Soft  Skills  -- With Horses!     

Workshops for Individuals and Groups (up to 4)   

Activities take place out-of-doors and from a safe social distance.

Regardless of the job or industry, employees need to interact effectively with supervisors and others both above and below on the work chart, as well as with clients and prospects, vendors, patients, students, donors, etc.

Improved soft-skills can create a more effective and satisfying  workforce culture, improve customer / client /patient experience and outcomes,  increase staff retention and contribute to an improved bottom line. Oh - and people will probably like you better:)

WHY HORSES?  It's impossible to force a 1200 pound square peg into a round hole!

But as it turns out, these feats, and others more practical, can be accomplished with tact, diplomacy, creativity and other soft-skills,  Horses are highly sensitive creatures. They're prey animals whose primary concern is for their physical and emotional well-being. When a horse recognizes a balanced and benevolent "other" , they respond in a particular way. When a horse perceives tension, rigidity and lack of respect for their boundaries cooperation will not likely ensue.  

HORSES, LIKE PEOPLE, COME WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF PERSONALITIES AND MOODS

 (that might sound familiar as you have a glance around the office.)

 

We'd love for you to try this!         60 minutes / $75.

Comfort - Shmomfort

In what ways would your world be a little bit different if, more often than now, your inner voice were to remind you that "You Got This" ?

Think of something you've wanted to do . . . .try . .  but haven't?

Chances are, things would be a little different if you had, right?

What if you were to become a little more comfortable with , yep, you guessed it, getting out of your comfort zone. 

In theses fun-filled workshops we'll explore those moments . . .when you're willing and then suddenly  not - and gently question why and why not  / and very gently . . encourage you to stretch a little . . .try something you hadn't and shed light on the reflex that may be keeping you from greater joy or pride in everyday stuff.

Are we talking about risking your well-being? Heck no ! We're talking about things like moving a pony around a field with nothing but a pool noodle or set of chopsticks . . . .or maybe you're tasked to direct a horse through an obstacle course with just your left pinky. 

The goal is to give the inner-editor the afternoon off and play with horses who - when you're calm and committed, are most willing to cooperate with you. You'll see!
