Sheep Herding

Team Building with Sheep

A team building event like no other, where the animals are the judge not you or your ‘team leader’. What’s your natural tendency in life? The shepherd, the sheepdog or the sheep?

And what about the people who you mix with most in your life?

Learning Objectives

This exercise, which is run in partnership with Raising the Baa, focuses on trust and communication. Some team members will be more confident than others and therefore it encourages all members to be supportive and considerate and to realise each other’s strength’s and weaknesses.

It also encourages coaching skills, as teams have to communicate, direct and encourage their colleagues.

Challenge yourself and your team today!

The sheep-herding exercise is a real balance of listening to one another and letting each other try out new ideas - and just seeing if they worked"
