Horses provide in the moment feedback on how you lead and help you find new ways of leading to create a more powerful, compelling impact
Power and influence
Horses only follow an assertive leader who leads with strength and gentleness, courage and compassion, trust and mutual respect. You learn how to step out of your comfort zone and create maximum impact with minimum effort.
Horses respond in the present moment so they provide non-judgmental feedback in a non-threatening manner, based on how you lead in every moment. They show you what is working and what is not.
Clarity of communication
Horses communicate non-verbally so they use body language to mirror your leadership behaviour. It’s not what you say but how you say and do it that makes a difference. When you communicate non-verbally with clarity and intent, you get the result you ask for.
Unlike humans, horses do not interact with inauthentic behaviour. They engage with subtle nuances of your energy and emotions, requiring you to drop the mask in order for them to co-operate. They highlight unconscious bias and encourage you to embrace and include difference.
Horses are a herd animal and are inclusive so they show how to embrace differences of opinion with ease. They model trust and mutual respect, where everyone gets a say in what they want and you improve your ability to handle conflict and differences of opinion.
And so much more…
You try new ways of leading and recalibrate your leadership style on a moment by moment basis, in a variety of situations. The result is that you learn what you most need to learn to have more impact and influence.
How we work
Activities are performed on the ground, leading horses individually and as part of a team. No riding is involved and no experience of horses is required.
