We are all leaders, some
lead themselves, some lead others. Being a congruent leader makes life
easier and more meaningful. This programme is designed to help everybody
lead the life they want to lead in the way they want to lead it.
Now that people are educated and think for themselves, we need a paradigm
shift in their development. Congruent, inspirational leadership by example
is the order of the day. This harmonious leadership is about four things: 1)
being clear about what you want at any given moment and understanding what
is congruent for you, 2) understanding your peers and those you are leading,
the way they think and communicate and 3) simultaneously focusing on both 1
and 2 in order to 4) take appropriate and effective action. This brings huge
benefits to yourself and everybody around you.
Equine Guided Leadership Development is a powerful experiential approach for
developing aligned personal skills in action by working in partnership with
horses. You try out your skills by working with a large, powerful horse to
do simple tasks. Why horses? Because horses are extremely canny herd animals
that only respond well to good congruent leadership and instinctively
challenge weak leaders. They don't have a personal agenda. They just respond
to who and how you are at any moment. Believe it or not, human-to-human
communication is 93% non-verbal yet most education and training concentrates
on the remaining 7%,words. The remaining 93% is largely neglected. This
means there is enormous scope to achieve a lot even with just a little work
on that 93%.
This is what makes horses so useful - 100% of a horse’s communication is
non-verbal. They don’t understand words, so you can’t smooth-talk them or
hoodwink them. They’re experts in non-verbal communication. And they’re big
and powerful, so intimidation is not an option. As you learn to lead a horse
without words (and without force), you are developing the neglected 93%. You
will be amazed at how instant and accurate the feedback is. Guaranteed.
