Leadership Straight From The Horses’ Mouth!
With Julia Felton
Business is changing rapidly and we all know that the old styles of leadership will no longer get you where you want to go. But how do you learn these new behaviours to help you lead in the fast-paced, ever-changing world that is the 21st century?
What if a horse could show you a new paradigm? A way of acting and being that will serve you more effectively in the future. After all horses have existed for millions of years and have learnt how to
adapt and become agile to survive in their surroundings. Some might say they have learnt to lead-on-the-hoof.
The challenges the herd face daily mirror some of the challenges that business is facing today. They teach us how to stay grounded and present in times of chaos, and how to summon moment to moment calm, strength, focus, respect, and trust to maintain a mutually safe and beneficial working relationship. They offer immediate feedback about our presence, emotional intelligence, and body language. They model for us how to work as a real team, one where the leadership is shared, where communication is authentic and where the vision is crystal clear. How would you like these traits in your business?
During this practical, interactive masterclass you will have the unique opportunity to work hands on with the horses to receive 100% unbiased instant feedback about your leadership style and the impact you have on others.
- Are you an inspiring, compelling and motivating leader who people want to follow?
- Are your behaviours aligned and congruent?
- Is your communication clear and effective?
And if things are not going as planned then you have an opportunity to re-calibrate
what you’re doing and experience a different result.
There is no horse riding during this masterclass as all sessions are carried out on the ground and it doesn’t matter whether you have any horse experience or not. The opportunity for a breakthrough, whether in your business or personal life, is profound. This event is all about experiential learning, so you will also be participating providing feedback on what you observe.
Some of the outcomes you can expect are:
- How you need to grow for your business to grow
- Leading out of your comfort zone
- How to use your leadership strengths to overcome barriers to success
- The importance of body language and how to communicate with clarity
- Creating a collaborative team
- Negotiating conflict
- and so much ……….
