Why horses help people learn
Interpersonal skills are recognised as superior "soft skills" to allow us to successfully live, communicate & work with people. This means people willingly & effectively working together and collaborating in teams, understanding & acknowledging each other's strengths, roles, & contributions. And in the workplace, teams being guided by coaching leaders who inspire confidence, trust and motivate their people to want to follow them. With the strongest communication skills, verbal and non-verbal.
Those soft skills; easy to want to develop, hard to teach.
Enter Four Legged Sages. Tapping the superior emotional intelligence of horses, we take participants out of their comfort zones to a place where they have to not only think afresh but listen to & feel. Where words cannot mislead because actions & reactions will speak much louder - and the learning and empowerment begins.
As humans we often find it hard to listen to feedback on our behaviou from other humans, mainly as that feedback is unconsciously agenda-loaded. So the ability to empower people to understand and teach themselves, through the use of the horse as the ultimate mirror, is unparalleled. It shows participants a true reflection of their current - and potential - behaviours.
HORSES HAVE A UNIQUE ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE HONESTLY AND CLEARLY.
TO CUT THROUGH AND MAKE A POINT. CREATING MOMENTS OF AHA AND LEARNING.
Results are cleaner feedback; think of it as heightening our more unconscious senses of sight & feeling by removing the dominant sound sense. Eliminating complex verbal communication and forcing visual observation and action. Facilitated throughout by our certified practitioners, participants complete their sessions translating these horse-taught aha's into insights & actions to bring back to the more complex, human world or workplace.
All with your participants' feet firmly planted on the ground, no riding in sight because your horse is your team member. or teacher.
