“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
When it comes to leadership and team development, we are firm believers in the school of sheep. Why?
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.
Choose from one of our programmes outlined below and we’ll come to a field which suits you best.
Guaranteed to whisk your team away from their routine of their regular workspace and into the unpredictability of farm life.
If you’re in need of a hotel or conference facilities we can set you up through our venue partners – or we can help you find another suitable location.
Full day event. Our flagship programme, with around six hours of activities designed to delve into people’s personal psyches and uncover team dynamics.
Stories and experimentation have space to really develop in this time.
We also capture it all on film, providing you with your own highlights reel and perfect catalyst for future learning.
If success, however you define it, is your key driver this is the programme you need.
Bespoke, modular multi-day programme.
Sheep herding with bells on: before-and-after field days sandwiched with an in-person or virtual workshop based on footage from your team’s experience.
Backed up by your choice of business psychology, personality profiling or other analysis.
3.5 hours An extended half-day exercise, with more time in the field than the LAMB programme.
This extra breathing room allows more opportunity for fun experimentation, problem-solving and learning.
You’ll also receive a Baa-rometer report on your team’s performance.
Less time for psychology but just as much opportunity for team bonding – and there’s still time for a piece of home-made cake!
Perfect for a hospitality or celebratory event based more around fun than learning (though of course, some lessons are inescapable!).
We can film and edit a highlight reel as an optional extra.
Smile and enjoy the experience. Discover skills you never knew you and your team had!
Grab a copy of our 10-point checklist and make sure the one you choose ticks all your boxes.
It’s FREE and will be with you in two shakes of a lamb’s tail 🐑
