Just for Fun Sheep-herding

'Big' birthday party? Company anniversary? Weekend away with friends? Christmas jolly?

If it's a celebration you're after without all the feedback, analysis and strategic filming, we've created Baa-gatelle™. Think pinball with sheep - though be reassured, no animals are harmed in this event!

Combine with a picnic lunch or afternoon farmhouse tea and cakes.

(Sorry, no hen or stag parties please)

Personality Profiling

Have you ever linked sheep to personality profiling?

No, we didn’t think so

Yet it makes perfect sense when you stop and think about it.

Our Raising the Baa activities involve all the dimensions typically found in a more traditional personality profiling tool including confidence, assertiveness, communication, decision-making, influencing and leadership.

We work with a number of licensed practitioners of a range of profiling tools or you may prefer to integrate your current system.

Assessment Centres

“Great team player” is often cited on candidate CVs. But how to prove it?

The group exercise of sheep-herding only succeeds if everyone plays a role and is fully committed to the task. As the ‘baa’ is raised the programme brings out the true nature of candidates, especially in terms of how they respond to and interact with others under pressure. Decision-making, listening skills and the ability to lead and delegate are all highlighted – and the sheep are the ultimate judge!

Find out how Raising the Baa can help with your recruitment and selection process.
