LeaderSenseEQ, our cutting edge equine facilitated leadership development program, is internationally-licensed by HorseDreamUSA®. We engage participants in immersive experiences rooted in the recognition that all things are intimately interconnected and explicable only in reference to the whole, a concept key to successful leadership and paramount to inclusive excellence. Our approach, though not yet widely used in leadership education in the United States, is commonplace and has been implemented for over 20 years in many other countries in the world (i.e. Spain, Mexico, Israel, Canada, Germany, and Austria, to name a few) and within all different types of organizations.
Through interaction with the horses and one another, participants explore topics deeply connected to leadership including self-awareness, communication, trust, respect, responsibility, honesty, integrity, and goal achievement. This exploration creates perspective broadening, game changing leadership transformation. In the serenity of nature, far removed from the hustle and bustle of city and corporate life, participants have a unique opportunity to reflect on their leadership style, reconnect with their true nature within, and transform into powerful, effective leaders.
Art of LeaderSense - 1 Day
Leadership and career are inter-related. It is a big leap from being a manager, senior manager, vice president to board member. Do you want to know what people think of your leadership style? How are you perceived? What signals do you send out unconsciously? Using the principles of experiential learning, we will lead you through hands-on exercises that explore:
Leading positions and leadership styles
The comfort zone of your employees
Public, social/business, personal and intimate distances
Communication without a mask
360-degree feedback and the meta-feedback of horses
Honing a Unified Team - 1-Day
This program is designed once we understand the goals of the group for this experience. Our typical 2-day program for teams explores individual leadership styles and how that contributes to the team, team roles, effective collaboration and builds the bonds of the group or team through a series of amazing equine experiences.
Equine Immersion Experience - Multi-Day
Over the course of 2-3 days, this program takes participants on a journey that enables leadership principles such as presence, capability, power, intuition and inclusion to grow and integrate into their being. Participants experience a transformation over this period of time as they bond with each other and examine their image with equine guidance. They deepen their understanding of who they are and how that is reflected in their work, partnerships, collaborations, community and family. They will improve alignment and coherence between their inner voice and their external presence. They go deep into a discovery of what they want and need to be whole and complete in their lives and how they manifest this at work.
