Ladies Leading Differently: A Workshop for Women

May 16, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Learn Leading Differently!

Whether you’re a leader of 1 (yourself), several (your family/ your team) or a parade of many, your leadership style and the culture you create will determine your success (whatever that means to you!) This workshop with horses will help to expand upon your soft skills, recognize your strengths, shed light on blindspots and engage curiosity during the exchange of feedback, in real-time, with a horse.

  • awareness
  • accountability
  • confidence
  • decisiveness
  • empathy
  • focus
  • honesty
  • inspiration
  • listening & articulating
  • optimism, and more

How would your own life, your home-life, your career be different or better if you had some real-time practice with theses skills?  Sure, some people are “born leaders”, but it’s important to note that many leadership skills are – and can be – developed over time.

Let a horse help you discover your best self and your greater potential.
