Equine Based Management Workshop (EBMW)

Of the skills that separate the good from the outstanding manager, the most important one is the ability to correctly identify the current needs of your counterpart (whether it is your employee, peer, boss or outside party), and to adapt your behavior to those current needs.

 

A successful manager possesses the flexibility to assume different roles with different people, and in different scenarios. Such a manager is able to correctly apply appropriate responses when force or support are needed, when reevaluating data or accommodating changes are required; or when creative visionary thinking is required to take the team outside the box; or ensure they stick to the plan.

 

Through the natural structure of the horse’s herd, Equine Based Management Workshop (EBMW) offers unique insights into your own strengths and areas for improvement in both the ability to correctly identify the situations where each of those roles are needed; and your ability to correctly assume those roles with authenticity, consistency and transparency.

Your teacher for the day will be your horse.

Why horses?

Horses are prey animals (as opposed to predators) and therefore they live in herds that protect each other through effective communication and cooperation as to how each horse rotates between the various roles required for survival. They are constantly seeking to strengthen their herd; they value diversity and seek the opportunity to add different species (such as humans) to their group. However, in order for anyone to be admitted to their herd, the horses require two key traits:

 

  1. The ability to participate in different roles based on the needs of the herd

  2. Authenticity and congruency between your internal feelings and your external actions

Horse pairing:

The first step of the session will be the horse pairing. Multiple horses will be brought into the arena, and the horse will select the person they wish to interact during the day.
