Leadership Training with Horses

Why horses?

Because Horse Sense means common-sense.

Leadership is about:

Developing your leadership consciousness. Having true willingness versus compliance:

Leadership isn’t just about getting people from one place to the other. Leadership is about how we lead, how we are perceived, and how we are received – are we aware of our body language, our attitude and our tone of voice. Our approach reflects these qualities or not.

A horse shows us what we truly need to do to inspire and lead people.

Understanding how to inspire people:

To a horse everything means something, nothing means nothing. Communication is not only about what we say but also about how we say it. A horse cares nothing about your title or position, only how much you care. Power is not an option, earn the authority to lead and your effort is rewarded.

Our ability to be able to face each other with trust and respect:

The horse will react to you exactly as you present yourself, reflecting your leadership style, how it’s perceived and received.  Valuable information indeed!

Creating the desire to be partners:

Looking at communication from another’s perspective without a word spoken can initiate profound change in one day. Looking at processes and process management from an integral perspective will open horizons.

Holding focus; acting and reacting with total awareness:

Horses help us understand the importance of integrity and trust through open, honest communication. It’s about team spirit, it’s about collaboration, joy, fun, and self development in your place of business. It’s about experiencing success as well as “success behind success”, as Fred Kofman puts it in  “Conscious Business”.
