WHY HORSES IN LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
“We are already what we seek. It waits like a seed to be loved into blossom.”
Mark Nepo - The Endless Practice: Becoming Who You Were Born to Be
IT BEGINS WITH SELF KNOWLEDGE
Our programs are grounded in the understanding that conscious self-knowledge is at the very core of leadership development. Knowing self first, being curious and having an acute awareness of one’s center of gravity, inner voice and grounding values are all key components of our four core principles of leadership: Cognitive, Inner, Contextual & Somatic Wisdom. Leaders optimize their effectiveness when they are conscious of their wholeness and congruence within their mind, heart, body and environment.
Begin your exploration with the following reflective probes:
When do I feel most grounded? My most authentic, genuine self?
When in this state, what am I feeling, thinking, and doing?
Now picture yourself in your role as a leader and ask yourself the same questions.
