You may lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.
Horses are unique animals: they are very responsive to their environment and our energy, becoming instant mirrors for those around them. Horses sense and respond to a person’s intentions, emotions and thoughts that are conveyed subconsciously through body language. Similar to people in your team who aren’t engaged with you, horses give you direct feedback as to why your strategies aren’t working and why you aren’t getting the results for yourself as a leader in your organisation.
A natural horsewoman herself, Angela discovered the power horses have over people and their emotional state while working in leadership roles. She knew horses had the power to support, guide and teach successful leadership. Her programs and training combine years of horsemanship, leadership strategy and culture development.
Equenti’s flagship equine facilitated leadership program, Hooked on Leadership, provides a dynamic process of building leadership and self-awareness skills through horse-human interactions. The ability of managers and leaders to effectively embody these skills impacts an organisation’s culture, engagement and as a result, bottom line. Participants are able to identify their limiting behaviour patterns that inhibit them from developing trusting relationships in business with their teams and in their relationships outside of work. In this way they learn more about themselves, their emotional state and how they serve their people.
