“Careers are a jungle gym, not a ladder”
– Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook
Our Women’s Programs are designed specifically for groups of women within organisations. For example, to support those re-entering the workplace after any prolonged break including maternity or carers leave. Workshops restore confidence and empower participants. Contents can be tailored to the needs of different groups, with a focus on skills such as communication, assertiveness, teamwork and inclusion in a neutral, non-threatening environment.
Horses provide learning opportunities by reflecting back to us what we project to the outside world. “Everything a horse does is communication. Communication is information. The best we can do with it is learn from it, instead of taking it personally.”
We can learn from horses in such a way that involves us physically, emotionally and mentally. Sometimes we don’t like what we see in the mirror. Often we are not aware of how we appear to others. If we are willing to accept how a horse reacts to us, we can learn so much about ourselves and how to better understand and communicate with others.
Our programs assist in developing:
- Improved decision making
- Stronger communication skills
- Professional and personal goal-setting
- Greater personal accountability
- More self-awareness
- Greater personal understanding
- Trust in one’s self and others
- Emotional, physical, mental and spiritual wellness
- Reduced anxiety
