Leadership with Horses

Leadership with Horses

Quite simply, horses are masters in teaching leadership skills. Horses are innately equipped to help us learn leadership lessons with lasting impact in a short amount of time. Less tangible and subtle, yet compelling, insights and awareness that can be difficult to access and integrate in normal training sessions are easily discovered in a safe and fun environment.

Why Horses?

Horses are consummate facilitators in the work of human development. Their size alone inspires a heightened state of awareness. Horses are social animals that readily and honestly respond to the challenges in building a trusting relationship.

Horse don’t lie. They see through the times when we say one thing but are really thinking and feeling another. In this way, they teach us the importance of congruence and the impact this has on leadership ability.  When working with horses, you receive immediate feedback about your communication (both verbal and non-verbal) and intention, thus honing emotional and social  intelligence. Horses have thrived as a species for thousands of years by relying on congruent communication and authentic leadership, competencies they easily teach to people. This work has important applications in how we relate to and lead people everyday.

There is no riding involved in this work with horses and those who have never been near a horse before can benefit from this powerful experience.

Working with horses offers the unique opportunity to:

  • Strengthen your nonverbal communication skills
  • Develop your emotional and social intelligence
  • Create a trust- based partnership
  • Increase your adaptability
  • Enhance your levels of initiative and commitment
