Team Building and
Group Equinistics is an experiential team building and leadership
workshop that provides for a group of participants to examine and
strengthen communication skills, improve healthy boundaries, empower
oneself to ask for help and work and feel a part of a team. Most
sessions involve some sort of challenge or problem that requires
conflict resolution. Working with horses in the challenge helps
individuals to learn about leadership, loyalty, trust and focus.
This is especially helpful when people need to work together, rely
on each other, work within deadlines, and deal with diverse
personalities and human characteristics.
Group Equinistic Workshop is intended for smaller groups and can be
customized to meet the needs of a particular group and the issues
their team is facing. The team will spend a day in a country
setting, have fun and learn about themselves and other members of
their team while learning how to communicate with horses.
Workshops with equine provide personal and group awareness that
cannot be obtained from any book, lecture, or memo. The horse
responds to leadership style and is a precise and truthful mirror
into a personís behaviour in leadership settings. The horse
responds negatively to someone who is overbearing or indecisive, or
when body language, verbal communication, actions, behaviours, and
emotions are incongruous.
Until they have interacted with a horse many people are not aware
that they are incongruent, uncooperative, contrary to team goals,
not in balance within themselves. Most people that work with a
horse in a team environment come away being better leaders and team
players because the feedback from the horse forces reflection on how
they lead, communicate or collaborate.
The Group Equinistic Workshop makes a person identify behaviours
that hinder personal growth, turn bad habits into healthy ones,
think outside the box, improve competence in dealing with others,
and build trust.
who work with others are influencing the lives of people in their
environment. This workshop is a great way to bridge self-awareness
and effective leadership and give everyone an opportunity to
increase personal and organizational success. The equine teaches
the basic principles: respect, accountability, teamwork, and
integrity. The most beneficial outcome that the group learns to
identify and capitalize on each memberís strengths.
These type of Team Building exercises with Equine would be good for
sports teams and would work well with relationship counselling for
strengthening personal relationships.
