Founder of Medicine Horse Ranch, Alyssa Aubrey, Helps Corporations Achieve Creativity, Innovation And Change
Founder and Executive Director of Medicine Horse Ranch, Alyssa Aubrey talks about the resistance to change that results in stagnation in corporations and reveals that vulnerability – something corporations don’t want – actually gives birth to the attributes they most want.
TOMALES, CA – September 08, 2018 – Alyssa Aubrey, Founder of Medicine Horse Ranch and co-author of the best-selling book, The Road To Success, recently posted a new article on her website entitled, “The Birthplace Of Creativity, Innovation And Change.” Ms. Aubrey discusses what could seem like a dilemma for corporations who have a history of doing everything possible to avoid appearing vulnerable.
Aubrey writes, “Research Professor, Brené Brown has given a few Ted Talks which I find fascinating and relevant to my work as a Horse Assisted Education Trainer.” She continues adding, “One of her talks is about vulnerability and another is about shame. Both are qualities no one in corporate America looks for as positive attributes when considering employees – especially not qualities they want in anyone in a management role.”
As Aubrey points out, “Corporations are typically looking for creativity, innovation and change. However, according to Brown’s talk about shame, she says, “Vulnerability is the birthplace of creativity, innovation and change.” She goes on to explain that shame is what stops us from allowing ourselves to be seen as vulnerable.” Aubrey goes on to say that, “In addition she tells her audience that the one thing most humans hunger for is connectivity. We all want to experience a sense of real belonging which requires authenticity. Once again, she adds, “vulnerability is the key to authenticity.” https://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_listening_to_shame/transcript?language=en
“Ms. Brown tells us that we need to start “talking” about our shame,” writes Aubrey, adding, “But, the question is how do we safely identify it in the workplace? How do we find a safe place to explore these hidden emotions? How do we bring them out in order to begin a discussion?”
According to Aubrey, “Horse Assisted Education (HAE) is a growing method of team and management training in corporations around the country. And it makes sense when you consider how management training has been done historically. Typically management training takes place behind 4 walls. But, no one within those walls are courageous enough to show signs of vulnerability or authenticity.”
