In team building, U is for....?

Sheep Dip with Raising the Baa

Dec 7 2022 • 13 mins

In the shepherding world and at Raising the Baa we find U a perplexing letter to use, as its pronunciation describes a female sheep.  And for those who are familiar with our communications it is apparent that we substitute EWE for U more often than not!
And we love it when people start using it when conversing back since we reckon we've got a real fan 😊

Continuing our series, The A-Z of Team Building, the following topics are unpacked:
- one of the absolute basics underpinning every aspect of a team and its dynamics
- the impact and reasons for change - which elements can last the course
- consequences of one action on another and the importance of communicating them

This series was inspired by the many lessons learned by our clients following their experience of Raising the Baa. And we punctuate it with a few insights of our own too.

Expect plenty of analogies from the world of sheep and dogs from Head Shepherd & Founder of Raising the Baa, Chris Farnsworth, in these short and lively conversations with Paul Warriner, our Lead Facilitator.

Enjoy - and thank ewe for listening 😊

In the final draw of the year, the prize is a hand-made sheep's wool hot water bottle cover - to keep ewe snuggly warm in an eco-friendly and ecological way :-)
