"Experiential activities built on each other; consistent tie in with leading employees; expert facilitators and program design.Many applications for leadership using horses; good way to get outside and in nature." -Cathy
"It integrated leadership skills with experiential learning in a unique way where participants can truly see and feel the actions of their behaviors and the concepts come to life...Great way to help build on communication skills for leaders- also great reminder. This session is an excellent way to gain insight on your own leadership and communication skills in a unique way. Creative and insightful." -Krystena
"Very different from traditional classroom learning. Love the interactions with horses. It was a great assessment of any strengths and challenges - we all have room to grow/improve. It is a great opportunity to step out of your comfort zone, think differently." -Jeff
"It gave us time to reflect on how we lead, what we do when things aren't going as planned and how to relate that to life & work." -Gina
"The training is truly unique by linking effective leadership and horses. What I liked most about the program was working with the horse. Trying to communicate what I need her to do with noises, gestures, and touches...Increase and expand my communication skills. A better understanding of EQ (emotional quotient)." -Toni
"Good for new leaders...What I liked best about the program was how leadership of people is used with horses. Translation of horses to leadership was well done. The nonverbal exercises are so transferable. [I also] love the casual, mature environment. Participants have no personal agenda so freedom to share was really helpful." -Nancy
"Great presenter, beautiful peace, nice horses, good horse interaction exercises, great topic, especially EQ (emotional quotient). Everything is so well thought through and well done, this is a very nice experiential experience. Personally it showed me that I tend to lead the way I am most comfortable with, and that with a little effort to stretch myself I can be a more effective leader." -John
"What I'm taking away is leadership is different than managing." -Peter
