According to Wikipedia, Corporate Training, “refers to a system of professional development activities provided to educate employees. It may consist of formal university or college training or informal training provided by non-collegiate institutions. The simplest form of corporate education may be training programs designed “in-house” for an organization that may wish to train their employees on specific aspects of their job processes or responsibilities.” This is the most consistent form of training that many corporations are aware of but have you ever felt that offering training in the same environment as your work might not be enough? Have you ever thought about what it might be like to mix things up and work with equine specialists?
At The Horse’s Way, we believe corporate training can be a lot more fun and done in a better setting that is guaranteed to provide a different level of results. That’s why we offer Equine-Assisted Corporate Training. This means we offer both traditional in-office corporate training as well as experiential equine assisted approaches as well! Accomplishing corporate goals requires leadership and team effort. When your group experiences leadership with horses, they will have more of what they need to effectively work together and overcome difficult obstacles. Important goals can quickly become reality. To effectively lead others you must first understand yourself. Horses are both leaders and followers, depending on their herd hierarchy. Horses are social animals and they provide valuable insight into group dynamics and roles. The horse acts as a mirror of emotions, reflecting the feelings of those working with them. Since horses cannot lie or over analyze true emotions, they are able to recognize incongruence between behavior and emotion, telling the true story of the human before them. Horses can open the eyes of our understanding and help us discover the keys to successful relationships, They are master teachers. If you can get a horse to trust and follow you, you can do the same with people!
Face-to-face communication is taking a back seat to email, texting and social media. Yet research shows the 90% of communication occurs non-verbally, leaving only 10% for verbal or written communication. With statistics like that it’s no wonder that our messages get lost in translation as face-to-face communication diminishes. Are you using the right communication methods to match the importance of priority of your message? When working with horses, they respond immediately to your message on a non-verbal level, They will illuminate your communication process and provide opportunities to try new ways of delivering your message, based on your actions and non-verbal communication.
