Be the most effective leader you can be

Language of Connection

Great leaders  are distinguished by their emotional intelligence or EQ. More than education, experience, knowledge and intellect combined, your EQ is the single biggest predictor of your success as a leader. In fact, a recent study demonstrated that EQ accounts for 58% of performance in all types of jobs.

Gain EQ skills to expand your leadership potential

Join Amanda and her horses for this one and a half-day intensive that will transform your leadership and grow your EQ. Using a blend of hands-on practice and skill development, you’ll learn the essential EQ competencies of effective leadership: understanding yourself, managing yourself, understanding others, and managing others.

Why learning EQ from horses works

Horses show us how to be better…people! They are good judges of leaders: their life depends upon it. Horses are masters at emotional intelligence because:

  • Horses sense our emotions, including those we keep below the surface
  • Horses pick up messages that we miss, or are unaware of giving
  • Horses directly reflect the people who handle them — they give instant feedback.

Benefits & Results

It’s not what you learn about a horse that makes them important; it’s what they show you about yourself and others.

  • Learn how your nonverbal communication and body language affect your relationships.
  • Understand the importance of leading with emotional honesty.
  • Improve your communication and decision-making skills.
  • Grow your ability to influence your team.
