Ewe and I make a great team: a story of sheep and team development

August 16, 2021

A run through the countryside demonstrated how a group can quickly become a team when faced with an unexpected challenge.

Two ewes and four lambs were out of their field and roaming the woods on a local running route, so we responsibly set about coaxing them back through the gate to the rest of their flock. Only a video could do justice to the comedy value of a group waving, bahhing, heading off sheep and trying to behave like sheepdogs. However, on reflection, we went through the following team development process…

> Individuals’ attempts failed
> Individual roles were assigned
> A period of high intensity learning and improvement (sheep still out)
> Refined and improved techniques were implemented (moving more subtly)
> Team members played to strengths (blocking exit paths)
> Success (sheep back in field)

And were we proud of our sheep rescue? Ewe bet we were.

Team building for a modern workforce is important, and more and more people are looking for fun and interesting ways to learn beyond the standard model.

Teambuilding needn’t be restricted to a conference suite. If you would like to explore teambuilding activities in rural Hertfordshire with or without sheep just 30 minutes from Central London then give us a call.
