    We hear a lot about team building these days. Team-building gurus are hired by some corporations to lecture us on how to work more effectively with each other. And they organise1 awaydays - a time employees spend together away from their usual workplace.
    Here in the UK, employees can take part in activities such as Zombie boot camps where military instructors2 train you how to fight walking 'dead people'. For the brainier office workers amongst us there are crime investigations3 modelled on popular TV dramas like Sherlock Holmes and CSI.
    Stressed-out city workers might have ukulele lessons made available to them. Why is that a good team-building exercise? Ukulele teacher Lorraine Bow says: "The fact that they can play a musical instrument within an hour is quite a fulfilling thing, really. It's not competitive – it's quite easy to do and a bit less intimidating4 than a guitar…"
    Actually, a horse might be a bit more intimidating than an instrument. The animals are used by a company in Abu Dhabi which teaches leadership through horse training. Basically, you have to go in a yard with a horse and persuade it that you're the boss by using body language.
    Kelly Eide, co-founder of True Leadership, says: "The horses don't care if your hair is purple, if you're a man or a woman, if you're old or young... It transcends5 all of those cultural boundaries – age, gender6, religion, tradition etc. – so that's a perfect fit. And in an organization where you really need groups of people to gel, who come from backgrounds which have no common norms, you can teach that most efficiently7 with a horse."
    And the horse feels instinctively8 whether or not you are a natural leader. So if after you've done a good presentation your boss offers you a carrot, you'll know where he might have learnt it from.
