1. Corporate – leadership and development

Diamond Blue Stables offers high impact leadership programs designed to support people to become authentic and transformational leaders in the workplace.

The experiential, or learning by doing programs create an opportunity for people to gain valuable insights about themselves and others, outside of the office environment and within an atmosphere of fun and creativity.

The two programs, Leading Yourself and Others; and Creating Meaning in the Workplace, are delivered in workshop format.

The two programs focus on key theories and practices relating to emotional intelligence, transformational leadership and positive psychology. They are designed to help people successfully navigate the complexities of employee relationships in the workplace by developing a greater degree of empathy and emotional intelligence. There is also a focus on helping people to become more emotionally resilient. People are equipped to manage relationship dynamics with purpose and enthusiasm.

Session Format

Sessions are divided into three main components

When people first arrive they are welcomed into the counselling or briefing area. In this initial interaction Zoe works in collaboration with people to set goals for the session and to reflect on what has shifted or changed since the last session.

After the goal setting component people are supported to interact with the horses in a guided and meaningful way. This interaction involves spending time with the horses and completing a variety of exercises aimed at raising awareness and learning new skills. Zoe will facilitate the interactions through gentle discussion and feedback.

To end the session, people are invited to reflect on their experience. This component of the session typically involves moving back to the counselling area. People are supported to engage in a journalling or artistic activity to capture what they have learned and to consider how it can be paralleled back to their current challenges.

Other considerations

Zoe will decide where the interactions with the horses take place, depending on the goals of the session, the weather, and the comfort level of the people accessing the service. Sessions can be delivered in the stable complex, the roundyard, the outdoor arena or the enclosed barn.

The safety of people and the well-being of the horses is paramount. Zoe provides a safety orientation at the beginning of initial sessions and is diligent in minimizing any risk throughout subsequent sessions.
