CONSCIOUS LEADERSHIP with Horses –

THE PATH TO AWARENESS AND WELL-BEING

Why Work With Horses?

Magic happens when we co-facilitate with horses and work together using an invitational approach. The beauty in interacting with horses is they help us to see past our baggage, and connect with who we really are. At every moment, they give direct and powerful feedback. A clear vision of ourselves,  brings a whole new perspective, making better decisions in our daily life. We feel more connected and in sync.

WHY I LOVE WORKING WITH HORSES!

I shared your article with my my husband and my daughter who are both horse people and we all loved it! It fact it sparked on a family debate 🙂

“The point about horses helping leaders to be more authentic and real is ‘spot on’ and we see great potential for integrating this practice into leadership development. As the world is getting more dependent on technology, I observe that we humans need to reconnect with and learn from nature and rediscover who we are. Trying to exercise more dominance and control over our environment (both in and outside of work) is taking us humans in the wrong direction and rarely works. My husband worked with horses with his management team and observed that those members of the team who displayed dominating and controlling characteristics really struggled with building rapport with horses and could’t get them to cooperate.”  Olga Grygier, CEO, PWC Central Europe

Testimonial from Course Participant:

“The experience was  TRANSFORMATIONAL! I gained new skills to put into practice to help me understand myself and the world around me. A new perspective on others which I will apply directly at work. Knowledge and wisdom from my co participants and the facilitators. A sense of release and healing. Insights into myself. Close relationships with some amazing women. And so much fun with the horses.”  Corinne Williams

Outcomes of this approach:

  • Greater self-responsibility
  • Authenticity and congruency
  • Permission to feel and express emotions
  • New personal insights
  • Positive life-affirming attitudes
  • Healthy relationships and connectedness
  • A deep sense of well-being

Overview of the workshop:

  • 6 hours interacting with the horses
  • 4 hours on mindfulness  and contemplative practices
  • 6 hours developing values-based leadership

Plus: Enjoy the serenity of being one with nature, in the country side of Johor, and the indulgence of delicious, home cooked vegetarian and non- vegetarian meals.

Coming Home – Listening to Our Inner Voice

It’s time to return home to Ottawa, Canada. My inner voice has been calling me home for over a year now. There are family concerns, work related opportunities, but most of all, my intuition is telling me it’s time. I know it’s a calling from my soul and something I cannot, and should not ignore. The same happened to me last summer when I decided it was time to get certified as an Equine Facilitator and develop a program working with horses in conscious leadership development.

Listening to our soul is the same as listening to our inner voice. The voice of our authentic selves. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have the courage it takes to do this. We are so used to listening to the voice in our head which tell us:
– “The time is not right.”
– “You’re not good enough, smart enough, rich enough, or strong enough.”
– “You don’t have the right credentials.”
– “Who do you think you are?”
– “If you don’t do it right the first time, you don’t have any business doing it at all!”

If we listen to this voice of self-deprecating doubt, how can we ever reach for and achieve our dreams? Where do these voices come from? And why do we let them make the most important decision in our lives?

Our authentic inner voice comes from a place a strength. A place of goodness that wants the best for us. Sadly, what happens from an early age, is we hear these voices from those around us who have a huge influence in our lives. Instead of listening to ourselves, we let others define who we are and what we are capable of.

The same happens in organizations. Every person in your organization has a voice. What are they trying to tell you? What would they be saying if you gave them a voice? What are their hopes and dreams for the company and what it could achieve if you listened to them?

One of the reasons I love being a professional group facilitator, and focus on cultural transformation with the Cultural Transformation Tools from the Barrett Values Centre, is they give people a voice in the process of change. It is in the process of dialogue on the results from the assessments, when inner transformation happens. And inner transformation precedes outer transformation.

The assessments are very simple and yet very profound. Simple because they ask only 3 questions. Profound, because the answers identify the corporate soul. In reviewing and reflecting on the results the group makes meaning of the assessment by giving voice and developing a common understanding for the values they selected. Those things which are most important to them.

The most powerful and impactful benefit of sharing values, people build a deep sense of connection and trust. Why? Because our values are the language of the heart, and the heart does not lie. Trust, loyalty, respect, where do you experience these in your body? Your head or your heart?
How are you giving voice to your inner self to achieve the dreams you have in life? How are you giving voice to your people in a way that could help you evolve and realize the full potential of your organization? Self-leadership gives us the power to make good choices for ourselves, because a happy inner life leads to a healthy mind and body.

The same is true for organizations. As leaders, we need to stop and actively listen to our people. They are the corporate life force, the human spirit filled with positivity that has wisdom which can give the best guidance in times of change.

Yes, it can be scary, not knowing what the future will bring. The same was true 5 years ago when we left home and ventured to the other side of the world. We had no idea what would be in store for us. How would our message be received? Would we find work?

In not listening to the voice of self-doubt, my husband and I have had the adventure of a life-time. We’ve met the most incredible people, and yes, leaving is bitter-sweet. But we know, it’s important to listen to the calling of our souls. Now, it’s time to come home.

