Leadership Development with a Difference
Leadership equine quotient
LeadershipEQ provides innovative hands on training and development programs with a difference.
From emotional intelligence, to leadership development, to mindfulness to coaching, our programs are hands on. Each participant is provided with a pragmatic toolbox and is able to immediately practice concepts in a safe environment, getting instant, honest feedback.
All our programs are underpinned by the latest research from the worlds best known thought leaders - including Sinek, Porath, Eurich, Goleman, Posner, Kouzes, Adair, Dan Pink, Lencioni, Goldsmith and Medina. Not only are participants provided with the best models and frameworks, they are given the opportunity to be hands on and practice skills. A blend of the theoretical and practical.
All learning is      Authentic     Experiential   Impactful    
LeadershipEQ helps leaders at all levels to be the best they can be.
Our hands on programs provide the opportunity for participants to learn the theory, apply new skills and get immediate feedback.
With horses as our co-facilitators, we use the power of their extraordinary sensitivity to help you experience and understand what effective leadership, communication, emotional intelligence and mindfulness feels like.

While leadership theory can be taught in the classroom, leadership itself is about behaviour and thus is best if it can be learned experientially, by actually “doing and getting “hands on”.

All our activities are untaken on the ground. There is no riding. No knowledge of horses is required.

We do not teach riding nor do we provide Equine Assisted Therapy.

Strategic Leaders

You are also responsible for executing strategy, so Strategy to Execution to Review may be the program you are looking for.

Or you may wish to give your leadership team a unique and memorable  team building event. In this case, a Team Day may be what you are looking for.

Alternatively we can design a Bespoke program especially for your needs.

After just one day with Helen and working with her Horses I got to see how there are times when I completely miss the behavioural cues people are giving me because I am making them mean something different from what they are,  or I am busying my head with too many things at once, or my visions, instructions and
expectations have not been clearly communicated.
