Corporate Leadership Training
Add Horses to Accelerate Your Team’s Leadership Power
Diane Hunter, Horse Whisperer and Leadership Coach, offers a unique leadership training program for corporate and executive management teams. She uses horses to help participants integrate intelligence, emotion and intuition in their leadership roles.
What Makes a Great Leader?
A great leader is someone who utilizes his or her intuitive power and who understands how nonverbal communication influences all interactions.
Leadership Extends Beyond Words
Research by Professor Albert Mehrabian at UCLA discovered that when we communicate, about 7% of the meaning is through verbal language. The rest is through nonverbal communication including gestures and energy.
Experiential Learning Provides Fast Results
Although there are many theoretical and academic views on leadership, there is no faster or more effective way to learn how to implement leadership than by accepting 1000 pounds of instant feedback from a horse. This learning process is particularly helpful for individuals and teams who want to lead with agility and creativity in challenging environments.
The horses and Diane offer an experiential learning environment that opens up awareness and understanding of true leadership. Horses are extremely sensitive to all the nonverbal cues happening all the time and when you step into the round pen with a horse, they will show you exactly what you are communicating beyond words.
Momentum Starts with Emotion
Horses pick up on your emotion and will detect if you’re leading from a state of fear or state of ease. If you attempt to lead from a place of fear, control or bribery they will want nothing to do with you. But when you lead from a place of ease and clarity, you become magnetic and they want to join you.
The energy that makes a 1000 lb horse connect with you and willingly choose you as the leader is the same energy that causes people to invest in your brilliant ideas and follow your lead on a team. Combine this unique understanding of nonverbal communication with savvy business skills and you have a powerful leadership toolkit in your hands.
How Does This Apply To You and Your Business?
The skills learned during this hands-on experience will help you and your team develop an authentic connection with one another and empower each team member to contribute as a compassionate and aware leader. The horses will give you instant and honest feedback so you can make drastic changes in as little as a day!
See what your nonverbal communication is really saying and learn to communicate exactly what you intend. If you are open to a 100% honest evaluation of your leadership style from the horses, you will learn more about yourself as a communicator in one day than in any classroom.
Rediscover the skills within you. Unleash your true ability to lead from your core.
Team members will be on foot and safely guided through insightful, interactive activities with horses. None of the activities involve riding.
All levels of horsemanship are welcome. No previous horse experience required.
For teams wanting a hands-on experience, group sizes are kept small (12 participants maximum) to ensure plenty of focus on team dynamics and communication. For teams larger than 12, multiple sessions are highly recommended.
