Corporate Teambuilding and Leadership Development with Horses
The experience of working as volunteer staff when training our horses will introduce you to the value of partnering with horses in developing leadership and non-verbal communication skills. It is a high-impact experience that will remove barriers to productivity and boost bottom-line results. It will reveal important information about your brain and offer practical techniques to become more aware of unconscious thought patterns and to use your mind more effectively. You will learn how to respond positively to negative circumstances instead of adversely reacting to them, and your team will learn to work together, overcome obstacles, and achieve goals together quickly.

“Understanding energetic communication had a huge impact on me. I was able to take stock of my own energy and its effect on how I communicate, to build authentic relationships and being present with people. I am working on how my energy affects all of the people I interact with and I am learning to control it more effectively. In my work life, this understanding will me be more effective because I can show that I care and want all of my students to gain value from my classes. I see how leaders I work with try to use force as a leadership style and miss the point of effective leadership. I need to remind myself to self regulate my energy because you can’t hide an energy that is “off”. It is communicated whether you intend to or not. John is an excellent instructor. This was a wonderfully beneficial experience to me personally and to my professional life. I really enjoyed doing this with my team!”

"The entire day was very impactful for me. I loved learning about energy and how animals sense it and then being able to see and experience it firsthand! When interacting with others I learned how powerful our energy is and the role it plays in communication. I am able to directly apply these principles in the classes I teach and how I facilitate them. This was a huge confidence booster for me. Regarding leadership, I realized just how your presence can show your leadership style and the horses really showed me they knew if I was being a leader or not. I learned a lot about myself by watching how the horses interacted with me. I really enjoyed the day. This was a 10++++ experience!”
Chandler Thompson, Program Manager, Colorado Outward Bound
“I learned some new things about communication - that I am in control of many situations, specifically with how they affect me and how I respond. Your own thoughts definitely influence you. This was an awesome experience for my students and staff alike. John is very insightful!”
