The workshop uses horses and a series of unmounted exercises to provide a very direct and honest assessment of attendees leadership style. The experience will teach and empower those who attend by channelling and simplifying their intentions, body language, thoughts, emotions and energy into simple, effective, and focused messages. Thus enabling you to take on a range of communications, leadership, and problem-solving roles.
This is an experiential workshop that uses horses to give those seeking a team and leadership experience instant, honest and powerful insights into the way they project themselves in front of others, and how to set about tackling complex and/or novel tasks.
A series of exercises are carried out with horses unmounted in an enclosed, full-size (60m x 20m) sand dressage arena. Participants are asked to lead the horses around obstacle courses, individually and in teams, and to give directions and complex instructions to the horses. The horses are carefully selected for the manner in which they engage with humans and the whole process is videoed.
After a supplied lunch there is a discussion and analysis session watching the morning's activities, which is both fun and educational. In fact, the analytical process is a core component of the program as the feedback generated by the participants is key to understanding and fulfilling each individual's leadership and communication potential.
Participants have to engage the horses individually and to work together in teams to give a 500kg animal clear, precise and organised directions. Horses communicate through body language and non-verbal communication so overbearing, indecisive and conflicting messages confuse the horse, which mirrors the person or team leading them. They are not concerned with a person’s position, rank or wealth, responding only to the manner in which people conduct and project themselves.
