STEP OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE & EMPOWER YOUR STAFFS' POTENTIAL!
Sure, paintball is a fun team building activity and all, but at the end of the day, where is the application back into your workplace? Your school or organisation is one of a kind, shouldn’t your Team Building and Leadership development events be too?
Enhance communication and collaboration and enjoy a more motivated, engaged and cohesive team!
Team building and Skills Development in the workplace significantly contributes towards building trust among the employees and motivating individuals to enhance their level of communication, creativity and motivation, thereby ensuring better productivity and ultimately attaining your team’s goals. The flow on effect from a team collaborating well and feeling valued as individuals, strengthens the overall team performance ultimately lifting your school or organisation’s results.
Jess works extensively with youth and is in regular communication with parents, teachers, carers, case managers, social workers and other staff employed through schools, community and government organisations. A reoccurring response is "I wish that the people I work with (who are the people that are engaging with our young people) could experience the same learning with the horses and develop these same skills!"
The "Team's Leading Change" workshop has made this not only a possibility, but a viable and unique option as part of your team's skill development or team building training day. The workshop has a strong focus on interpersonal skill development. The transferable skills and competencies help us interact, communicate, and collaborate with others effectively. Typical examples of interpersonal skills include empathy, active listening, and emotional intelligence. Interpersonal skills permeate all areas of life and are equally important in both personal and professional interactions.
Our workshop develops the awareness of the following:
Why Choose Experiential Training?
Experiential learning is any learning that supports participants in applying their knowledge and conceptual understanding to real-world problems or authentic situations where the teacher facilitates learning.
At Leading Change Experiences, every unique experiential training session ensures effective skill development that is fun and memorable, and will deliver the results you are looking for. Horses are particularly effective at delivering professional development through leadership training. Horses are a prey animal who learn to adapt so that they can survive in the herd.
They demand skills and attributes such as confident leadership, powerful decision making skills from moment to moment, trust, respect, support, and an acute awareness of what is going on around them within the herd and their broader environment. Following the example of herd dynamics, participants are taught to recognise the parallels between what the horse is teaching them, and how this relates to their personal and professional life. Read more about why we use horses here.
Herds to horses are just like teams to people.

Knowledge is memorised, experience is gained, but skills teach us to use the knowledge and experience! Through our interactive team building and professional development workshop, we give your employees the skills they need to create a cohesive workplace. Several studies have identified collaboration as the key factor that drives workplace performance.
By investing in your team and future leaders, your school or organisation has the potential to empower it's own culture.
The three main attributes of a successful employee are knowledge, skills and experience.
We can help increase productivity, communicate efficiently, increase the understanding and awareness of others, connect individuals to their authentic leadership and communication styles and boost team moral!
Our "Teams Leading Change" Workshop goes for 4.5 hours. Coffee, tea, water and a catered lunch are included.

* Please note, due to the nature of the programs with the horses, we can take a maximum of 8 participants at each workshop. However if your school, organisation or department requires a workshop for up to 12 participants, we can tailor the day by utilising an external leadership trainer.
