Young Leaders – Authentic Leadership Programs
Horses are exceptional teachers when it comes to developing leadership skills. As herd animals, they intuitively seek strong leadership in order to feel safe and secure. If we don’t provide the leadership, the horse will! For example in order to lead a horse successfully, participants must be consistent and clear. We can’t ‘make’ a 500kg animal do anything it doesn’t want to!
Our programs help participants understand the importance of strong leadership. Once they are taught the basics of dealing properly with a horse, they can become the leader the horse seeks. When the horse feels safe, cooperation is a hundred fold and they can easily get the horse to do what is asked of it. As facilitators, we help participants parallel this learning to their everyday lives, improving how they with others in all areas.
