Meeting planners are consistently challenged to find corporate team building activities that are new, interesting, and effective. And that’s exactly where horses come in! Equine-assisted team building activities can foster critical thinking, help people re-engage with their co-workers, and define or reinforce their place in the larger corporate culture.
A recent article in Meetings Net, featured as the Event of the Month, showcased equine-assisted team building activities by Berkshire HorseWorks. The nonprofit organization’s approach to team building has been used to:
- Define how employees can work as a team toward a common goal such as increased productivity or landing a new client
- Work with staff to adapt to a company’s new management style and initiatives
- Navigate cultural differences and cultivate empathy
- Learn crisis mitigation
- Prepare for an IRS audit
- Build camaraderie
Berkshire HorseWorks offers corporate team building activities in sessions of 90 minutes, half-day or full-day workshops, and customized multi-day retreats. For more information contact Hayley Sumner at (310)488-9777.
