Horses for Courses® and Beyond Theory are showcasing our unique approach to developing engaging leaders.

Join us to learn how to:

  • Lead and engage with others with your own authenticity
  • Communicate a compelling vision to energise and enthuse your people
  • Engage people to deliver increased performance to meet your customers’ needs
  • Raise your self-awareness and gain feedback on your own personal impact
  • Gain increased clarity of your own strategic direction
  • Create your very own framework for improving  levels of employee engagement

This one day masterclass is workshop-based, combining equine facilitated learning and the latest best practice on employee engagement. This unique blend will enable you to maximise your own performance and tap into the potential of your team members.

Engaging leaders connect with their people in an authentic and congruent way; horses have the uncanny knack of being able to read people. Due to their social and hierarchical nature, horses will only follow when they perceive you to be a trustworthy leader, and they experience you as having the courage of your convictions and know where you are going!

Horses have no pre-conceived ideas; they are not influenced by who you are, your job title, the house you live in, the car you drive, the clothes you wear, the holiday you went on, or the size of your bank account. They live in the moment and will give you immediate and honest feedback about how you are relating to them.

You will have the opportunity to learn and practice techniques which will help you become an even more engaging leader, both in the classroom and whilst working with the horses.

The highly experiential nature of this programme will enable you to really practice and integrate the key skills to enable you to lead your teams in an authentic and compelling way.

Our masterclass is highly interactive. You will be guided throughout the day by skilled facilitators who have up to date knowledge on the latest employee engagement strategy and thinking.

After a welcoming coffee, light breakfast and a brief introduction in the training room of our delightful converted barn, you will have the opportunity to explore the four key areas of employee engagement and then evidence how engaging your leadership is through working with the horses. Refreshments will be served throughout the day including a two course lunch.

Who should attend?

We welcome leaders who are at any stage of their leadership career. So whether you are an experienced leader or just starting out on your leadership journey, you will benefit from our masterclass. If you are not satisfied then you don't pay.

Horses for Courses® uses equine assisted experiential learning techniques to raise personal awareness of core interpersonal skills. Horses are prey animals and humans are predators. Our hard wiring is completely different. Mastering how we can find a common ground for understanding and communicating opens up the dynamic opportunity for learning how to communicate with anyone in any given circumstance.
