You know the saying, “don’t trust anyone your dog doesn’t like”, well there is some truth to it.  Animals that rely on packs or herds for survival look for strong leaders that are going to keep them safe and successful.  Through verbal and non-verbal cues they can sense who is a strong leader and naturally trust that person.   With this concept in mind we are excited to present our chapter members with a very unique leadership session called p.Link Equus. 


Learn about the type of non-verbal cues you may be sending to your fellow team members with the help of a specially trained executive coach and a horse. 


The session will start out with an orientation of why this type of learning, what to expect and safety rules.  Then you take the time to set an intention (ie, understanding your nonverbal signals, speaking directly without words, etc.) before you get in the ring for the one on one sessions with the equus coach and the horse.   You will spend 8-10 minutes in the ring with an executive coach observing who then debriefs directly with you about what occurred.  In the afternoon, there’s a group activity – team herding, where the small group is assigned a task to work through, watch the team dynamics within a set time limit.  Again, debrief what happened and what learned. 


We can then translate the learnings into an organizational perspective, what did we see and how do we make it real in our work environments, how do we practice making it better, how this could relate back to our firms, and bring it back to our people.  How is what you saw and learned like what happens at our firms. 


Due to the nature of the training space is very limited and will be offered on a first come first serve basis.  This opportunity is graciously being offered as an introductory session for free from Gretchen Pisano but we are asking for a registration fee of $50 to go towards stable fees.
