How Horses Can Guide Us Back To Our Senses
Horses and Leadership
Living day-to-day in the corporate world has a tendency to cut us off from nature and our deepest instincts. Leaders in the corporate arena often receive their training from other leaders nourished in the corporate environment.
For many who find themselves in leadership positions or wanting to go for a leadership position, there may be resistance to the role for any number of reasons. Typically, these reasons consist of feeling unprepared, or lacking specific skills. Fear of failing and fear of wandering too far out of an established comfort zone also come into play.
Being around animals and in nature opens human consciousness and allows our instinctive connection to the natural world to open and inform us, restoring our spirit and our hope for the world we live in. Equine Guided Education programs take leaders, teams and individuals out of the day-to-day familiar confines of the conference room and into the natural world.
The combination of human coaches and horses marries real-world acumen with the emotional intelligence necessary to achieve authentic leadership potential.
The environment is one in which participants can learn to be aligned to their highest self, calling and greatest good.
Horses live in energy. Energy is what they (and we) respond to first.
Horses have no hidden agenda. They are not impressed with the kind of car you drive, the neighborhood you live in, how much money you earn, your education or business acumen. They don’t play politics, can’t be bribed, nor can they be intimidated. As such, horses provide a dramatic picture of how effective (or not) our leadership practices and skills are.
Equine Guided Educational workshops are instrumental in leading humans back to their natural senses. Workshops can help:
- Strengthen communication
- Increase efficiency
- Expand one’s sphere of influence
- Turn obstacles into opportunities
- Become more effective and inspiring team leaders
