PPD Event: As a leader, do you want to increase your connection power ? Learn it from Horses ! Expect the unexpected !

Seminar on Centered Leadership - Take some time to develop yourself
Too many brilliant leaders are missing out on a huge wave of transformation within their organizations because of their lack of awareness to another dimension of leadership.  

Spending just one day in the presence of horses will unleash creativity and open the mind to an authentic leadership :
  • strengthening your communication & listening skills for better relations with your teams;
  • discovering & experiencing how to become more agile as a leader.
No leader will manage the same way after facing a 600 kg horse and attempting to communicate with him !

Why horses ?

As prey animals, horses are finely tuned to listen, sense, notice and respond to change. Their « flight » instincts become instant mirrors and non-judgmental feedback mechanisms for humans. They respond to a person’s intentions, emotions and thoughts that are conveyed subconsciously through body language. Through the experience or observing a horse’s response to their requests and directions, each person learns how to communicate more effectively, face their fears and manage their emotions, and become more consistent and congruent with their actions.

As leaders, as human leaders, we need to lead more with head and heart, with mind and body.

Sessions with horses are highly interactive and provide an ‘in the moment’ learning experience which can be difficult to acquire in more traditional settings.

"The idea that we are separate beings is an illusion.
Managing the contagious nature of thought and emotion is difficult when your head is at war with your heart."
Way of the Horse - Linda Kohanov

Annik Goudsmet, Certified Coach Level 4 from “The Academy for Coaching with Horses”, USA will guide you through that intense leadership experience.

Friday, September 27th, 2019

Location: Brabant wallon

Here is already some information:
  • The seminar will be the whole day, from 9.00am to 5.30pm, with one break in the morning and one in the afternoon + lunch time.
  • To start, there will be a “conceptual” introduction to explain why working with horses, why it can be helpful, etc.
  • After this, you will have, throughout the day, different exercises with the horses. Those will probably be determined beforehand, as we will send to all participants a little survey in the beginning of September, prepared by our coach.
More information about the location and planning will follow after registrations, as timing will depend on the number of participants.

Remark: This experience is about “connection” not about horse riding. So, no prior experience with horses, horse riding ... is required!
