie between thy eyes.”
What is Equine Assisted coaching and team building?
Equine Coaching differs from therapy in that it focuses on enhancing people’s lives so that they can better define and achieve their goals. Unlike therapy, coaching is not about alleviating suffering, rather it’s about creating greater satisfaction in life. Likewise, team building is about understanding and optimizing how individuals function in a team, and how to create greater synergy to enhance work satisfaction, creativity and productivity.
Horses are perfect partners in this work as they invoke a sense of awe and wonder, and most people want to connect with them. They are also prey animals and hyper-sensitive to their environment. This sensitivity allows them to respond and often mirror human emotions in an obvious and non-judgmental fashion. Horses don’t pay attention to our words; rather they are deeply in tune with our purpose and intentions. Simply put, horses don’t have an agenda they just tell it like it is. When horses communicate through their actions, people listen and learn. In addition, people behave in the pasture where we work, much like they act in their daily lives. They bring their mind, body and spirit into the session in a way that is not possible when just conversing. With the help of the horses and the outdoor setting, we can get very “real” with clients, without becoming at all threatening. This environment allows for exciting and meaningful work to take place in a short amount of time.
