Executive Leadership & Coaching
Confidence. Consciousness. Compassion
Our Leadership in Action programs combine robust leadership theory, models and tools with unique equine experiences for truly transformational learning. The result is an incredible opportunity to see the theory in practice, to deepen awareness of self, others and the environment, and to witness the impacts of changing one’s leadership style, communication and approach to others. We deliver local, national, and global services for a range of different client groups.clie
Our approach is directly modelled on how horses lead their herds in their natural environment, operating under a highly effective system of shared leadership, adopting roles that create collective responsibility and accountability for the safety and success of the entire group. Read more about our unique approach here.
Through our innovative approach:
Experience closes the gap between new insight and action.
Debrief and application conversations facilitate transfer and impact of learning to the workplace.
Abstract concepts of authenticity, engagement, presence, trust, and shared leadership move into concrete practice.
Your Leaders will be supported to:
Build self-awareness, authenticity and presence
Develop collective and collaborative leadership skills
Develop a strategic, innovative, action focused approach
Build confidence in their leadership capabilities
Navigate volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity
If we are willing to take onboard their leadership lessons, horses are a leveller that no human can match. Quite simply, they make the invisible, visible.
