To effectively lead we need to know who we are and what we want
To lead others, we should know ourselves. In this one-day seminar, leaders can experience the meaning and effects of authentic leadership of oneself, others and teams. They gain valuable insights into the natural and intuitive aspects of leadership and can experience the reflection of their conscious or unconscious impact on their employees and teams.
By working with the horse that can represent for example the co-worker, a team-goal, a client, the strength and weaknesses of my leadership and communication skills become visible and can be recognized. The leaders get the opportunity to explore how flexible and creative they are in the choice of tools to communicate and lead- the horses will reflect exactly what they receive and offer us a direct and unbiased feedback.
Horses naturally look for the leader and willingly follow a clear and authentic leadership. They have a very refined sense for authenticity in their leader and can’t be deceived by pretence. Horses, like employees, don’t compromise when it comes to their safety and well-being. Based on respect and trust they voluntarily follow who radiates clarity, determination and calmness. Here horses are very similar to people working in teams. Horses help us to develop our innate leadership qualities and experience what authentic leadership means and how it actually feels by embodying it.
In various exercises we invite you to:
- recognize your own intuitive and unaware leadership style and your team personality
- try out different leadership styles
