At the core of authentic leadership is empathy, communication and consistency – big asks in a world with highly dynamic, potentially political and demanding environments. Finding a genuine leadership “mirror” giving us feedback which we can trust and explored can be hard to find.
Horses are masters of showing us how genuine we really are in delivering these skills. With horses you get what you asked for even if that wasn’t what you wanted! They respond to what they are experiencing at any moment. They are not swayed by our “perceived” status or standing. This means feedback is direct, clean and timely.
One of the most memorable parts of the Conscious Leader program is the “horse day” where we have the privilege to work with the best leadership coaches there are. Partnering with A20 Coaching and their team including Phoebe, Floozy, Hector, Julia, Levi and JohnJo leaders are taken through a series of tasks to explore and play non-verbal communication, leadership roles and trust.
Cohort 30 allowed us special access to their recent day giving us a glimpse of the beautiful, humbling and fun experience with the equine coaching team.
