"What Shadow Do You Cast?"
As managers, having an effective team around us is crucial. However, managing other people is an area that is often left to chance, which can lead to de-motivated individuals that do not feel part of the business and consequently do not perform.
This half-day workshop looks at what it takes to lead an effective team and examines ways to get the best out of the people in your team. Throughout, we ask delegates to reflect and consider ‘As a Manager, what shadow do you cast?’
During this workshop we will spend time working directly with our horses using Equine Assisted Learning. Delegates will get to experience in a unique and lasting way, how much influence their style of management has over others. All work with our horses will be on the ground and no previous horsemanship skills or experience are required.
Who is it for?
All managers who wish to reflect on their style of managing others and those who wish to get the best results from their team.
Managing people can be difficult. This workshop will enable managers to understand how much they influence the performance of the team and will examine what is necessary to transform a group of individuals into a high performing team.
- The workshop centres on the question ‘what shadow do you as a Manager cast’? Working with horses the feedback to this question will be instant. This is a powerful exercise to reinforce how much a manager can influence their team.
- What is successful leadership?
- Effective leadership – attitude, skills, and knowledge required
- Communication – a vital skill – why do we communicate the way we do?
- Understanding what makes a team successful and the stages and roles involved
- Motivating and building resilience within the team
- Managing Performance.
Managers will leave having reflected on their own personal style of managing and have a toolkit of techniques to use with their team back in the workplace.

Why use horses?
Horses are particularly well suited to help humans develop. Highly sensitive, prey animals they are tuned in to the moment. Horses respond to what’s happening around them. That may be through verbal or non-verbal communication, conscious or sub-conscious behaviour. Their feedback will be instant and honest. This is a unique way to reflect and develop leadership and personal development skills.