Good bye Singapore with love. And thank you for all the wonderful memories.

Joanna

Tuning Into Leadership: How to Become a Conscious Leader by Listening

At this moment in time, I believe the greatest challenge we have as human beings in the 21st century is learning how to collaborate effectively.  What got us here today is not going to get us there tomorrow. So how do we need to change in order to innovate and solve our greatest challenges?

 

If it’s true, and psychologists say it is, the power speech is only 7% of the communication process. To become consciously effective at leading collaborative organizations, we need to learn how to tune into each other by developing our non-verbal communication skills, the other 93%.

 

Collaboration takes social intelligence. It’s made up of our IQ X our EQ.  What this means is … if you’re an intelligent leader, as most of you are, but your EQ is not something you’ve consciously developed, in all probability, your collaboration skills are not going to be the best role model for others to follow. Am I right?

 

Developing collaborative power involves socially aware leadership.  Being able to tune into another person using our empathy, compassion, and intuition.  Taking the time to perceive what is going on with the people you’re working with.

 

We’ve all have bad days. You get up on the wrong side of the bed, have an argument with your spouse, and leave the house in a rotten mood.  We’re all human, and yes, we do have bad days. You walk into work, and being human, it’s not possible to park these negative emotions at the front door. You have to bring them into work with you. Now, that morning you have an important meeting to attend that is going to discuss and make some critical decisions for the company. My question is, how great would it be if the person leading that meeting first did a check-in process to find out where everyone was at? Asking people how they are feeling?

 

This is leadership that is tuning into and listening to the non-verbal information in the room. It would give you a chance to share your mental and emotional state of not being at your very best. At this point, it’s up to the leader to decide if it’s wise to proceed, or wait until a better time without shame, blame, power plays, or sarcasm.

 

This is an example of social intelligence in action. Tuning in and listening to the unspoken cues in the room.  It’s taking the time to pause and follow you intuition. Facial cues and body language all tell us something if we are paying attention.  It also means you’re focusing on building relationships with your people so you know when someone is having a bad day.

 

Sometimes taking a pause and checking in can help transform negative emotions into a positive state of mind because you took the time to show you care about them.  It gives people an opportunity to check-in with themselves as well, and develops self-awareness of their feelings and those of others.  It creates the human connection that is vital for successful collaboration.

 

When you show people you care, they will care what you know.

 

If you would like to develop your social intelligence and that of your team, come and participate in our next weekend retreat May 31 – June 2. Learning with horses how to develop your Conscious Leadership, the Path to Awareness and Well-Being

 

Here’s what one psychologist had to say about her experience on our most recent retreat:

Much love, from Singapore.

Knowledge is Empowerment

I’m currently in the process of my own personal transformation. It’s definitely an uncomfortable place to be, because of the feelings of uncertainty in my life. As I sit and reflect on all the emotions I’m feeling, being able to identify why I’m feeling this way, and what I need to make myself feel better, I can sense my confidence returning, and I’m able to make decisions with greater certitude.

When was the last time you felt uncertain about a decision you were making? How much time did you take to reflect on the emotions you were feeling and the beliefs about yourself or the situation you were in?

Authentic empowerment is knowing who you are, your preferred communication style, and way of processing information. This is a critical step on the journey to developing greater self-awareness and making better decisions in your life.

How comfortable are you with your ‘power’?

What beliefs do you have about your sense of being ‘powerful’?

What is one thing you would do differently if you felt ‘empowered’?

 

Horse is the archetype for ‘POWER’. Working with horses on the ground, safely and effectively helps individuals become aware of and own their ‘power’. I think we can all do better at being responsible for our mental, physical, and emotional selves.

What self-beliefs do you have that limit or promote you sense of ‘power’?

Most of us are unaware of our beliefs. They operate beneath the surface of our awareness, much like our personal values.

Working with horses on the ground, they help us to see and feel our beliefs in action because they mirror our internal landscape.  Being animals of prey for thousands of years makes horses ultra-sensitive and tuned into their surroundings.   They can sense our internal feelings better and with greater awareness than we can!

How would you like to become aware of your beliefs and what they are doing to support you in achieving your full potential as a manager, mother, husband, sister, child, or friend?

The simple fact is people who make responsible choices for themselves are healthier and happier. People who feel empowered live in peace and harmony with themselves and others.

Working with horses on the ground is a reflective experience mirroring our personal and interpersonal relationships.  The interactive exercises develop communication skills, promote teambuilding, and contribute to being responsible for ourselves.

At the heart of what we do is give permission for people to fully feel and express their feelings. Giving voice to emotions and thoughts that are attached to feelings.

Our next human evolution is interconnection. We need to develop skills in cooperation and collaboration for healthy interdependence.  It all begins with self-awareness. Knowledge is empowerment.

 

As within, so without.

 

Developing our ability to make conscious choices in service of our hearts.

Developing our ability to choose behaviours and change feelings with conscious awareness is authentic empowerment.

 

Allowing. Listening. And trusting the process.

 

Much love, from Singapore.
