|EMPOWERING LEADERS! The
workshop featured in NJ Meetings +
In the Company of Horses
Pemberton, NJ 08068
July 22-23, 2017
Your Workshop is facilitated by a team of two EAGALA Advanced Certified Practitioners
and a congruent established herd of horses. You will not bring your own horse. (See our
horsemanship page for those classes.)
You'll be outside or in an indoor arena and in the company of horses all day so wear
clothes that are old and comfortable with closed toe shoes. There will be breaks
throughout the day for comfort, refreshments, lunch, reflecting and journaling.
How and what we eat at these workshops is important, the food will be organic wherever
possible and all dietary needs will be met. You are in good hands, you will not have to
worry about a thing.
Workshops are from 9-5 for two days in a row.
Discussion of homework over refreshments
Horse Activities all day: Your Leadership.
Understanding the difference between predatory and non predatory power and when to employ each effectively.
Preparing for difficult conversations
Engaging in consensual leadership (the ideas of match/pace/lead)
Enjoy the ride! Setting the stage for the future!
The way Experiential Learning Works is it works on you! You'll learn by doing. Affinity for or experiences with horses is not
necessary for an unforgettable learning experience. There is no riding.
