The Ewe-niversity of playful learning

“Raising the Baa is about making sure we are all working as a team… not just thinking we are.”
– Head of GI Actuarial, NFU Mutual

Leadership development with livestock

When it comes to leadership and team development, we are firm believers in the school of sheep. Why?

  • They’re unpredictable like a classroom can never be
  • They bring authentic team dynamics to the surface
  • They create fun, live learning moments

The centuries-old task of herding sheep into a pen might sound simple in principle. But sheep are as changeable as a business quarter, and they move much faster.

As DAS Legal Expenses Insurance discovered, “If you don’t communicate, you don’t have a plan, and you don’t work as a team – you’re never going to get those sheep into the pen.”

Do you act like a sheep, a shepherd or a dog? Take our super quick quiz to find out.

Lightbulb moments for you and your team

Sometimes it takes sheep to lift the wool from your eyes. They create a unique environment that has the power to:

  • Unearth unexpected leaders
  • Highlight communication skill gaps
  • Boost confidence for quieter team members.

Our experienced coaches (and professional shepherds) will be there to guide you, keep the fun high, and help your team to draw actionable insights from the experience.

LAMB programme

2.5 hours

Less time for psychology but just as much opportunity for team bonding – and there’s still time for a piece of home-made cake!
