Playshops for Leaders and Teams
Serving organizations and communities
We design, develop, and deliver customized programs for team engagement and leader development for skill sets to foster innovation and collaboration, embrace and productively utilize conflict, and master strategic planning and follow-through.
Experiential learning has been shown to be more effective than passive learning. Interaction with horses and nature provides powerful learning experiences because the interactive experience changes and evolves — just like the workplace it is a changing environment. And, have we mentioned how being in a beautiful, mountain setting with colleagues for a day can literally change team dynamics?
In today’s world, leaders and organizations face multiple challenges and can no longer rely upon traditional formulas to be successful. At First Nature Ranch, offer workshops, retreats, and private sessions that utilize hands-on experience with horses and the natural world to create organizational success.
Outcomes and Results of Learning at First Nature Ranch Include:
Stronger Leadership & Improved Teamwork
Increased Emotional Intelligence
Effective Communication & Listening
Boost Trust & Commitment
Enhanced Relational Skills & Ability to Positively Influence Others
Greater Creativity in Problem Solving
Personal Responsibility & Conflict Resolution Skills
Elevated Morale & Accountability

“I want to express my appreciation to you for the coaching assistance you have given Paul over the past few months. He is really organized and on top of things now. His confidence and productivity have dramatically increased to levels that I never even dreamed of. We just had our company holiday party and Paul was singled out from fourty employees to win an award , as the employee who made the most significant change in productivity over the past year!” A.S., Insurance company, NJ
"“I felt like you helped me shift my basic paradigm so much that none of the stuff I've read about abundance or done with it in the past feels all that important. You really messed with my thinking in the best possible way, and I feel like I GET it and that's it's pretty simple. This has changed my thinking in a fundamental way. I don't believe I could backslide to my old way even if I tried now--it would feel too false." J.M., OR
