Dear Mr. Grey,
I wanted to let you know how much my team appreciated all of the educational benefits and professionalism shown to us by your staff during the retreat at your facility on 22 and 23 July 2011.
After the event, I asked for feedback on the value of your program. I would like to share just a few of the comments that my staff provided;
In conclusion this journey was one I truly will never forget and one I feel that we should have again in the future. Grey Wolf Ranch has given me more empowerment in my personal and career life. CG
I believe Daniel had a great way of shining a positive light on any subject by using metaphors and alternate perspectives. The trip helped me realize that I had to be stronger with my decisions and to let go of the negative thoughts. Being a positive person will help me to deal with my struggles at home and in the work place. I believe that every person should have a chance to experience the Grey Wolf Ranch to help them become better people. I appreciate all that I have in life and will never regret my past. This experience will remain in my heart until the day I die. CH
The weekend was a great success; I got to know most everyone on the team on a more personal level and really enjoyed that. I loved riding Chippewa, we became one and I could have road him home. I have scheduled a 3 hour trip for my dad and myself on the 13th of Aug because I just think it is such a worth wild event. I now he will love it and I hope he learns from it also. Thank you very much for the great opportunity you gave us all. PU
Most courses that I have attended have had 500-2000 people attending. Typically you worked with a breakout group for several hours before the group broke up and formed different groups. At Grey Wolf, you are working with Daniel directly most of the time in while group of around 10, and smaller groups of either the one on one or in a small group of four or five. There are opening exercises were Daniel sizes you up and uses that information to select horses that will test you appropriately. The horses become a living metaphor for how to work with your team members. I've attended numerous personal development courses and found this one by far superior. RM
The experience I had a Grey Wolf Ranch was quite amazing. I wasn't sure what to expect when we got there but soon learned it would be an opportunity to learn more about myself and those others that came. Applying the "soft but firm" approach of riding a horse to myself makes a lot of sense to me. I've been known to be too soft and occasionally too firm. One take away I have is to be more aware of how I am handling a particular situation, whether it be at work or at home. JC
I think the trip to Grey Wolf Ranch was wonderful. I think it help point out some key points in my work relationships. It definitely will help me be more vocal in meetings or on one on one situations. Applying the concepts learned at the Grey Wolf Ranch will help people understand that I have a belief in what I'm saying and benefit me at work and in my personal life. TD
Daniel, I personally have attended over a dozen professional management training seminars in addition to many teambuilding events over the course of the past few years. The program that was provided by you, your team and the horses was an enlightening experience that has taught me skills that have, and will continue to significantly benefit me both professionally and personally for the rest of my life. I highly recommend your program as it is by far superior to any of the others that I have attended. In fact, I believe that the experience has had such a positive affect on the professional aspects and working relationships of my in-house staff that I will be scheduling another event at your ranch for several of my field team members in the very near future.
