The horses (prey species) responding to the human (predator species) through the "energetic vibes" that they sense via electromagnetic field.
Why I am doing it?
We all had that manager who was micromanaging us (a little ,or a lot); or a manager who didn’t really know how to manage people, projects or deadlines; or the manager whose ideas were simply unreasonable (or couldn’t be implemented) and left their subordinates wondering about their own abilities and competencies. Quite often, good workers are promoted to a manager’s position, but do they really know what it means to manage? What it means to set appropriate boundaries, to inspire their employees and push them when needed? Do they know how to step into a nurturer role, providing the glue necessary for the team to succeed in a task that is overwhelming or challenging?
In the book "The power of the herd", Linda Kohanov developed a method based on an ancient wisdom of the herd dynamics. She spent significant amount of time around horses and discovered that their balanced herd is similar to an organization that either supports their member to succeed in their common mission or destroys them (sometimes slowly). Being the non-predatory CEO means to lead your “herd” to prosperity in a safe environment where every employee can thrive and become their best version of self.
I spent the first part of my career working for a large corporate organization, and eventually ended up in a position managing employees. Even though I was lucky enough to be provided with some management education and training, it wasn’t enough to actually do my job well. Years and a career change later, transitioning to a mental health professional with a successful private practice, I learned about Linda Kohavov's model through personal experience with Costa Rican horses and professional workshops. I began to implement my knowledge and skills with my current clients, which helped to develop the current model.

During the trainings the horses are our teachers and they playing out the scenes from our lives that we need to see and adjust our responses to them.
