Emotional Intelligence for Leaders & Teams

Do you want to be a more effective leader, a better influencer and enhance your leadership presence? Are you looking to stay more calm and composed during public speaking engagements or even at team and staff meetings?

One unique, yet effective approach that we have discovered through Equine Intelligence is by bringing horses to the “classroom” and providing experiential education. The experiential activities, on the ground, are set up with the horses to relate specifically to your goals and outcomes. After each activity discussion occurs to gather discoveries and actions to be taken back for integration.

Just as horses can finely tune into their environment, they will tune into you and “read” what is going on with you and respond immediately. Without judgment or agenda, the horse may choose to move away, not move, connect with you, walk with you, or ignore you completely and provide a changing mirror of how you are leading moment by moment. They become your master teacher in your quest to be a leader who is more emotionally intelligent, present, integrated, congruent, creative, and clear and confident in your actions.

Emotional Intelligence is found in studies to be four times more important in determining professional success than raw IQ and training. As Bob Wall, author of Coaching for Emotional Intelligence and Working Relationships like to say, “IQ and training get you to the arena; EQ helps you win the game.”
