Leadership & Management Skills


Course overview

The role of a manager is to achieve the desired organisational results through other people.

Management is a balancing act.  Not only are you responsible and accountable to people above, below and across from you, but you also need to constantly focus and refocus on the team, the task, the people in the team, and yourself. 

All four areas are inextricably interlinked.

To be effective, you will need to balance the amount of time and attention spent on each area. Your priorities will change at different times but you still need to address all areas as, over time, giving priority to one area can lead to problems if the others are neglected.

This workshop examines the many different aspects of managing people and centres around your behaviour and the influence you have over others.  Course content can be shaped to best fit the needs of your people and your organisation.


Why use horses?

Using horses can help humans develop and understand the dynamics within any team. Horses are highly aware, prey animals, tuned into the moment and keen observers. By working with them, we can gain insights into our own individual and team behaviours . Our learning experiences involve horses but you don’t need any previous experience with horses and you will not be riding horses.

Who is it for?

The course can be adapted for new appointed managers, team leaders or those about to become managers/team leaders. This course can also be tailored to accommodate more experienced managers.

Course outline

Our courses are bespoke and will be tailored to your objectives.  The example below shows a “typical” one day course, but elements and duration of our courses may vary depending on your business needs, which we always discuss with you in advance.  Advance psychometric profiling of attendees is also an option and our courses can be adapted and integrated with your current profiling and developmental solutions and tools e.g. DiSC, Tetramap, Myers Briggs etc.
