Ranch Day offers several formats, from custom experiences, to Two-hour and Half Day, Full Day, and Two Day, team building sessions or private retreats. All can be tied-in or geared toward your specific curriculum or mission.
If you're looking for a fun team building activity, our popular Leadership Exercise is a short two-hour workshop that gives your group a hands-on with horses experience. The exercise offers a number of challenges requiring cooperative teamwork, creativity and goal setting. Take aways include team cohesion, verbal and non-verbal communication, and leadership.
Half Days can include a higher degree of instructional learning combined with hands-on experiential learning in a lecture/exercise, seminar-based, format. Leadership, for example explores the tenants of trust-based leadership, and the Four Followers needs: Trust, Compassion, Stability, and Hope.
Workshop modules can be delivered in combination with hands-on groundwork with horses exercises for an experiential skills-based learning experience. Topics range from mindfulness to goal setting and mind mapping. Workshops can be delivered in two-hour to half day formats and can be purchased individually or as an ongoing series.
Full Day Retreats are custom formatted. A Ranch Day Retreat includes all seven modules from the book including: Leadership, Goal Setting, Non Verbal Communication, Mindfulness, Visualization, and Work Ethic. All skills-based lessons resulting in transformational personal and leadership development, facilitated by certified trainer and author of A Ranch Day Retreat, Chuck Wolf. A Ranch Day Retreat can be delivered in full day or two-day formats.
If you are facilitating your organizations retreat, our staff will work to tie-in as much or as little of your material to equine facilitated learning exercises as you like. Did you know that just the presence of an animal in a learning environment dramatically increases the retention of the materials presented? We will work with you to customize the perfect agenda and activities for your Ranch Day. You are always encouraged to co-facilitate. We may explain why a leaders need to instill trust, compassion, stability and hope, but you can best detail what that means to your IT department, or customer base, or brand. Ideally your group can work together to flesh out those answers, and what they mean to them.
Your goals may be activity based, mission-based, skills based, planning based, or contemplation based, or a combination. The purpose of retreat is to renew and recharge. Board and Executive retreats are often all work, in a different place. That's fine and we have an amazing, different place, to do that. If a more contemplative retreat is what you have in mind, we have an abundantly natural setting with the added benefits of ideal animal energy. It's what makes equine therapies instantly impactful. Let us know the contemplative level you desire for your day and and we will provide the appropriate activities, exercises and opportunities.
