DEVELOPMENT for those in
Education & Health
Calling all Teachers, Principals, Nurses, Therapists, Physicians...
FOR EDUCATION & HEALTH PROFESSIONALS!
Are you looking to build skills including building relationships, communication, collaboration, leadership, and team work? Look no further, we have workshops for you!
EMPOWER YOUR PROFESSIONAL SELF.
As education and health professionals, we are always trying to help others, we often forget about ourselves. Being selfish during our work day is frowned upon, but it is important for us to not forget about ourselves, not get burned out and not feel empowered at work.
Empowering ourselves will lead to a happier and more productive work day – which in turn will enable us to offer our best self to the individuals we are helping every day.
REVEAL HIDDEN DYNAMICS.
Horses reveal the hidden strengths and passions in each of us, or on the flip side, those strengths and passions that may have been forgotten by an individual. The activities the professional works through with others are designed to facilitate leadership, collaboration, and problem solving to attain positive results.
The human-horse interaction enables team building and leadership development resulting in and identifying individual and team passion and “super powers”.
Other professional workshop environments or options do not necessarily build trust, collaboration, and communication like our results-oriented, objectively driven programs.
Our uniquely tailored programs are completed in a fun and engaging environment with 1200 pound teachers, the horses. These teachers provide immediate feedback, leading to immediate results you can take back to your professional environment.
"This was so unexpected. I was skeptical to begin with, couldn’t think how this would be relevant to leadership. It is totally relevant."
BUILD COMPETENCY YOU WILL ACTUALLY USE AND NOT FORGET!
The experiences made while working with horses will enable the professional to remember the skills far longer than if they were to sit in another “classroom”. The teachers are not ridden and provide us with honest feedback and powerful answers to how we lead, collaborate and problem solve. Knowledge can be learned, experience is gained over time and exposure; however, skills are the foundational base needed to use the knowledge and experience one has gained.
ORIGINAL, MEMORABLE, & RESULTS-ORIENTED SOLUTIONS.
Experiential Learning... Why?
Herds to Horses are just like Teams to People. This unique style of horse/human interaction is an effective approach to team building and leadership development and is a powerful metaphor for the work environment.
Enjoyable and Hands On
Experiences are paralleled back to the work environment. No matter what senses and learning styles the professional uses to learn, they will transfer the learning to situations that arise in that environment.
Cooperative and Collaborative
Professionals don’t work alone; they work in teams which need to work together. Whether that be a team of teachers and students, administrators and parents, nurses and doctors, or a whole multidisciplinary health professional unit, in order to fulfill our individual role’s we need to collaborate. Communication is key and understanding how to effectively communicate with others, no matter who they are within your team, will make you all unstoppable.
All programs are based on the objectives and goals you have in mind, to ensure you are getting the results that you want! Where do you want to go professionally? What skills do you need to build your professional competency? What outcomes do you want and need?
MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF A SUCCESSFUL HEALTH OR EDUCATION PROFESSIONAL:
PASSION, SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCE
All professionals rely on interpersonal communication to help others whether that be a student, client/patient, or other professional. All professionals are passionate about what they do but sometimes we need to build our knowledge a different way to truly remember our passion. That’s why we offer our Professional Development Workshops.
"That was such a powerful experience that I have been still talking about it with all my ‘teams’! Thank you so much for being such a wise and gentle facilitator and to your team of horses for being such great teachers."
THROUGH OUR EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROCESS, EDUCATION & HEALTH PROFESSIONALS WILL:
Increase collaboration through finding solutions to problems and recognizing strengths and weaknesses.
Innovative, memorable and results-oriented solutions. Give your leaders the skills training and development to grow for themselves and your community.

DEEDEE - JOURNEY COUNSELLING
WARNING: YOU ARE GOING TO ENJOY THIS A LOT!!!!
In order for new learning to be retained, sometimes one must step out of their comfort zone! The more senses that are engaged in the learning process, the better. If you are looking for successful learning, then you have found a place to take yourself to a new level of professional development. Horses look to leaders who are trustworthy and respectful - and isn’t that who you want to be? Develop those leaders at Silver Horseshoes Development, in this one-of-a-kind experiential learning program. Change is guaranteed because you can’t fool the teachers.
