Ready to move your Leaders and Leadership Teams to the next level?
I would love to share a unique, powerful program that has been receiving rave reviews for over ten years. Whether you are looking for an off site for a senior leadership team, an experiential component for your existing leadership development program, an intervention for a team that is struggling, a way to get your aspiring leaders to shift away from a task focus we have something unique to offer.
We work with horses because we can get results, better and faster and with more impact than classroom learning, team challenges or simulations. To earn the trust and respect of a horse you must genuinely act in a way that demonstrates vision, clarity, confidence, empathy and persistence *without* depending on control, bribery or hierarchy. Horses have no facade so they won’t pretend to follow while really feeling disengaged.
If what you are doing works you will know it instantly – and if not you’ll know that too. .All our work with horses is done under supervision and most of it is on the ground. You can even do the whole session without interacting directly as horses will respond from 30 ft away.
Behavioural change that improves performance.
We don’t stop with the “aha’s” interacting with the horses bring- we immediately transfer the learnings. We raise awareness with the horses, exposing mindsets and unconscious behaviour patterns, then we consciously select new behaviours, test them out, appreciate the positive impact and plan follow up that ensures results.
- You will learn the four mindsets every leader needs in order to be effective.
- You will learn the secrets to understanding anyone’s perspective.
- You will learn how to shift from fixing the past to creating the future.
- You will learn the specific actions that build trust and respect
- You will learn how to tell if your intentions are being interpreted correctly.
You will notice a difference immediately and the difference lasts. We meet with clients ten years after their session and they can still tell us exactly what they learned and what impact that learning had. Relationships will be improved. Priorities will be better aligned, .Leaders will have new ways of engaging their staff. Teams will be communicating better.
Its an experience you will never forget.
This is experiential learning at its finest. Head, Hands, Heart and Spirit all engaged in a positive, powerful learning process that has been proven to have significant impact. No one ever forget the lessons they learned with the horses.
We work with:
- Aspiring Leaders taking the Leap from Top Performer to Authentic Leader.
- Executive Teams who want to Inspire Organizations
- HR Advisors looking for Team Building that isn’t a Waste of Time.
- Leadership Development programs that want to bring their Core Learnings to Life.
- Organizations undergoing Cultural Change.
Our clients include a wide range of industries and organizations and we have special rates for non profits. Companies like Johnson and Johnson, Kraft Canada, the University of Guelph, Pfizer, Social Services organizations, Manufacturing organizations and many more have all gained a bit of Horse Sense.
Our facilitators are senior management consultants with over 20 years of experience designing and delivering leader and team development programs. We rely on a solid theoretical foundation in accelerated learning, systems thinking, appreciative inquiry, change management, situational leadership, trust building, neuroscience,and much more.
If you’d like some insight into how this works download our “spoiler” exercise and we will show you how greeting a horse leads to significant insight into the underlying mindsets that drive behaviour. We use Chris Argyris’s ladder of inference, personality styles, and active listening as the theoretical framework. Please don’t pass this along to your participants as it will give away one of the first “aha’s” of the day – don’t worry though there are many more!
